Ode To Bramble

A friend sent me some photos of Bramble today in an email titled "Bramble Through The Years" and I thought I'd share them. Bramble is a kitten I adopted during the time I volunteered at our local animal shelter. A litter of black and white kittens came in and I was looking them over. They were all very friendly. A shelter employee said that if I really wanted to save a kitten, I should skip the friendly black and whites and adopt the unsociable gray and white kitten hiding in the back of the cage. I brought him home and named him Bramble. Here he is as a youngster in June of 2004:

On the window sill in November 2004. Because he's gray and white, it's sometimes hard to tell which photos are in color. In this case, you can tell by his eyes:

And looking rather guilty on the stairs in March of 2009:
