I am a huge fan of that last category. (no pun intended)
Yes those adorable kitties have to be the absolute best… soooo cute.
Love the kitties!
Love rock band 2!
The kitties are definitely cute. I keep looking at kitty pictures and wishing our kitty was still a kitten and in the too cute to be believed stage.
What? No best pattern/projects?
But yeah, the kitties are freakin’ adorable.
