My husband and I don't have or want real children, we're all about our lilac-point Siamese baby (we think he has a little ragdoll in him also). We lucked into this amazing little guy when my husband's co-worker got him and another kitten and could only keep one. He was 6 or 7 weeks old when we took him home and for about 2 months he slept by my head, in my hair, nursing and chewing on my ear lobes. Now Simon is about 9 months old and 8 pounds. The endless lovin's, hugs, kisses, toys, etc. he grew up with has formed him into the sweetest, most loving cat you'll meet!!
