Kitties, this is an old picture that mom came across yesterday. Its shows the Admiral being all imperious on Christmas day back in 2011 with other favorite brother daring to approach her majesty as she was at impawtent business. An inquiring hand from North Carolina that only shows up 3-4 times a year---even though it is other favorite brovver, could be met with lethal clawses or a nip with sharp Tortie obeying teefs.
However, once she remembered him, she was putty in his hands as he is a Cat man through and through.
You might recall this precious 3 week old baby that he rescued from the school yard several years back. Her name is Coco; and she went to a totally adoring home. Seriously, they gave her all the love any kitten could ever hope for.
