How We Met

I saw the breed online & fell in love. I found a breeder in PA, so I contacted Bengaland, saw their available litters & Armani jumped off the page. I had to have him. He is my heart & soul. The sweetest cat ever.

Tuesday hugs are coming your way...
along with happy purrs!
We're patiently waiting for the 70 degree temps they said we'll get today. So far it's still only in the upper 50s with wind but the sun is shining & birds are chirping so we're keeping our paws crossed they're right about a warm up!

They're still laying new fiber-optic cable in our area this morning. Hopefully when they get finished we won't have phone & internet problems when we get nasty weather. Another thing to keep our paws crossed for!

We've been very quiet & sleepy so far today but that's only because we were up all night romping...MOL! Fluffers & Trixie had a little boxing match that abruptly ended when I jumped on Fluffers to wrestle. Got to get her while she's worn out if I want to win because she's a lot bigger than me...MOL! Anyway, we must have kept the dog awake some too because mom had to wake her up to take her outside. She was yawning & stretching as she came from her kennel but is now out barking happily at the horses as she prances around the yard...MOL! that the dog is out we're awake & ready to romp again...except for Patches, who fell asleep again looking out the window...MOL! Time for me to track down my fursisters Trixie & Fluffers & see what we can get into!

Playful purrs,
Monkey & sisters

Hey There Armani & Chloe
Happy Spring and Easter to you both. Hope you get some catnip goodies & salmon cakes in your baskets. We do wish some beautiful weather comes your way soon. I bet the cat show was awesome to visit. It is a shame they don't let bengals in. They are so "show beautiful", they would truly steal the show from all the others! Talk to ya soon. Cheers!

Hey there Armani & Chloe
Well hello! I am so surprised that cat channel is still here and they are still doing "cat of the day". I thought the site was shut down & turned off at the end of January. Anyway, how are the two of you? Hope you two are having fun playing & romping around. Simba and I enjoy window watching the birds, squirrel & dog. This winter has been unusually warm so we have even gotten a chance to play with the dog outside. Come by for a visit & some yummy salmon treats. Hope to see you soon.

8 inches of snow followed by frigid temps
is making the NICE crew wish the season would speed up & move out...MOL! Sometime next week it's supposed to get to the 20's, which will feel like a heat wave...unless you look out the windows & see the giant drifts everywhere. School was cancelled yesterday but they went today after delaying for 2 hours. Now the kids are wondering when they'll have to make up all the lost days. Some are saying they'll take days away from spring break (which will mess up a lot of pre-made vacation plans for some) or add them on at the end of the year. Whichever way they choose there will be some that aren't happy...especially the kids...MOL!

We're all doing pawsome & have been very playful the last few days. Even Patches is joining in the fun! I like to grab her tail to make her jump because then she'll give me a goofy look & take off running. She & I trapped Fluffinella under dad's robe a little while ago, which made the full nutty side of Fluffers come out...MOL! Every time she'd try to move one of us would pounce on the robe, grab her tail or swat at her ears. You might be wondering where our infamous calico cyclone was during all of this & so was I until I heard the dog start barking. Trixie had dragged the dog's favorite ball out & was rolling it around the floor right in front of Sammie's kennel. That blew the dog's naptime...MOL! Mom finally convinced Trixie to play with one of the kitty balls instead & put Sammie's up so she'd quit barking & stomping her paws. The dog is now sleeping but her ears are perked up to listen for any more kitty antics.
Our 6 kitty 'guests' are all still inside & are doing great. Mom says these are going to be the most spoiled rotten 'barn cats' she's ever had since they've been in for so long. Bob is still outside but has moved into the heated cattery area next to the front door. He's doing fine & mom is hoping the extra attention will make it where she can handle him soon instead of just pets.
Well I've got to run (literally) because Trixie is looking bored & could probably use a Monkey maniac boost...MOL! Have a purrfect day dear furiends!

Playful purrs,

P.S. Big purrs of thanks to all of you that are pouncing by to use the Mews Room forum! We just approved our first 'outside of CC' member & look forward to seeing kitties from other closing communities join us if they're looking for a new 'home'!

i've only been here since Jan.6th and already she and i have got the "bad kitty" lecture twice because she insists on teaching me how to flush the toilet!! i don't know why i got the lecture,after all i was just sitting on the seat taking notes,Adorkable did all the
actual flushing! besides,mom didn't think i heard her.....but i did! after she gave us the blah,blah talk and scooped us both up and kissed us on the head and put us out of the bathroom...she was laughing!!!

Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements. Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM
Even the ☃ is frozen solid & complaining...
Here’s the notice mom received from an Indianapolis News station:

It is a very cold morning in Indiana. During the morning rush hour temperatures continue to drop with wind chills in the area ranging from -20 to -30. Eventually we’ll reach a high of 5 degrees. Tonight , we drop down to -2. Look for temperatures to slowly warm up during the day with our next chance for snow coming in late Thursday. By then, highs will reach 30 degrees.

WOW…we might actually hit 30 degrees later this week! We’ll be basking in that kind of warmth after suffering from frigid temps the past two weeks! We’re currently at a temp of -11 with a ‘real feel’ of -26…which is actually better than some others we’re hearing! Sending our warmest hugs to help keep you warm if you’re in one of these frigid zones!
**************************************************- **********
Teehee…I’m tickled pink that the Mews Room (formerly CMR) is doing a shout-out for me today! I’m SO excited about my birthday being tomorrow. I’ll be a big 4 year old so watch out world because this cyclone isn’t going to slow down anytime soon…MOL! Well got to run so mom can feed the kids & let them hog the internet since they’re home from school again today. Have a purrfect day everyone!

Sweet calico kisses,

HI Armani!
nice to meet you too! sorry your mom had computer problems. only another month or maybe less before cc goes bye-bye! lots of kitties have already joined other cat websites but mom is waiting and checking them all out before she makes a decision where we're going to land.

well,by yesterday afternoon when we were all still under the couch hiding and no flea goop yet,dopey Adorkable LiLi decided to venture out and see what was up and....yep,you guessed it she got nabbed and got her flea goop and a nail trim! we all scattered in different directions but one by one we got rudely dragged out of our hiding places and gooped and clipped!! i think mom felt guilty afterwards(as well she should!!!)because we all got lots of tuna greenies..yum :)

sure is sad to see so many, many kitties upset and going to miss all their furiends! hope that we(cc members) are able to find somewhere

❄ Knock knock knock ❄
Armani opens the door to find K. Mike and Lady Dolly with Angel Mallow & Sir O.J., Evie, and Angels Sir Leo, Lily Rose, Rani, Smokey, Jezebel & Pierre. All are dressed in their most festive red and green, wearing Santa hats and holding song sheets. Lady Dolly holds Princess Molly Rose bundled up in a Hello Kitty blanket, and Angel Mallow has Mojo Black Bear by the paw. Mojo is bouncing with excitement at having won Diary of the Day today on Catster, and the sleigh bells she’s holding are jingling merrily! K. Mike blows a note and they begin to sing:

♫ Claw the Halls and hack up furballs
Meow meow meow meow meow
Me-OW, Me-OW!

♫ Terrorize the family gerbils
Meow meow meow meow meow
Me-OW, Me-OW!

♫ Shred the carpet, climb the curtains
Meow Meow Meow, Meow Meow Meow

♫ We’ll get presents still, we’re certain
Meow meow meow meow meow

The kitties hug Armani, Miss Chloe and their Mom, while the Angels release a flurry of Angel dust over them. The family hands Armani a gift basket with candy canes, Christmas oranges, gingerbread cat cookies and a big chunk of A. Mallow’s famous and now Heavenly liver fruitcake, perfect for any festive occasion (“Or for an emergency doorstop” whispers Mike). Now the carolers sing again:

♫ Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too,
And God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year! ♫

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! -- K. Mike and ALL the family

Hi Armani & family!
^~^ SHOUT-OUT VOTE for STORMY #237240 ^~^

Please join me in a shout-out vote for my dear furiend Stormy (#237240) today, on Sunday, December 15th. This pretty kitty has been a great friend of mine since I was COTM back in June. She’s never had a COTD badge and I’d love to see her get one before CC is just a happy memory. I know she would be overjoyed.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my human gave to me:
♫ Twelve bags of catnip,
Eleven tartar Pounce treats,
Ten ornaments hanging,
Nine pots of cat grass,
Eight peacock feathers,
Seven stolen Q-tips,
Six feathered balls,
Four scratching posts,
Three running faucets,
Two fuzzy mousies,
And a hamster in a plastic ball!! ♫

We're preparing for even colder weather
It's now 27 with a real feel of 22...which is actually better than yesterday! Our forecast for the weekend sounds really lousy though because we'll also have snow to go with the cold. Guess Old Man Winter couldn't wait to move in any longer...MOL!

It's been an interesting day so far. Monkey & Fluffinella are getting in lots of trouble knocking ornaments off the Christmas trees. What makes it even worse is that they've already broken 2 glass ones trying to see which ones roll the best across the floor. Mom has been rearranging the more fragile ornaments further up the tree in the hopes that they won't climb up it again to reach them. I've actually been a lot better about the trees this year & have only taken down one tiny gold bell. Unfortunately mom saw me roll it under the stove...MOL! Dad said he'll pull out the stove to get it when he gets home. Oops...MOL!

Big sis found out that her due date is June 21st! She also sent mom pictures of her first ultrasound but they weren't able to determine whether it's a girl or boy yet so we're hoping the next one in February will tell us that.
Well I can't meow too much today since mom wants to sweep up glitter from the carpet that fell off the ornaments that my ornery sisters got down. She's also trying to finish emptying the boxes so dad can put them back in the closet tonight & wants to get started on her Christmas cards.

Have a purrfect day dear furiends!

Hi there Armani!!
how wonderful that you & Chloe sang Happy Birthday to your mom but geez,big guy,we should never ask our mom's how old they are,they kind of freak out,MOL!!

how nice mom had lots of family and friends including that surprise visit from your uncle. surprise visits from someone we haven't seen are always so nice.

sure hope that your heat got fixed on Friday! mom's seen those heaters on tv and she thinks they're really pretty and practical :)

yep,sure did make my list for Santaclaws. it started with something pink and ended with something pink and everything inbetween was pink,hahaha! a girl can never have enough pink!
i have it on good authority that mom's going to be wrapping Christmas presents soon too which means lots of rolls of paper,ribbons,and bows to play with. the best part is swiping little bows and making mom chase us for them,poor mom,we can out run and out jump her any ol' day,MOL!! the only thing i don't like is when mom drops some tape and i step in it and i try to yank it off and get it stuck on my nose or mouth so i try to paw it off and then it's stuck on my paw again! what a dilemma,hahahaha!
hope you're having a purrfect day :)

Hi Armani and Chloe!
Wish your sweet mom a very Happy Birthday from all of us! Ooh, sorry about the heater going out. Yeah, it's been really cold out here, too. Down into the 30's at night. It's raining outside now

Glad that you are enjoying the blog. You can catch up the past Dix days on CMR. I hope you've been following along. I will make sure to stop by with the daily post.

I'm not going to get into the details of the city's cultural outlook at the time, it was the mid-1800's, just gonna touch on the events. We must remember, San Francisco was about as far west, as the Wild West got! It was a town made up mostly of hard scrap gold miners looking for their fortunes, hopeful immigrants with the same idea, and, of course, all the various opportunists waiting for a chance to cash in. The young city provided the best chance for smugglers, pirates, bankers, and, (gulp), politicians.
I'll be covering that tomorrow.
Good night kitties!

Thank you dear furiends...
for wrapping your paws around my family in loving & gentle comfort when I joined the angels last Monday. My spirit is now flying free & I've discovered the joy of spreading angel dust thanks to the helping paws of my precious angel furiends & fursibs. I know my earthly family will continue to hold me forever in their hearts as they move on with their lives, but right now they're still getting used to me not being there with a sweet meow or soft purrs when they need them the most. My sisters Patches & Trixie have been a great comfort to them as they climb into empty laps purring softly & my younger sisters, Fluffinella & Monkey, have been making them laugh with their antics to help chase the gloom away. I won't be doing 'regular' family blogging like I used to but rest assured that my voice will ring out when it's needed most. Thank you for being there for my family...& me during my illness & passing dear furiends!

Purrs of love & sprinkles of angel dust,
Angel K Zaboo
Light a candle,
see it glow,
watch it dance,
when you feel low,
think of me,
think of light,
I'll always be here,
day or night,
a candle flickers,
out of sight,
but in your heart,
I still burn bright,
think not of sadness,
that I'm not near,
think of gladness,
and joyous cheer,
I have not left,
I am not gone,
I'm here to stay
my little one.
So when you light a candle
and you see it glow
and you watch it dance
in your heart you'll know,
that I would never leave you
even when you feel so blue
I'm sitting up here with the Lord

Neelix's introduction to early San Francisco
European visitors to the San Francisco Bay Area were preceded approximately 8,000 years earlier by Native Americans. Linguistic evidence is uncertain as to whether these earliest inhabitants of San Francisco were ancestors of the Ohlone, [oh-lo'-nay], population first encountered by the Spanish in the late 18th century. The Ohlone were part of a much larger, contiguous set of tribal bands that lived from south of the Golden Gate to Monterey.

The Ohlone inhabited fixed village locations, moving temporarily to gather seasonal foodstuffs like acorns and berries. The Ohlone people lived in Northern California from the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula down to Big Sur in the south, and from the Pacific Ocean in the west to the Diablo Range in the east. Their vast region included the entire San Francisco Peninsula, Santa Clara Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains, Monterey Bay area, as well as present-day Alameda County, Contra Costa County and the Salinas Valley.

Prior to Spanish contact, the Ohlone formed a complex interactive association of approximately 50 different "nations or tribes" with about 50 to 500 members each, with an average of 200. Over 50 distinct Ohlone tribes and villages have been recorded. The Ohlone villages interacted through trade, intermarriage and ceremonial events, as well as some internecine conflict. Cultural arts included basket-weaving skills, seasonal ceremonial dancing events, female tattoos, ear and nose piercings, and other ornamentation. Ohlone artifacts have been identified as far away as New Mexico, through ancient intertribal trade networks.

The Ohlone subsisted mainly as hunter-gatherers. Their staple diet consisted of crushed acorns, nuts, seeds, berries, and other vegetation. They hunted and trapped game. Seafood, (including mussels and abalone from the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean), were also important to their diet. These food sources were abundant in earlier times and maintained by careful work, and through active conservation of the natural resources at hand.
Animals in their mild climate included the grizzly bear, elk, pronghorn, and deer. The streams held salmon, perch, trout and stickleback. Birds included plentiful ducks, geese, quail, great horned owls, woodpeckers, goldfinches, and magpies. Waterfowl were the most important birds in the people's diet, which were captured with nets and decoys. Along the ocean shore and bays, there were also otters, whales, and at one time, thousands of sea lions.

The Spanish conquest of the San Francisco Bay Area came later than to Southern California. For one thing, San Francisco's characteristic foggy weather and geography led early European explorers such as Sir Francis Drake and Juan Cabrillo, to bypass the Golden Gate and miss entering San Francisco Bay, but it seems clear from historical accounts of navigation, that they passed close to the coastline north and south of the Golden Gate.

Wooooooo Hoooooooo! we saw your pic in Cats USA and #1 purrty kitty is right!! boy,do you look handsome in that layout,of course we all know how handsome you are without any frills ;)

hooray your house is all decked out for Christmas! is mom going to post any pics? we would love to see! we'll be putting a pic of our tree in our galleries soon. mom got a tree this year that she can change the lights from white to multi-colored or have them morphing and she doesn't even have to leave the couch to do it as it came with a remote control,MOL!!!

well,i haven't gotten into any trouble this week so far,it is only Monday,however that has never stopped me before,hahaha! i did get into a little trouble last week. mom buys these huge plastic bags of bounty towels and was putting them away and threw the huge plastic bag on the floor so we were all playing with it!
sliding on it and poking holes in it. yeah,that was fun,but that's not the funny part!
later on Addie crawled inside the bag and was sleeping so i laid across the bag right
in front of her so she couldn't get out,hahahahahaha! she tried to swat at me and nip
me through the bag until i finally got up and let her out and then she chased me all
over the house,what fun!!! don't worry i can out run and out jump Addie,MOL!

Thank you for the prayers for K Zaboo
It's another chilly day outside & the sunshine didn't arrive until a few minutes ago so we're getting a later start than normal.
Zaboo is the same. He's still nibbling on canned food several times a day (can't finish it all at once anymore), getting up for drinks & litterbox runs, & even moved over to the rug when mom was cooking dinner last night. He's still got very little energy but doesn't seem to be in any discomfort so I guess I can say he's still stable. All of us thank our dear CC furiends for the continued prayers, gentle hugs of comfort & the soft purrs they're pouncing by to give him!

Trixie caught a big, fat mouse this morning!! Woohoo for my sis...MOL! She's an amazing huntress but what's even more amazing is that she willingly let go of her catch & let it scurry toward Monkey! It bit Monkey's paw when she grabbed it but that didn't stop her from grabbing it again & taking it to the laundry room...MOL! Trixie sat in one doorway & I sat in the other the entire time to make sure it didn't escape. Trixie never once interfered with Monkey's first live mouse training session so I give her a big paws up for being such a good patient sister. I, on the other paw, tried to see if I could get it away from her...MOL! That got me growled at! I've never heard Monkey growl at me before so I went back to my place in the doorway & made myself content with observing & preventing escape. When it was all over for mousey mom scooped him up in a dustpan & tossed it outside. Too bad Patches slept through the fun! Guess that will teach her not to romp late into the night...MOL!
Well I've got to go catch up with Monkey so will sign off for now & meow at you more next week. Thank you again for keeping our sweet big brother in your thoughts & prayers! If anything changes over the weekend I'll be sure to let you know but we're keeping our paws crossed that it doesn't.

Gentle hugs & sweet purrs,
Fluffinella & NICE Crew girls

Hi there Armani!
yep,mom's worried again because i keep eyeing this little elf that has long dangly legs about half way up the tree,MOL! why don't our mom's get that trees and cats go together just like pb&J!
i don't understand why your mom doesn't appreciate your "cutout" designs in the ribbon,hahahaha!

my mom loves Christmas music too! she plays her own and then when they put it on the music stations on tv she listens to those while she does housework :)

oh,boy,how wonderful for you that your mom's nurse really gets into the holiday spirit and can add to the festivities!

well, i guess i might as well tell you,mom thought this was sooooooooo funny! seriously,i can't wait to catch MOM doing something goofy so that I can tell the WHOLE world!!! i went into the bathroom and there it was! this ginormous Snowman with his sidekick reindeer!! i pulled the best halloween kitty pose i could and puffed myself all out just as mom and Puzzle were walking by. they stopped,looked at me as if i was an idiot, *snickered* and that's when i realized it was the CHRISTMAS SHOWER CURTAIN! WELL! i composed myself as quickly as possible and said "i knew that!" don't think they believed me :(

A very cold day...
It's only 32 degrees outside with a real feel of 26 & we still have a light dusting of snow on the grass! Just this once we wish the weather people had been wrong with their forecasts...MOL! It's supposed to warm up a wee bit tomorrow but not until after it drops into the teens tonight. is glad she got the cattery outside ready for the cold weather when she did or we might have some sick ones right now!
I thought I was going to have to show my catitude & have a hissing fit this morning when Daisy Mae decided she wanted to come in! (She's never wanted in before but has always been the most frequent window peeper.) Anyway, mom let her look around for a little bit but then made her go back out so she could eat her breakfast. It seemed to satisfy her curiosity (plus got her extra mom time) because she chirped happily as she went out & didn't look back. Of course I went straight over to sniff at mom & get some reassuring hugs before I took off to play with Monkey & Trixie again. We've been rather rambunctious lately since mom moved the furniture in the living room all around. We just look at mom innocently when she says we're being crazy to remind her that we need leaping & distance judging practice thanks to her...MOL!
Patches won't join us in for this activity since she prefers being being on the ground. Instead she whacked at us as we ran by for a while before she found a napping spot out of our way. Sweet Zaboo...letting you know that he won't be doing any blogging anymore due to his rapid health decline. He's still not eating well & is spending most of his time sleeping next to the heater in the kitchen or living room. Mom is keeping him as comfortable as possible, but she & dad said they won't prolong things if he gets any worse or shows signs that he's suffering. Hoping & praying they won't have to give him their final gift of love soon but that all depends on how things progress...

