Calgon, take me away. (But NOT to a bath!)

Hello, my friends. In case you’ve forgotten me (I hope you haven’t!), my name is Carol and this is my blog. I take my responsibility to share my observations with you very seriously, and I’ve been woefully negligent. For that I apologize.

On Golden Paw

When I was a kitten, the world was a much different place. For starters, cats didn’t have blogs. Continue reading
