Feline Friday: Paternal Instincts

Moose no longer has the equipment to become a daddy, but nevertheless he's learning to be one with the kittens around. Or maybe it's fraternal and he's just being a good big brother?

Of course, the kittens don't give him much choice, sometimes. Sassy especially likes to curl up with Moose where ever he's napping. This leads to Moose grooming whichever kitten has encroached on his space-- or sometimes wrestling with her-- and then when both are bored with those activities, napping together. He also joins in on galloping around the house with Sassy & Dot in the evenings. I guess we should have gotten him kittens a long time ago!
