Petting Charlie

Kiernan was most anxious that I would post pictures of him petting Charlie. Charlie isn't fond of most everyone and trust is hard earned. He was rescued from the wheel well of a truck, covered in grease and half starved. He may be little but he doesn't forget.

Kiernan always asks me if I've shared these pictures. He's very proud to be the only child that Charlie has presented himself to. That goes for adults too actually. I'd love to have one of those affectionate cats that everyone seems to have, but we don't. Charlie is a calicivirus carrier which means we can have no more cats. He seems to know this and bosses the dogs.



With apologies, this post is for Kiernan - he's so proud to be the only one to win over a scaredy cat.

Kiernan must be an especially gentle soul: cats know :).

He is very right to be proud that Charlie likes him. Tis an extremely special thing. :-)

I've found that cats are very good judges of character. So that must mean that Kiernan is a character? :^)

You dont have to appologize for that! That is so neat that he can connect with Charlie. Maybe he will grow up to be a vetranarian :)

One of the best things you can pass on to kids is a love of animals. Kiernan seems to have learned this lesson well already. Maybe Charlie was his teacher.

Yeah, no apologies needed for photos of kids and animals! I've only heard the name Kiernan once before, and it belongs to a girl!

What a beautiful cat. He reminds me of my brother's cat, Lyle - appearance, your description of temperent, and you really knew you were special when 'lylie' allowed you to know him. Good job!
