Photo Of The Week: Now This Is Love

Legend & Prince Charming at Create With Joy

Quote Of The Week
What greater gift than the love of a cat?
Charles Dickens

This is one of the first pictures I ever took of Legend. To this day, it remains one of my favorites.

Legend had just arrived in his new home after a long trip across the country. He was tired – he was pensive – and introductions were in order.

What better way to reassure our new kitten that everything was going to be fine than for Prince Charming to scoop him up in his arms, hold him near, and let him bask in the safety and security of a loving embrace?

A picture is worth a thousand words. For more great photos, visit:
