There are days when your inbox is full of grumblers and mumblers, Nigerian lottery announcements, and people inviting you to see their fun webcams/buy their fun Rolexes/try their fun pharmaceuticals.

I think it’s fair to say that we love every single adopter who joins the Tabby’s Place family. But I confess I have a soft spot the size of Mongolia for those adopters who send letters “home” from their alumni. So it is with great delight that I share the latest from none other than […]
