Dear Stephanie… I got a Kitten!
Dear Stephanie…. Today I got a kitten. Here is the new cat. Who’s name has not yet been picked. Holy crow you forget when you get a kitten exactly how much trouble a kitten is. You also forget how within minutes of them becoming your forever friend you love them to pieces. That is always […]
