Awww Monday: Longing for Home

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!

At the shelter, a small name collar around a kitten's neck means it's been adopted, but has to wait for its surgery before it can go to its new home.

When will they come take me home?

They came the next morning!
