Awww Monday: Recipe for Happy 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!

We had a CATastrophe, or nearly.  We ran out of kitten food for the fosters, and they were reduced to eating the regular cat food for a couple of hours until i could go to the shelter to get more.



Empty Bowl = Sad Kitten



Full Bowl = Happy Kittens!

  2. Catastrophe. Lol. Our grandkitten, Missy, wants to eat with the big cats. She's turning up her nose at the kitten chow. I'm not worried about it. She'll eat when she's hungry.
