Awww Monday: Um, Mom!

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus.  We could all use a little more cute to start our week, so post a picture that makes everyone say, "Awww!" and link up!

Ladios says, "Uh, mom, look down!"

Mom!  Mom!  Look down!

See!  We're almost out of food!


They may be kittens, but they agree with Snoopy -- one of the saddest sights in the world is an empty, or in this case almost empty, food bowl!
