~ Christmas with Claire ~


I am so blessed to be a mom to two boys
my only little girl is my sweet Claire
I picked her out of a basketful of kittens almost 5 years ago at my sons baseball game.
I was in love at first sight
She is so sweet and follows me everywhere all day long.
She knows I'm her mommy ;)


The sunlight was streaming in this afternoon as I lit some candles and was reading one of my favourite books then Claire decided to join me on the comfy sofa.
I took one look at her all cozy next to me with the sunlight on her and I had to take a few photos.
Isn't she precious?!
I love her.

~ Merry Christmas friends ~

~* A wonderful Christmas gift idea is to adopt an animal at a local animal shelter 
or give a donation to The Humane Society ~*

Claire is adorable! I'm so glad that she still follows you around 5 years later. People think it's weird that my baby boy Jeffrey goes everywhere I do. I can't imagine if he didn't. Ahhh...fur babies!

Yes Claire looks adorable. Our cat "Little" , recently went to heaven. We miss her company and unfailing love.

May your Christmas be filled with laughter, love and joy.

Rachel- Your Claire is so cute. I love that she still looks like a kitten at the age of 5! What a sweet little face she has. I loved my little girl kitty, too...and she was my "girl" for 11 years before she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I still miss her...but I can smile at your Claire because I know how much joy she brings you! xo Diana

THANK YOU all so much for your sweet comments about my little Claire~ And yes she still does look like a kitten at 5 years old..and she prefers the itty bitty kitten food only (ive tried several different kinds) :) lol.
Wishing you all the a wonderful Christmas with family and friends~ xoxo Rachel

Our days would not be complete without our furbabies by our side, would they, Rachel? :) Claire is so adorable. I love it when they decide to snuggle next to you or climb into your lap. My little Toby used to try to lay across the computer keyboard as I blogged each night because he was trying to get so close to me. I loved that about him...and I miss him so much. Give your sweet little Claire a special kiss for me, will you? :)

I just discovered your lovely blog. Your kitty is the cutest little thing. Thank you for putting a word in for the Humane Society. Have been a member for many years. Unfortunately, animals are so often put on the bottom of the list.
Happy New Year,
