And, oh joy! Whom do you think we discovered playing here too? A little lost kitten who found plenty of companionship in these two little girls. We thought we were his new family, but alas, the family down the drive decided to adopt him. Maybe their dogs don't harass him so much, although we were quite amused at the way this kitten seemed to tame our big, rambunctious Doberman. Leroy would run at him and rudely shove him with his nose, expecting the kitty to react the way our cats do ~ hissing, swatting, and turning tail ~ you know, good fun for a dog. This tiny cat just purred and snaked himself around his legs. Leroy, dumbfounded, just gave up.
"Someone" does keep asking me where the little black and white kitty is. Every day. They were solid friends for a while, sitting under the picnic table for over an hour happily snuggling and purring. I could hear Rae quietly chattering to him about everything she knew.
