Awww Monday: Up to Your Eyeballs in Kittens

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!

Our cat rescue group is full:

I'm gonna hide up here and "git" my sister when she's under me!

Hammocks are our thing!

Comfy!

How full?  A note from Ms. Cathy:

*We have 101 cats in foster care, 99 are kittens.  *NO MORE*
Plus 80 here at the shelter, and 13 at the pet store adoption centers
That's 194 Total!  OMG! OMG! OMG!
