Our cat Ally

Emilia loves cats. I don't know where that comes from because I'm more of a dog person than a cat lover. It might be due to the fact that we don't own a cat and that Emilia likes what she doesn't have.

Most children have imaginary friends. Emilia has imaginary pets. She has a cat named Ally that plays with her. Sometimes Ally brings her other imaginary pet friends and Emilia has to introduce them all to me. They are all cats named Ally.

She loves to toss Ally downstairs for me to catch and then I have to throw it back up to her. She feeds it, bathes it and does everything you would do to take care of a baby, except it's a cat.

When she's done playing with Ally she comes and tells me 'Mom, Ally ran away again'.

This has been going on for a few weeks now and she'll gladly introduce you to Ally if you ask her about it next time you see her.
