It's all in the family ...

I don't need to look back into my family's history very far to see the reason why I love animals, most especially cats, so very much!  For as long as I can remember, I have been around them. My father tells me that his mother, my nana Cora, used to take in every single stray dog and/or cat in the neighborhood ... (Gee, who does THAT remind you all of?) LOL!

Growing up, I remember my nana had a couple of dogs and two beautiful parakeets, Peppy and Shawn ~ all were rescues except for her white minature poodle, Suzie who used to love to hike a ball between her legs while playing football. My parents also had several dogs and a couple of cats as well and my brother has always and still does love our furr babies ...

As always, thanks so much for letting me share my friends!  HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!!!
