Really I’ve Been This Cute All Nine Lives

I’ve had many cats over the years and most have been quite entertaining. Each with their own personality. The big fat cat in the box in this stamp set made me chuckle and reminded me of Fletcher, a stray feral kitten we adopted about 8 years ago. He continues to be a bit wild living the dream on an inlet at our dear friends’ the Lynn’s, and for sure will be the first to try to fit in a box half his size. Bwahahah!
