My husband and I recently lost our two senior kitties, ages 18.5 and 17.5, within five days of each other. They had been my faithful companions since their kittenhood. Our home was really empty without a kitty to come home to, so once we were past the initial stages of grief, we started thinking about expanding our family. We arrived at NEAS and went straight to the kitten room and instantly fell in love with Olive. She is the light of our lives – she loves to play with all kinds of toys, and she loves to snuggle, especially during Patriots games. In this photo, she couldn’t quite stay awake for the whole game, so she cuddled up on my husband’s ankles for a nap. Thanks to Olive, it will be a merry Christmas in our house.
