The cat's outa the bag.



If the truth be told, I'm not all that fond of grocery shopping, or any kind of shopping for that matter. Especially when it seems to be the same thing every week. Go to the store, load up the cart, bag 'em and drag 'em home. Fortunately I have my trusty helper to get all those groceries put away. Snickers, what would I do without you?

Cinderella Kitty

While the dogs are playing all day long, fetching and chasing their tails, cats are getting a bad rep for sleeping all day. That may be true, but if your cat is anything like Snickers they were probably up most of the night doing all the laundry. Phew! Got the frabric softener in just in time.
