Pinned toot

Warning, I fav and maybe boost every. single. cat. I see.

Happy #caturday! His new favorite thing is asking to be picked up when I am sitting at my desk

then a fucking cardinal comes along and stands on the high feeder yelling at the chippie and it's like jesus christ man, don't you remember what it's like when you let a sparrow drive you off?

George: there's another approaching. and another

jerry: a third blurred warbird?
