Awww Monday: Little Critters Need Lots of Naps

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

We have two bottle-babies right now:

The gray brother is sleeping under his brown tabby sister.


These two are running around and playing, and while their teeth are just growing in so they are still not eating solid food, they already use the litter box!

Unfortunately, they also came with ringworm, so we are back to dealing with that.  What is it with us that we always either get the very sick or the ones with ringworm?

Anyway, for those who are wondering about Dansig, he's had an up and down weekend.  Sometimes he's better, sometimes worse.  Today is the big day, when Dr. Bea will decide whether or not he needs surgery.
