Awww Monday: Concept of Ownership

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!

Kittens are too cute to get fussed at much.

What do you mean, "your blanket"!?!

In other news, it's Labor Day here, and i am laboring for Ms. S, my Monday lady, but Sweetie is not laboring, and Little Girl has the day off of school.  Happy Labor Day to all who celebrate now, and for those of you who celebrated it back in May, you may go about your regularly scheduled day.

The yearly sanity retreat i need is so close i can almost taste it.  My friend FiveCat, and her husband, Mr. FiveCat, have driven in so they can spend a couple of days exploring NOLA and the swamps.  Last night, i fed them some red beans and rice, and we sat and had a good gabfest.
