Bella's Best Friend
Vanessa Pitcher's dog Bella with Caillou (Winterton)
Taking a load of warm towels from the dryer, I offered one to our (rescued) kitten, Jojo, by placing it on the daybed in the kitchen. She cuddled in and started biting the corner. I turned my head for a moment and it was as if the heat from the towel knocked her out. She slept for an hour in this relaxed pose.
