Daisy Faye Buchanan

Posted by Felicia on 10:08 AM
Meet the newest four-legged resident of our happy abode, Daisy Faye Buchanan. Or Daisy if you will or as I like to call her Tenacious D. She is so named for the character Daisy Faye Buchanan in the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. You probably remember it from like the 8th grade. There is a passage in the book that goes like this. "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made. . . . " This is our cat. She smashes things up in her kitten-like enthusiasm and I am left to clean it up. And I must give credit for the name to a dear, sweet person whom I know who shall remain nameless, but he knows who he is. In any case, the name fit perfectly, and Colin loves it.
She is so soft and not yet very snuggly preferring to romp and chase red laser lights up and down the walls, but at night you can find her very close to someone's head as this is her preferred sleeping spot.
Needless to say, my son is in love with her, and if nothing else it does the heart good to see a boy so full of compassion for another living creature. There is hope in this world when compassion lives on in the heart of little boys with kitties named Daisy.
