Thanks for the comment about my babies and you are correct, L.S. is a handful thus his name. The other two are real laid back but L.S. gets into everything and always wants some kind of attention. Thanks for adding me as a friend, the way I have been feeling of late I need all the support I can get.
Thank you so much for the things you said on my blog "my depression". It is really nice to know that I am not alone out there. I don't feel this way very often, I think I am getting overwhelmed with my health issues and the chronic pain is making my depression worse.
I have added you as a friend I hope that you can return the favor.
Love your cats Alcoa is beautiful, and your new babies are precious.
