sharing a glass of wine and good conversation,
scaring the bejeezus out of you by getting admitted to the hospital while you visit, even if it turns out everything is OK in the end,
spoiling you with attention and affection until the very second you leave for the airport,
or are the adorably furry kind, who like to sleep in the sink, look mad as heck when they're really sweet as can be, or are the new kid on the block who can win you over with those puppy dog eyes and all that energy wrapped up in a little 5 pound body.
We love each and every one of them to bits and are already missing them like crazy.
