Soda guards my mail

IMG_5950

After I sort the day's mail (my beloved does get some mail, occasionally), my personal letters usually sit in a wee pile until I sit down and read them in one fell swoop. Soda often beats me to it - she knows a lot of my attention goes to mail - and sits upon them, so that I must pet her sufficiently before she will relinquish them.

I know I'm being a little indulgent, posting 4 photos of her settled on this one day's mail pile...

...but hey, I think she's really cute.

  1. And it is very convenient for Soda that the sun shines in just where the mail awaits, too :-)

  2. Indeed, PostMuse - but doesn't the sun shine, metaphorically, wherever good mail awaits? :-) Soda is much more into literal sun.

  3. I love the white triangle on Soda's face :) She looks precious. I really want a cat! :(

  4. So cute - I think Soda deserves the petting before you get to the mail, honestly. :)

  5. She's also making a very good paperweight if a wind comes along :-D

  6. That is the cutest thing in the entire universe. My cats also lay on letters, but they also lay on papers, shoes, clothes, bags, my yarn, craft projects, and ... well, I could go on and on!

    (also I love your table!)

  7. Poof - cats are the best. They increase life's joys exponentially, at least in my life...

    Stephanie - of COURSE Soda gets the petting before I get to the mail!

    Becky - thanks for the compliments... Soda lays on everything else other than letters, too. And we also love our table, it was carefully chosen and remains much loved. :-) I do most of my letter-writing there.

  10. Ahhhh, she's a sweet kitty. Maybe she's actually reading the mail to make sure it's OK for you to read. My kitty also likes to sit on anything she thinks I "might" pay attention to other than her.

  11. My cats always know what's important to me too. Whether it's the black pants/sweater or some other piece I'm going to need, they're right on top of it. I wouldn't have it any other way - that's what lint removers are for :)

  12. She's a cutie. How did she get the name of "Soda"?

  13. Soda was dubbed thusly for a variety of intersecting reasons, but for brevity's sake, let us say it was for her effervescent personality.
