What’s New, Pussycats?
I know my writings have been few and far between lately. Sometimes it’s hard to come up with something new and exciting or even worthwhile to write about.

The Egyptians venerated and worshiped the cat above all other animals. They say that cats have not forgotten this, and from the behavior of any cat I’veContinue reading “A Little “Cat-titude””
