To My Emerald Girl - Happy 3rd Birthday!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
It all started out so innocently. Rob and I had moved into a house and I said I wanted a cat. Nakita came into our lives a little less than 3 years ago and in that time has filled our lives with laughter, love and so much more! She only weighs in at 5 pounds and has the smallest frame I have seen on a cat.

Rob was not overly excited about the proposal of bringing a cat into our home. He really had no experience with cats, and just complained about the extra fur balls that would soon start to appear, the cost of food, you know...all the complaints from a non-cat lover. Of course, once Nakita entered this household, that would soon change. Nakita has a magical way of moving herself into your heart.

I started searching the net for cat info and came across The Cat Site in August 2002. If I remember correctly, this infamous picture changed Nakita from a Russian Blue, to Nakita the Gargoyle. Many of the older members here at TCS will remember this one!



She would sit on top of my computer and squish her little head between the top of the monitor and shelf unit that sat directly above it. So once I shared this pic, Nakita was from that point on known as TCS own gargoyle.

It didn't take long for Nakita to win Rob over. Actually, it probably took all of 30 seconds. We brought her home, opened up her carrier and she climbed right up Rob's leg. But, Nakita never uses her claws so as she tried to climb up, she fell with a *thud* back down to the floor. Rob picked her up and that was the moment he turned into a cat lover. She now has him eating out of her hand:







I knew Nakita would want to go outside, especially when we go on our weekend trips to the cottage. She took to leash training like a fish to water. She now demands to be taken for a daily walk and loves every minute of it.



There are so many reasons why I love her. The way she sits with one paw up:



How she does the Queen wave from behind the glass of our front window:



Or is it her amazing eyes? As you can see, I don't call her my Emerald Girl for nothing:



But if you take a close up shot from the side, you see the mixing of blue and green within her eyes...amazing!

But I also love her since she also has some quirks. Her favourite way to drink, is out of a shot glass. But don't worry, I only place water in that glass!



Another member from TCS sent her a Doofus Dog toy, and now it's her favourite. She also loves napping beside the teddy bear that's in the background:



Her mouse takes a close second for favourite toy:



Also, when I spend too much time online, she will give me this 'look' and then will sigh and rest her head on the monitor as if to say.... Mom, I'm bored!!!



I do think that TCS was a good experience for both Nakita and I. First, I was able to interact with other cat lovers and share many pics without setting off any alarms of Crazy Cat Lady! But I think other members enjoyed watching Nakita grow up as well. Here Kim (TCS member....miss you Kim!) graphically enhanced Nakita into a Bad Girl! *lol* I absolutely love this pic and really miss Kim's presence here at TCS and her Photoshop genius!!!



No matter how you look at it, no matter the colour of the eyes, or the pattern of the fur or the tone of meow.....I love this girl.



Thank you Nakita for coming into my life. You've taken us on a wonderful ride these past years. Happy Birthday Emerald Girl......I ya!

Thanks for the compliment , but I have too much to learn when it comes to photography. Right now I just muddle my way through it and hope to get a few good pictures. It's a fun hobby though!

I currently use a Canon Powershot A80. It's a great little camera to experiment with and learn the basics of photography. I've really enjoyed using it this last year and I highly recommend any Canon camera.

I'll be upgrading this camera probably to a Canon G6 or something in the Nikon series.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes and I'll pass the compliments over to Nakita.

She is so beautiful! I always loved her in your signature.. thanks for sharing more beautiful pictures!

Happy birthday!!!

SHe really is a little thing isnt she??? My aerowyn is a tiny bit bigger than her but she is small too I love tiny cats and large cats.. but of course I love normal cats also

Hm.. mind if I ask what kind of camera you have? I have a bit of a photography fetish and would really like to save and buy a good camera, and I like the pictures your's took (though I see you did things to some of them on the computer) Hm.. probably digital eh???


Edit: *looks at above post* well I'm a doofus arent I? Suppose I should read all the posts before I post

Wow I wouldve thought it was a much more expensive camera! Those pictures are awesome. I've been looking into the Sony F828... my friend in florida has the lower version and i love how his pictures look. i figure if i'm going to get a new one I'm going to go all out.. lol but i'll look into the Canons too.. I love Nikons, Theyre awesome. I have a crappy Kodak right now and i hate it. It won't even hold the date anymore and the batteries fall out all the time. lol You do very well for not being a professional! I thought for sure you were when I saw those pictures.
