I used to hate cats. I was very allergic to cats. I got my first cat (in my adult life) for Mother's Day 2 years ago. Alex. He's awesome.

I got another kitten last summer to keep him company. Courage. She's awesome.

This orange cat started showing up at our house last year. An orange tabby boy. We named him Leo. He was very shy and would run away..until the kids charmed him. Gradually he became our cat and now he's in at night and to eat and whenever he wants to come in. He was very polite about it and didn't come in until he asked.

All three of our cats are really great, people-loving, kid-loving cats. They have been through a lot playing with a 4 and 5 year old and still they choose the kids to sleep with or talk to (yes our cats talk too! Move over Martha)

Did you get over being allergic to them or are you taking something? I'm horribly allergic to cats. Cute pix! Your kids are always so cute.
