First, some sad news.  Kallie, big sister to Jeter Harris and Mickey Mantle, has gone to the Bridge.  Please visit them and give them some comfort.

I timed this limerick just right, because I got to snag this picture of Donny raising his paw for the Kidney Foundation of Canada.  This group helped Donny's Mom with her kidney transplant.  Donny is Marie's and Casey's brother.  He and Marie were adopted together two years ago from a rescue group.  It is very likely that Donny and Marie and littermates.  Donny loves to protect the house from any insects who invade.  He also likes to play with anything at all that has feathers on it.  Donny and Marie were adopted as company for Casey, who was really missing her big sister, Missy, who had gone to the Bridge.  Casey wasn't to thrilled with the two three-month old kittens at first, especially as they considered her tail to be the best toy ever.  They all get along pretty well now, even though Donny still considers Casey's tail to be a wonderful toy.  Donny loves his Mom best.  Whenever she sits at the computer, he will come up to her and give a mournful cry until she stops what she is doing to give him pets and scritches.  Donny is a little jealous of his Mom.  If he sees another kitty getting a lot of attention from her, he will go over and get some of the attention for himself.  Donny and Marie love to wrestle with each other.  Casey is content to sit and watch.

                                   There is a young Whitester cat named Donny,
                                   Who will pounce a feather with a "Hey, nonny-nonny!"
                                            He'll pounce Casey's tail,
                                            At which she will rail.
                                  Then he'll wrestle Marie, will young Whitester Donny.

We're glad you let us know about Kallie, even though we've never met the family before. We stopped by their sites to say hello because we know how hard it is to lose a sister.
