Baby Audrey and her mom, Annie.
I came across this photo today and wanted to share it with you.
This was taken almost 4 years ago.
This photo shows you just why I decided, when it was time to adopt out the kittens that we fostered for our local animal shelter, to keep Audrey and Annie together. Once the kittens had reached the age that they could leave their mom we had made the decision to keep Annie as she had been through enough in her 1 1/2 years.
I struggled with adopting out Audrey as I had witnessed daily the attachment she had with her mother. I, too, had fallen in love. The other two kittens, Bree & Nigel, did not have this need by the time they reached 2 1/2 months.

So, after Nigel (now Kitt) and Bree (now Ruby)) went to their new homes and even though we had four cats already in our home, we filled out adoption papers for these two monkeys.
One decision I will never regret.
They are both an absolute delight to share our lives with.
Hope you all had a Happy Father's Day.
Let the summer begin.
