Cat on a hat

Does the Tooth Fairy visit kitty cats?

This is The Boog, his official name is Jasper, and he’s got a toothache. On Wednesday I took him to the vet to get his tooth checked out. He was very interested in the view out the window. He weighs 8 pounds, which isn’t surprising, he’s a tiny cat. Like, miniature kitty. If he was […]
