Feline Friday: Am not! Are, too!

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.  
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!
As the foster kittens have grown bigger (waiting for the all clear on the ringworm so they can be adopted out, soon, i hope), they are having a bit more trouble sharing a food bowl.


"You're hogging!" "No, you are!"
Sometimes the little girl, at the bottom, will lie in the bowl to make sure she gets her share!
