Can there be any more reassuring companion than our 4-legged family members?

So many thoughts and memories as I sit here and recall the mayhem and magic of the 4 legged and furry friends whose company stretch back to my childhood, into parenting years to now as I live comfortably with my kitty.

One rather difficult Christmas, a Christmas that followed a particularly difficult year financially for my parents, our Christmas tree was rather devoid of the usual pile of Christmas presents. My parents had warned us that this year the presents would be sacrificed to enable us to enjoy the usual Christmas feast that graced our kitchen table each year.

My little heart couldn't bear the thought of everyone not receiving a gift. With 7 siblings and mum and dad, I had to work out a way to make sure that didn't happen.
