Wordful Wednesday - Sisters

Devi ** Kali


I love this photo.


It was taken the day after Kali was spayed.

We could see in her face the pain she was experiencing,

and were thankful when the painkiller took hold.


What I love about this photo

is the tender look on Devi's face

as she gazes at her sister.


My husband said that Devi followed him around all day

when Kali was at the animal hospital.

I'm sure she wondered why her sister was away.


When we brought her home that night,

Devi watched her sister's every move with concern

making sure to do so from a distance.


The next day,

Devi ventured close

and hissed because her sister had a different scent.


As the day wore on,

Kali was accepted again

and Devi's love for her was captured here.

  2. Hello Pamela,
    I can certainly identify with what you write here. We got brother and sister kittens almost 17 years ago, and they seemed somehow to complete each other. Since Becky died from cancer 2 1/2 years ago Oliver has become a lot more clingy and desperate for hugs. It is lovely to see them so happy in each other's company, isn't it.
    Janice.
