I Have Chosen a Human!

Yes, it’s true! Of all the humans who have come to this house to see me (because, of course, that’s why they come here), I have chosen the most wonderful human of all. First, she was besotted with my charming photo, above, which I carefully planned to catch the eyes

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Has a Drink, 2012

Water for Pets, Wildlife—and People—in Extreme Heat

Daily Photo: Kitten Plot

What do you suppose Theodore is telling Simon? This was actually taken very early on in their time here, from July 2, and it shows how far along these boys have come. Theodore was feeling pretty confident by the morning after he came here, but Simon was still uncertain of
