Halo's Kitten Paddington Turns Five Months Old Today by Karen Rose Smith

Miss Paddington -- Our Christmas Gift

Paddington is five months old today! She is friendly, happy go lucky and wants to be friends with everyone, cat or human. She especially loves to play. Each morning I lay out brown wrapping paper that came packed with cat food. She romps in it, sometimes with her mom Halo joining in. Lately, she is spending a lot of time watching the birds outside the windows. When she gets bored with that, she and our two-year-old cat Zoie play hide and seek with the bedspread hem (when Zoie isn't napping!).

Zoie and Paddy share a special moment.

Paddy and Halo share a hug.

Halo is settling into our home after six months as if she finally realizes she belongs here. She seems to be able to accept affection more easily and purrs when we pet her. She and Paddington still have a tight bond. They snuggle and sleep together. But Paddington is spending more time apart from her mom, too. Paddy is our early Christmas gift that we'll cherish for years to come.

Karen, she just looks like a very loving kitty. She has grown so quickly. Has she noticed any of your decorations? I had a cat when I first got married that loved to knock my balls off the tree.

Happy five months, Miss Paddington.

I love that face :-)

I'm so glad that Zoie is making friends! A true gift indeed.

Katrina--I'm really surprised the Christmas decoratiins don't attract her. She even stays away from the wrapping paper! She and Halo play with their brown paper and Paddy plays with Zoie. That seems to keep them content.
