We Three Queens

We three queens of Tennessee are:

Robin, matriarch of the Cat Family here with her just created stained glass likeness.


Robin, a dark Tortie, went OTRB 18 years ago and we still love and miss her.  She reared mom's human sons and did a great job of it too.

 Then there was Admiral.  She followed several years after Robin flew away.  Everyone knows how much Mom and Admiral loved one another.  They made a "girl family" here..just the two of them among all the sons.



Then, there is me.  I am the apple of Mommy's eye though she misses and loves the Ones Who Came Before.  I have taken up the Standard and I bear it proudly.  I make Mommy proud of ME and I am proud of Mommy.  We are a family of girls among all the human brothers.

Mom says she really admires the beautiful stained glass work. So lovely for your Mom now to have all THREE of you kitties in stained glass. Katie, from the descriptions of you on your blog, we are sure you are a very special girl cat. With very endearing ways about you. Your Mommy is fortunate to have found you and you to have found her.
Sending still lots of healing purrs for your favorite brother.

Oh darling, these are so beautiful! You three girls really are the Queens of Tennessee.....which reminds me....soon we have a coronation ceremony to plan. Now, we are going to wait until efurrything is all good and settled down for you all, but then we will have a cermony to end all ceremonies! And Tennessee will have its proper sovereign. Maybe you should warn Governor Haslam?

Shaggy and Scout said...

Oh Meow!!!! They are lovely and a beautiful treasure for you mom!

Mr. Black said...

What beautiful pieces of stained glass! The lady tried stain glass for a while, so she knows how much work goes into even a small work.
She can see all the pieces in the cats and knows that someone made a great design and executed it perfectly.

Love the stained glass likenesses! It is wonderful that you have them. The two cats that my family had when I was young live in my heart, but even so, I wish I had photos of them.

I Don't know any Christmas jokes about Tennessee, but I do know one about West Virginia. However, I am too virtuous to repeat it on the internet. :-) It was told to us by someone from WV.
