Daily Dose of Cute

In celebration of Matilda's life of undiluted sweetness — and the love she had for her furry siblings, and that they had for her — here are pix of Tils with all the other furry residents of Shakes Manor. ♥

It looks like Tils and Zelly might be facing off in that last picture, but they weren't. They were snuggled up, just gazing at one another.

Zelda doesn't like anyone — not people nor beast — encroaching on her space while she's curled up. She'll happily curl up next to you, but if anyone sits too close while she's resting, she grumbles and moves. The exception was Matilda. Not only would Zelda tolerate Tilsy snuggling up in her space, but she let Matilda walk on top of her. Special dispensation for Tilsy, who deserved nothing less.

As always, please feel welcome and encouraged to share pix of the fuzzy, feathered, or scaled members of your family in comments.
