Future Kittens - Easy Like Sunday

I'm going backwards in time just a little bit here, but wanted to share these "Easy Sunday" pictures of the kittens.

Here are Chloe's babies at 9 days old.


Here are Zoey's babies at 5 days old.
Now, aren't these relaxing enough to help you have an Easy Sunday.

*******************************************************************
Now for a "feel good" story that happened last night but I warn you that you may need a tissue.

Many of you may remember Cody, the boy with Down's Syndrome, that Praline befriended (read story here).   Last night was the first time that Cody and his mom, Janet, came to my house since Praline went to the Bridge.  I was showing Janet pictures of the kittens on the computer and Cody asked, "Where is Praline?"  I was caught off guard for a moment, trying to decide how to explain this to Cody without upsetting him.  His mom told him that Praline wasn't here.  He looked at me and I just said, "She's in Kitty Heaven."  His next words brought tears to my eyes.  He looked at both of us and said, "With Jesus"  His mom had to answer him because I had to turn my head so he wouldn't see me crying.  His mom answered, "Yes, with Jesus."   He then looked at both of us and in his own words said, "Paula get new kittens, right?"  That brought a smile to my face and I said yes.  Just when we think they won't understand.

Cody is a sweet, intuitive boy and his words were meant to comfort you, perhaps words sent by Angel Praline through his innocence and kind heart...We'll be thinking of you as you met your future babies tomorrow=good luck!!...hugs...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki
