Apollo the Kitten Falling Asleep

Apollo, after an hour of play, decided to suck on his paw as he fell asleep. Apollo's mother had killed his three siblings and to save his life, he was taken from her and raised by hand. A few months before picking his mother up from the shelter, my closest friend, Prowl the Main coon, passed away. I was depressed for many weeks. Apollo helped me to recover. He was born deformed and sickly but grew into a strong, energetic tom cat. Sadly, I had to let him go to a new home.
