Cat sitting is a great Photo Opp

Cat sitting is a great Photo Opp

I’ve been cat sitting again, for another boy cat. Though this one is totally adorable and fun. And orange. And adorable, did I say that? He likes to sleep on the top shelf of my bookcase, just under the roof. He likes to nudge me with his head – and he can jump really really […]

Gifts and inspiration
