My son and his cat are practically inseparable and I'm always taking pictures of them. This morning my son woke up and Tigger immediately got in the bed to snuggle. The sun was hitting them just right and I couldn't resist taking this picture!

I inherited Friskie Fuzziebutt's pregnant mother, Iggie Moe, when my parents passed away 18 hours apart. Iggie Moe was obviously pregnant and my parents took Iggie Moe and her sister in as strays. Friskie Fuzziebutt meows funny, like she calls me ma-ma and my husband da-da! She's a snuggler!
