As we enter that orange-spangled supermonth of tricks, treats and toddlers dressed as tacos, things aren’t quite cool at Tabby’s Place. We are spinning from record-smashing temperatures (92, anyone?) and wondering if Oscar‘s state of meltitude may be irreversible at this point.
But no matter. Autumn is here, wildly warm or otherwise, and we are glad.
We are also glad for September’s stories:

Rock your ‘tober, treasured ones. May it be warm in all the right ways.
