I've never thought young children and kittens were a great mix.
They are fragile and don't enjoy being roughed with and they certainly don't like being hoisted in the air while balancing on a tray. But, that's what kids like to do so I stick with my gut feeling on this. Young cats are happier and feel safer with adults and older children.
When I volunteered for our local shelter I was on a mission to find good, loving homes for all the cats. I would ask family, friends and friends of friends to look at photos and at least 'think about' adopting a beautiful cat into their home. I'm sure I was a nuisance to some but I felt the need to speak for them; get the word out that they were waiting and hoping for that second chance. I always stayed clear of placing kittens with really young children, though.
I have been enjoying all the beautiful blog posts this morning as I sit here with a sore throat and cough. I always feel I never have time for this nonsense. The birds at our property won't miss me today, though, as I left them with an abundance of food.
Our internet is being installed this morning at the coach-house. YAH! I won't have to wait and miss all the festive fun.
I put some Santa's in mason jars today and placed them in amoungst my dishes. It's fun to look inside something and see a Christmas scene.
The sun is shining, the temps are up a bit but I'm going to stay in and rest. Audrey says she'll keep me company and stay out of mischief. ('til I fall asleep)
We won't be the only ones' snuggling today.
I'm off to make some tea and add a tsp. of organic honey. That is the best thing ever for a sore throat. (Ask Dr. Oz) Stay toasty,
