So - we got a cat at Christmas this year.
Correction: Avery got a cat at Christmas this year.
And Charlie loves to torture it.
The first week we had her, I caught Charlie "hugging" her tightly around her tiny neck at least twice.
Thankfully, after only a few months of life with Charlie, Miss Kitty has definitely become smarter and more protective of her nine lives.
This picture, taken in January, may be the last one I'll ever see of Charlie holding Kitty. Because now, as soon as he comes near her she takes off in a full sprint.
And I can't say I blame her.
