Travel Theme: Spooky

I didn’t have to travel  to find my spookiest picture.  Princess Esmerelda, my black cat, whose green eyes glow in the dark, is my spooky friend.

My spooky friend…

Princess Esmerelda was adopted by my youngest daughter and appropriately was discovered on Halloween – mewing pitifully under a car parked on Tindal Street in Greenville, South Carolina.  She lived with my daughter for several years, then moved home with my daughter (spending the entire 9 hour trip crouched under the driver’s seat of the car)

She lives in our unfinished basement most of the time, spending a lot of time in the crawl space under the addition to our house.  I have never seen her asleep.  She will sit on my lap briefly, clawing and kneading me the entire time, then will suddenly jump to the floor and run to the basement.

Once in a great while she will enter the living room and seems to enjoy the Wii Fit Board.   Most of my friends have never seen her.   They look at the cat dish in the corner of the kitchen and say, “Do you REALLY have a cat?”   I have to show them pictures.

    I don’t know how anyone can tell about the green eyes. They’ve taken on a ‘take me to your leader’ glow. maybe that’s why your friends never see her.

    “Do you really have a cat?” That cracked me up–thanks!!!


  11. We have a cat who always disappears into the crawl spaces of our house when strangers arrive. We call him the gray ghost. More spooked than spooky. Your cat fits the holiday perfectly!
