Awww Monday: Brother From Another Mother


Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee,  of Comedy Plus.  All of us could use a little Awww to start the work week, so find a cute picture and link up!

Applebloom loves her big brother, The Lorax.

Snuggle kitten love.
 

The Lorax has his surgery scheduled for July 9.  They've decided he's old enough, even if it turns out he doesn't weigh quite the four pounds yet.  He probably does, but if he's an ounce shy, so what.
