A Furry Anniversary

Today marks the 8th anniversary of getting a furry little kitty cat as a Christmas gift from one of my best friends. He went from this:
to this:

All in a matter of 8 years!!! How on earth did I ever live without him in my life??? I just don't know! Mittens has been such a joy to me, and has been here for me the entire time I've had to quit my job. He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me angry, but I'm sure if I had a human child, I'd feel all those emotions, too. I've told him all day today that it's been 8 years since I've been his Mommy, but of course, I don't think it means anything to him. It was just an ordinary day! He did, however, curl up under the blanket with me on my bed to take a nap. We haven't done that in so long (he's usually sleeping in his huge box I can't get rid of), so it was rather nice! I am really hoping to have my little man, as I like to call him, for at least another 8 years!!

Mittens is the perfect name for your companion. I love cats: they are so loving and yet so independent.

Give Mittens a scratch behind his ears and under his chin for me.

Oh my goodness!!! She is so beautiful!! I'm not a big cat lover although given my "boys" behavior, maybe I should think about switching! :)She is absolutely beautiful! Give her a snug from "Auntie Annette!"
