Oooo, not nice to bite Mom - even if it's an "affectionate" love bite!! :) (I have a Siamese who does that - thankfully, not on my neck, tho! LOL!) Another excellent capture, Kathy - I say it all the time but it bears repeating - you seem to be really "there" at just the right moment to capture some incredible photos...well done, Ms. K! #9971289

This little one kept biting Mom's head and she was very patient BUT he got one swift bite and that was it. She is a good Mother.
