The Best

This is Cooney. She is simply the best cat. She is our outside cat. She is a wonderful mother. Not only does she feed her kittens, but any other that happen along that need feeding. I have yet to see her push a kitten away at any age. When flood waters rages last May, she stayed on our porch the entire time as if she knew she would be safe there.

She's beautiful. Reminds me of my Boo, who passed away almost a year ago. #1273603