Soft purrs,
Fluffinella & NICE crew

Well, hi there Armani!
nice to hear from you! you probably aren't going to believe this but our Christmas tree is already up and our house is decorated. mom just has a couple of small things left to do. we always decorate early because we have friends and family come from up north to visit between October and December and that way we can celebrate an early Christmas with them as they'll all be home with their own families on Christmas day :)
we had so much fun getting into all the boxes and bins and pulling stuff out that mom had to chase us for! what fun for us and good exercise for mom,MOL!!!
i did climb in the tree twice before it was decorated but haven't done it since. of course that doesn't mean that i'm not thinking about it,hahahaha!!! hope that you and Chloe have oodles of fun with mom decorating and enjoying what mischief you can get into ;) don't forget, if you pull something out of a box or bag or bin and it "crinkles" it's fair game,MOL!!!

Hi Armani!
Thanks so much for your concatulations on my upcoming marriage to my sweetheart Talley. We are both very excited and I will keep you informed as our plans develop.

We woke up to a very cold morning. Well, 40 degrees is cold to us Californians! It’s too cold to sit outside, so we are all napping inside trying to catch the sun in the bay windows.

I left a vote with purrs and warm hugs.

A cat isn't fussy - just so long as you remember he likes his milk in the shallow, rose-patterned saucer and his fish on the blue plate. From which he will take it, and eat it off the floor. ~Arthur Bridges =^.^=

~Happy National Candy Day~
GREAT to hear from you Armani & Miss Chloe. We were starting to worry about you! Mom says she's not looking forward to putting up the Christmas tree this year with Monkey in the house! Guess she already knows she'll find her in it...MOL!

I don't have much time to blog today but there's no way I'd completely miss such a sweet day! To celebrate this pawsome event I've brought each of you a bag of catnip coated grasshoppers & a tuna flavored lollipop all wrapped up in a vote delivered with loving purrs. Have a purrfect day dear furiends!

My sweet heart Talley and I have some wonderful news. We’ve finally chosen a date for our wedding day. Talley did some research and discovered January 6th (which is a Monday next year) was considered Christmas before the reform of the calendar. It is the feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Wise Men reached Jesus and announced his birth to the world. It is still called “Old Christmas” by orthodox Christians. The celebration is held on the Sunday that falls between January 2nd and January 8th. We chose Sunday, the fifth of January 2014 to exchange our vows.

We still have a lot of planning to do dear furiends. We will soon let you know where and on what page our wedding will take place. Until then, we hope you can set aside the date to share in the celebration of our love.

Our warmest day of the week?
It's only supposed to reach 54 today with a predicted low of 30 tonight...which means I should wake up to see my very first frost tomorrow! The rest of the week is supposed to be even cooler with a cold front moving in. Luckily all of the outside kitties have had their blankets washed & tucked into their cattery houses so they're ready for the cold...even if our humans aren't...MOL!

Dad surprised mom by going to work this morning but the kids are still home for the day & will return to school tomorrow. Mom said since the kids are entranced with TV right now that I could meow out a short blog & chase a few of you to keep warm...MOL! Who's up for a good romp? I know Fluffinella is because she made sure I was awake this morning by pouncing on me & licking my ears. Once we'd all had our canned food it was wrestle time, followed by a three kitty race. Fluffinella came out on top (literally) in the wrestling match & Trixie was the paws down winner of the race. One of these days I'll be a contender for both of these esteemed titles but they have to admit they can't do the stunts I do on the cat tree...MOL!
Well I've got to get pouncing to see what my sisters are up to. In honor of National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day I'm leaving everyone a generous slice with your vote. Have a magnificent Monday everyone!

Sweet whisker kisses,
Monkey & NICE Crew

P.S. We haven't heard from you for a while & are hoping everything is going okay for you & your human family.
