Fabulous Friday

On the lighter side, this weekend we’ll celebrate Sammy’s 1st birthday … probably with some catnip for the boys, but NO chocolate.

Sammy’s very social … he follows Buddy around the house and has to see what everyone is doing. He’s really a curious cat.

I have a question for you, dear blog readers:

Should I remake this in just turquoise and silver? Or turquoise and coral/red?
