A rose is a rose is a rose is a toy in Tinyworld. Above, a dried rose from the Christmas centerpiece hangs suspended in air just after our toss and before the sweet tiny girl rises up to catch it with both paws and go for the jugular. A hard moment to catch on "film" with our camera in one hand and pitching the ball rose with the other.
The sweetest girl kitty ever.
Update: "I love this photo," writes Laura Lee in the comments. "In its mistiness it looks like Tiny has a guardian angel."
