Furry four legged friends

I am definitely a cat lover. 
I begged my parents to let me have a kitten when I was little, they finally gave in after much persuasion and  a little black and white fur ball was brought into our home. I called him soggy (proper name Tom kitten)

He lived to the grand old age of 16 when, he had to be put to sleep. The most horrible decision I have ever had to make, but the vet said it would be kinder as he was so so ill. My whole family was distraught  and it took a long time to grieve. My dear old friend now has a final resting place underneath a nice tree at my parents house.

A while later we got a new kitten, who I named Archie. He is a Maine coon cross and he is not even 6 months old yet. Look how ma-hu-sive he is! Tiny kitten to hefer in no time at all!

 Little kitten.....
massive cat not even 6 months old!!
Archie lives with my parents (I live about ten mins away from them with my fiance) and I swear he gets bigger every time I see him. Pets can bring such joy into our lives and become part of the family. Do you have any pets?
