I believe that happy, little face speaks for itself. Joey, my first-born grandchild spent the night with his Mimi on the night that his mommy and daddy were at the hospital because they were about to become parents once again.
Joey, has cradled in his arms my first kitty, Aurora Katrina. A sweet, precious girl who was tossed out of a moving car in farm country - flung by her leg. Found bawling as loud as she could on the front lawn of a farmhouse in the pouring rain, she made it known that she felt she was worthy of a rescue. And, rescued she was, right into my arms.
Joey, age 12It was Joey who taught me that being a grandmother was light-years ahead of being a mother and Aurora Katrina who taught me that kittens are loving, funny, affectionate and cuddly members of your family.
My first son, Dave, with his first son, Daniel holding Rosemary and Zoey (Zoey has since moved in with my son Jeff and his family). Daniel from the moment he first spied one of my kittens fell head over heels in love and he let the world know it, too. The conversation from the moment he came down for breakfast until he went up to bed for the night was the kittens in my house. Toys, kisses, petting them, carrying them around - with Daniel around my home there was no way I was going to have a kitten that didn't feel loved.
Daniel, age 10Thanks, Jan, (Jan's Funny Farm) for this exercise in finding pictures of animals and children. Even the big children like my grown son, Dave, has brought back so many good memories for me and allowed me to see those precious kittens that are now grown cats that rule my home like true felines of leisure.

PeeEss: Digby is feeling a teeny, tiny bit better today. Miracles do happen - just ask our dear Maxdog in South Africa. When word gets out that one of our kind needs us we are there encircling them in prayer, purrs and paws. Keep up the good work!
