Photo Hunt - Family

Today's Photo Hunt Theme is Family. I have been with my Mom Paula for almost 13 years and we have survived a divorce, a Ph.D., four moves, the loss of a job and illnesses for both of us and we are still here to tell the story. I love my Mom and my Mom loves me! Isn't that the way it is supposed to be?


Praline and Mom



Praline and fuzzy family (this is before Cassidy came along)

Today, Mom's chickens play the tiggers in college football (South Carolina Gamecocks vs. the LSU Tigers). The game is nationally televised on ESPN at 8:00 PM EST. Mom slept most of the day on Friday and said she would rest all day today so she could go to the game (she said the tickets were too expensive to not go). I am trying to convince her that she can just stay home and sleep with me and watch it on TV.

Sleeping with the Gamecocks!

Your Mom is so lucky to have you, Praline! We cats are very supportive when our family need us the most. It helps them take their minds off their troubles when they feed us, brush us, play with us... We really do quite a lot to keep them healthy and happy.
