Please forgive this very late post. I have been having crazy technical issues with the photo editing apps I use!


Grey cat sandwiched between layers of a grey fleece blanket with the quote, "Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet." by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette.


What can I say about this Spark other than it is purrfect. And Kizmet is the perfect companion as she shows off all four feet as well as some pretty nice toe beans. You may think that Kizmet was lying on top of this blanket and we folded it over the top of her. That, however, is not the case. She wormed her way between the layers all by herself. We have never had another cat that enjoyed being covered up as much as Kizmet.

I thought I was unfamiliar with the author of today’s Spark until I looked up her bio. Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954) was known simply as Collette, which is how I am familiar with her. She was a French author, mime, actress and journalist. Collette is best known for her 1944 novella Gigion which the 1958 film and 1973 stage production of the same name were based. Her short story collection The Tendrils of the Vine is famous in France. I found her history to be quite interesting. I suggest you check out her bio on Wikipedia.

perfect (purrfect) companionSparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

You’ll be able to find out tomorrow over at Friends Furever, as it’s Periwinkle’s turn to plan their adventure. Adventures are more fun when you join in, so they’ll be waiting for you.
