It has healed hurt feelings when her brothers tease her and when her big sister picks on her. All these are normal sibling things and certainly the pacifier wasn't always there when needed, if it was close it was used. Giving it up will be a challenge for little Tatum and the rest at the family too!
|Tatum and Sally, 2012|
Little Tatum realized her mom, her aunt and grandma were locked in the bathroom and she was locked out. Tears and loud crying finally opened the door to show Miss Tatum her birthday surprise. The still flea bitten kitten was being held for 5 minutes to allow the shampoo to work. It's little head was spiked with wet hair, her little feet were reaching out with claws bared to grab anything close enough to save it from this horrible wet experience. We were all saying Happy Birthday Tatum and the kitten let out a pitiful yeow. Tatum took one look and started backing away in fear of that strange wet flea bitten creature. Tatum was terrified of her special birthday present!
Not the response her mom had hoped and had anyone had dry hands, a camera should have been used to capture the expression of "I don't want anything to do with THAT!"
We soon finished with bathing the flea bitten kitten. It soon dried it off and it began to look like a more like a soft and furry little kitten that could be held and loved on. This photo is of Tatum and new kitten, Sally.
P. S. Tatum is doing fine without the pacifier, not so sure about the family.....
