Maria is but one tiny life in the grand scheme of things... but she wanted me to remind everyone that her life is indeed significant... and her life is important, as is all life that exists on this miraculous planet we call earth.
Maria Tiponi (Native American meaning "CHILD OF IMPORTANCE" turned 1 week old, today!
I began tube-feeding her when she was 1 day old.
She is going to be one of those very special, one-in-a-million felines with tons of character. that's already apparent.
Check out these birthday photos taken this morning...
Hey Mama Whale... Give me five!
Maria getting exercise after her feeding and potty session... Her umbilical cord has not fallen off yet and she is still pretty unsteady walking around, but that doesn't stop her, believe me!
Maria's message to you: "Enjoy the little things in your life today... in the end, they will be the only things you truly cherish!"
Please keep sending Positive Energy Maria's way. I am doing the best I can to attend to her every need. It's a huge responsibility... She is so precious.
Compassion is the radicalism of our time. ~The Dalai Lama
