Quote of the Day

March 28, is Respect Your Cat Day

March 28, is Respect Your Cat Day.  I've always been a Dog Lover, but one of my daughter's Cat's ended up at my house to have her kittens.  This particular cat, Creature, had had issues with getting along with my daughter's Dog and other Cat.  I had never spent any time with her, and Brie waited until she was in Labor before bringing Creature to my house, so we didn't get a warming up period together.  Creature immediately accepted me, and allowed me to help her with her babies. I was amazed at how great a Mother she was, and this was one of my favorite pictures that I took of her giving love to one of her kittens, named "Snow Creature".
