We Are Family


Make no mistake about it - I am fiercely protective of my family. That goes for Sunshine the Cat, as well as Molly. That goes for my Mommys, as well as my Aunts and Cousins. Why? Because we are family and that is what we do.

What does FAMILY mean to you? Yes, it means security. It means a regular meal and fresh water. It means a place to sleep. A lot of time it means having someone to cuddle with and give you lots of attention (it sure does in my family).

To pets in shelters or (shudder) wandering the streets looking for a home, F-A-M-I-L-Y is a dream, an ideal. Something they know they want even if they have seldom had one.

To me FAMILY is everything. My family is the reason I get up in the morning. I cannot imagine a single day without each and every one of my family members and I hope I never have to. I know they have my back at ALL TIMES and I have theirs.

Princess Leah JUST reminded me to include FURiend/Friends in my definition of FAMILY. She is so very very right. My FURiends are indeed my family and I will ferociously defend them as well.
