"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary
than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan."

Irving Townsend, Separate Lifetimes. "The Once Again Prince"

Angel and Luci were strays I "stole" from their mom.  Alchy snuck out the door one day and as I was looking for him I found a momma cat and her 3 kittens hiding in the bushes.  I tried to catch the momma cat but she was too streetwise.  She would stretch her paw out and knock the food out of my hand to eat it.  I tossed some of the food towards her and away from the kittens and took her kittens and put them in the house.  That night momma cat jumped up on the window ledge on the outside of the house and cried out for her kittens.  Then she left and I never saw her again.   I found a home for one of the kittens and kept the other two - Angel and Luci.  Angel was very shy unless it was just me home.  She was learning to trust Karl and didn't run away from him.  She loved her food and was the first one to tell me when they were out.  She also "prayed."  She would lie on furniture with her shoulders over the edge of it and sticks her front legs out and puts her paws together and moves them up and down.  It made her special and fit her name.  Angel had been eating a raw diet since she was 9 years old. We were working on getting her hyperthyroid issue under control but then discovered that she had a tumor in her jaw.  It's amazing how much you miss them when they are gone - even the scaredy cats.

Angel is pretty young in both of these. 
The position in the right is what she would assume for "praying" but with both front legs out and then moving up and down.
