Feline Mechanic

I think a mouse or other rodent died in my car engine. When I turn on the heat there’s an awful stench. I asked Alias if he wouldn’t mind checking it out…

Cutest Pet Contest

 I entered Norma and Alias in our office’s Cutest Pet Contest. After the first day, they are in third place. That’s actually impressive since I haven’t voted so others are voting for them. Good luck kids…

Norma’s Big Adventure

Norma had her annual visit to the vet. Needless to say she was extremely unhappy when I scooped her up and put her in the carrier. She checked out healthy.
