A pinch of nostalgia
Nostalgia hits you in mysterious ways, sometimes completely unexpected. It can be triggered by a smell, by a thought, by a neglected souvenir or sometimes, by some forgotten pictures in your hard drive. 


![_MG_6865.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/fotostef/bHFyaL4Z-_MG_6865.jpg)

And those sketchy shots assembled piece by piece a nostalgic image that I hadn't even realized it's existence.  

![_MG_6871.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/fotostef/kTnXufAa-_MG_6871.jpg)

Those furry parts belong to Kiko. One of the 3 cats that was left behind after our recent move. It was a difficult decision but after a lot of consideration we concluded that it was in their best interest to remain to the village they grow up and knew as their only world.  

![_MG_6879.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/fotostef/nqwSbzpI-_MG_6879.jpg)

After all it wasn't a final separation. We now live a 10' drive away and very often I stop by, to feed and play with them. 

![_MG_6885.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/fotostef/IrW2KfZe-_MG_6885.jpg)

Nevertheless when I stumbled upon those photos a pinch of nostalgia sneaked into my heart. And what i did, is the only think I know that can send it away. Edit (according to my mood), write (my thoughts) and share with all of you!

![_MG_6897.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/fotostef/kN8DnaNO-_MG_6897.jpg)

And if that doesn't work, I can still spend some time with them, tomorrow morning :)

Awww... *kitty nose*... that caught my eye!
I like to try to rub kitty noses - not all allow me, some like it (as did my cat that I had for 20 years...), some shy away...

My fav is the second, we get to see a hint of Kiko's face, while the nose and mouth are the highlights! :)

Thank you @ackhoo for stopping by!
I think if you try that to Kiko's nose you'll end up slightly bitten :)

First, great photos, love the close ups. Second, that would be a hard choice to make not to have them with you all the time. Glad you can still go see them!

Yes it was a hard choice but that's ok, I am convinced that it is for the best.
And I stopped by to see them in the morning, too :)
