    Thank You Paris and John for giving us the time. I sent the times to my son so the triplets could watch the Kitty & Puppy Bowls. They just adopted another cat from the shelter her name is Pixie! She is so cute. Bella (there other cat) wasn’t sure she wanted a sister but they are now the best of buds. They sleep together and play.

    • Aww…I just love to hear those happy stories!! What a lucky kitty Pixie is (I love that name!) I think cats love companionship; our four really keep each other company 🙂 Paris
