Once Upon A Time...

Once upon a time there was a much beloved fairy princess who crossed the rainbow bridge:

Her family loved her and missed her very much, and the castle seemed so empty. So they searched for someone new to fill the void:

She was precious. She slept in their laps:

and on their shoes:

and their clothes:

and she was also deeply loved by everyone but the queen of the castle:

...she was certain it was all a hoax, and that the new fairy princess was actually possessed by demons. Demons that would cause her to eat the couch:

and lick the clean dishes in the dishwasher:

and all sorts of other perfidicious behavior. But when confronted with the accusations, the fairy princess merely smiled:

And reminded the guardians of the castle that she had vanquished many enemies.

The evil bunny slipper:

The wicked blue bug:

The deplorable toilet paper roll:

How could she possibly be anything more than a sweet girl? All this defending of herself was exhausting, so she took her feminine, charming self and had a nap:

And they lived happily every after.

Except for the queen.

Marianne, you should be a photojournalist. Truly! You have such a gift for weaving a story out of pictures.

Dakota is too cute for words.

Awwww, the Queen looks highly irritated. *G*
I hope you're having a nice day!

I loved your story. Loved the pictures. It was really sweet and caring. I still miss Bailey.

I'm guessing the Queen is a bit sleep-deprived these days. I know our cats have been tense for months.

Great picture.

Every time I think about finding Indy a new home, she does something cute and I change my mind.
