Awww Monday: Last of the Babies

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.

Last time i went to the shelter, only one of our four was left, the boy with no markings at all.  He was in a cage with a new friend, playing nicely, and when he saw me he wouldn't hold still for a photo, he kept trying to climb up and get me to take him out of the cage.  Yes, i did love on him while i was there, but even so he would not hold still.

He was climbing around like a little monkey!
