Nigella Shadow (Niggy) ~ The Tortoiseshell Princess
Sleek, sweet-tempered (no matter how she looks … and sometimes she can look pretty fierce) affectionate, funny and the absolute best cat I ever rescued.
In this picture, she’s sitting in one of the time-share boxes that dot the rooms of our house. I’ve been trying to get a really good picture of her, but she’s hard to photograph. Being a modest little creature, she turns her head or shuts her eyes when she sees me with my camera.
She follows me wherever I go and sits quietly nearby as I do chores. She’s an inside cat and yes, she’s spoiled, but in a good way. She just expects love, because that’s all she’s ever known. She makes me laugh out loud at least once each day, and her presence reminds me that God is amazing because He put such heart into such a wee being.
She is my cat, and I am her human.
