Izzy Auditions to Be a Bodega Cat

Izzy Auditions to Be a Bodega Cat

I posted an update over on our fundraiser page, so I don't have a whole lot of energy to dedicate to blogging. Instead, I offer you a special holiday edition of #Caturday in which Izzy finds our soda stash in the garage and auditions to be a Bodega Cat. Photos by Dan,...

Nothing Compares 2U

For the past week I've been saying it's time to shave my head again. I've also been waking up every morning with the song "Nothing Compares 2U" by Sinéad O'Connor stuck in my nugget. Coincidence?...
