Feline Friday: Little Ole Me?

Feline Friday was created by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.  It's hosted this week by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Sandee's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!
Some of the shelter kittens get a little mischievous.  Anything they can reach through the bars of the kitten cage is fair game and will be chewed within an inch of its existence by some kittens.


Anything is fair game, including the paperwork on top of the cage.

Someone left a note wanting to know where Sasha's paperwork is; i'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count.


Who, me?  Eat my paperwork?  Sweet little me wouldn't do that!
