Sweet Kitty Love

Growing up I spent countless hours cuddling with my kitties. They were such a huge part of my life growing up. Now that we have our own cats here it brings back so many fond memories. I wasn't sure if the kids would be the same as I was as a kid or if the fascination would die away after the kittens turned into cats. So far the kids have been very much like their momma. Both kids wake up and change into "kitty clothes" every morning so they can see the cats right away. The let them outside and play with them until it is time for breakfast. Then they do chores and we start school. As soon as Dominic is done he is right back outside loving on the cats. Poor Krypto has started to find hiding places to escape from the endless "love" that Dominic gives out. Almost every spare moment we are home the kids are playing with the cats. They sure do love them. The best part is that Isabella has stopped having allergic reactions to them. She seems to have developed an immunity to our cats within a few months time. What a blessing. We still continue to be very rigid about hand washing and only wearing "kitty clothes" so that we keep the cat hair out of the main house but so far things have gone better than expected. I am not too fond of the cat smell in the garage but knowing how much my kids love their cats makes the stink a bit more bearable. Besides in a month or two they will be mostly outdoor cats and the garage will smell better......right?? 8.19.10
