a Girl and a Kitty

Yesterday,
a little girl I know discovered a wonderful thing;
a fuzzy, friendly, orange ball of fluffiness.


Who needs a baby doll when you've got one of these?


Our little Squirrely cat has been waiting all of his life
for a little girl like this one...


I know it looks sort of painful,
but trust me on this one.

He's eating it up.


Sometimes I wonder if God didn't create happy
orange kitties just for the sake of little girls.

There's something about a teddy bear that 
purrs back at you.

They helped make my girlhood a happy thing,
and I think my niece would agree -
they're pretty amazingly wonderful.


Even if you're just five years old,
there's a little mother in you.


And every once in awhile,
you just need something cuddly to lug around.
Something that loves you back.

Something that's not too breakable. 


That's why I think little girls and orange kitties are
a match made in heaven.

When God made the world;
He thought of everything.

This is so sweet. And, you're right Kate, girls do want to be mama's. You don't need to tell them, it just comes. I have loved all the orange kitties in my life, especially the one who would let my 2 year old cousin lug him around. :)

Aww. That is so cute! We never had a cat tame enough to be carried around like that, so instead we have an orange-ish dog that caries the kids around. Similar warm fuzzy effect for the kids I think. Thanks for sharing these sweet pictures with us.
