Baby Cat (Not to Be Confused With a Kitten!)

So these are not the best pictures in the world, but they show you just how good, Twittums, our cat is. He has always put up with both of my kids (as if he ever had any say in the matter!) and he is even related to us. How you ask? His mother is the daughter of my husband's, uncle's, cat! So that makes him a!!! Anyhow, he has always let Katie and Eric torture...I mean play with him, and he has never bitten or scratched them...never even offered to. As you can see in the picture above, Katie is giving him his bottle. She makes him be her "baby" on a regular basis, and he is pretty good at playing along. Twit's bottles vary, but it looks like today's bottle is my old coffee cup with some milk in it. Sometimes Katie spoon feeds him his canned food too. My daughter cracks me up!!!
Once he has had his bottle, Katie must burp him (doesn't he look enthused?)...
...and then he gets placed in his crib...
...or in his!!
Right about now, Twit is wishing that the cougar paw on the wall behind him would become animated and take a big swipe at Katie!
Don't you just love my daughter's slippers? She does not get her fashion sense from me....I think that she gets it from Auntie Amber...teeheehee!!!
The next few days are going to be pretty awful, with a test tomorrow and Monday, a project due on Friday, and and two 10 page papers due on Tuesday. Can you guess what I will be doing ALL weekend??? The kids are telling me that I have to take them riding on Friday, because they only have a 1/2 day of school...grrr...Friday is supposed to be MY day!!!!

Good luck on your tests!!

I'm not a cat person(my kids were allergic to them) but that has to be one of the cutest cats I've ever seen. I think he actually looks like he's enjoying himself. After all what else does he have to do all day --- sleep in a sunny window dreaming about birds.

That cat is adorable! He looks like he's putting up with her, but at the same time looks like he's enjoying the attention too....He's lucky to be so loved.

Oh my goodness! I'm just grinning from ear-to-ear!

Twit is one generous, patient, loving and beautiful kitty (cousin)!
You can just see the love both Katie and Twit have for each other.

They remind me of my Jenna and her kitty Javalina.
That photo of Katie 'burping' Twit is so darn cute! I can almost hear a little kitty burpo popping out! lol!!!

And do you know what else I just have to tell you?
I don't know why I never realized or noticed this before. But your logo photo at the top with the 'Don't be Shy' words in it....well I just now realized that the horse, who looks so uncannily like handsome BoBo, is waiting at the door to go inside....! Duh! Not sure why I didn't get that until now.

But I just wanted you to know that I think that's the cutest photo with your comment about not being shy and just 'come on in'. :)
