This little girl loves her Daddy, but he’s not able to pick her up and cuddle her. He pets her, and she puts her paws around his wrist, as above, and holds his hand tightly to her. She’s not asleep, she’s peeking with her right eye.

Molly was an unwed pregnant drop-off at our care-giver’s place, and the 10 year old daughter was feeding her off her own plate, sneaking food out to Molly. Moms know what their kids are up to, and finally, the little girl’s mom said, “I know her name is Molly, and I know she eats pasta, but what are you going to do with her?” They tried to give her to me, but Kelly (my hubby) had been saying, “No More Cats” since back when we only had one. (Nevada)
Currently we had 3 cats, and he was still adamant. So we cooked up a plan: let the beautiful little girl bring beautiful little Molly in and put her in Kelly’s arms. “Kelly, this is Molly, and she wants to come live with you,” she rehersed till her mom nearly went mad.
I don’t need to tell you there was no giving her up after he had Molly in his arms.
Molly faithfully takes care of Kelly, and he whole-heartedly returns the love and devotion her little heart gives him.
