I have always hated how some people treat their pets like one of their kids. For the record, I am eating my words. This cat is a large part of our family. She has a personality and possesses silly quirks like the rest of us. At night, she finds a “baby” aka: any small furry stuffed animal and carries it around in her mouth. We always know when she has a baby because she walks around meowing as loud as she can. Although this usually happens in the wee hours of the morning, tonight she carried her baby to Cam’s backpack and nestled right in early enough to snap a photo of her mothering instinct in action.
