This picture makes me happy, but sad too. How must it feel to a momma cat to feel so close to her kitten, then have it wrenched away from her to be adopted away. That is where my heart goes every time I see a picture like this.
(KO) "Pick me up, Mama. I got the Big Lonesomes. I need cuddles. And perhaps some crunchies". I'm a sucker for this stuff. My two cats play me daily to get their way. And I fall for it every time. This kitten would own me.
