Aby-a-Day – July 12: Surrogate mother (Friday Flashback)

Jacoby has always let Tessie mother him.

She is our only cat who’s had kittens of her own, so maybe it’s only natural.

When he first came to live with us, he’d follow Tessie around all the time.

She took good care of him when he was a kitten.

You guys are awesome!
