I Heart Faces "Pets" Challenge

Basha

I have tons of photos I could have entered for i heart faces this week (over time we have had 5 cats)... but I picked this one. This is our sweetest kitty, Basha. She's pretty much a member of the family; we've had her for over 16 years. She loves Mom more than anything in the world and would be the happiest cat alive if Mom would just hold her 24/7. She is on her last leg now, and we will miss her very much. I took this picture one day when she was doing so bad she could barely walk, and we thought she wouldn't make it through the day. I realized that because both Mom and Basha really aren't too keen on being in front of a camera lens (unlike my other cat, Gavana, who loooves the limelight), we had very few (if any) pictures of them together. For several shots Basha just would not look at me and then - for a moment, she looked straight at me. This is one of my favorite photos I have of her.

  11. She's beautiful. I teared up reading about her being at the end of life. We lost 2 cats last year and it was very hard. I miss them both dearly.
