Let’s start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read, you begin with A-B-C

This chorus of kittens came to us feeling scared and timid. While in foster care, they have come into their own, and have begun accepting love and snuggles. Their purrs are music to our ears!
Do, a deer, a female deer
Re, a drop of golden sun

Fa, a long, long way to run
So, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow So
Ti, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do
