Jacoby and I went to Boston Common this past weekend. It just so happened to be Boston Pride Weekend, and there were quite a lot of people in the park enjoying one of the first really nice days of the year.
Jake and I met this little girl, who was adorable, and who loved kitties.
She found a long, shiny metallic magenta streamer, likely an escapee from the parade, and asked if she could play with Jacoby with it.
It was super cute the way she danced around him with the streamer. He was too busy looking at and smelling all the things, but he still seemed to appreciate her attention.
I am always blown away by how good Jake is with little kids.
He just seems to get children. I don’t know if it’s because they’re small, or he somehow understands that they’re “kittens,” but he’s always especially gentle with them and never seems to mind if they make sudden movements or don’t pet him exactly right. Considering apart from our outings he isn’t around children a lot, it’s incredible.
I think they were both a little sad when the little girl had to say goodbye.
