My Flame

Today's tribute is to my big bro, Flame, who had to give up only child status when I came along.

Thanks for sitting still while I take photos of you!
Yep, I do take some awesome photos now that I'm getting more practice! This is one of my masterpieces.
Thanks for cleaning yourself regularly and setting a good example for your lil sis... (And for shedding lots of hair so Pappa gets on your case instead of mine.)
Thanks for listening (sometimes) when I order you around to get off the chair or out of the bedroom or out of the closet - places you spend 80 percent of your time even though you're not allowed there. And thanks for not chasing my birdy Tweety (or me when I wear butterfly wings).
Thanks for being willing to give kisses, even though Mommy and Pappa say it's not allowed.
And now we even have skateboarding in common! Thanks for skateboarding with me.

Yep, I got the best cat bro in the world!

Yes, that is one great cat brother!
We had a cat when our twins were small that would let our toddlers try to ride him. Very patient cat.

I love the skateboard picture. My daughter keeps saying she wants a skateboard, but we haven't gotten one yet.

big bros are the best! Even when they are cats in disguise.

Those wings are cute! The pattern on them looks just like the pattern on Charlotte's pink pair.

It is hard to believe she is 2 already. And I must confess it took me a moment longer than it should have to realize you were talking about a cat and not some secret older brother that you had never written about on this blog! :)

Flame is a wonderful kitty like out Orange Kitty.

Check out those pink paws...
only indoor cats have paws that pink.

Oh and the skateboarding kitty is a hoot... how did he cooperate so willingly? Or did you drug Flame with Benedryl?

Miss Esmé,
I love your orange wings and you on the skateboard too.

I couldn't believe Esme on the skateboard (a year ago?) and Flame can skateboard too??? I can't even do that!
