    Pretty soon I'll see them in doll clothes!! We do give them their *me* time, but my 4 year old cannot get enough. Is there such a thing as too much handling? They seem quite happy? No rough play of course.

    its cool when there full grown and follow you around the yard like lost puppies, we have many that love to hope up on your lap when sitting outside on the lawn chair. The come up and roost on your leg like a roost.

    its just awesome.

    And to think so many in there busy lifes never get to have an experience like this...

    This is my daughters cat who has serious identity issues. His best friend is the ferret, and now he is good friends with my itty-bitties! I guess since he is only 8 months old and already went threw most of his 9 lives, that makes him very, um, special. [​IMG]
