Effing Feline loves naps #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am about to shock you, so hold onto your hair pieces. I sometimes take naps. Most cats do, of course, but I am such an exceptional specimen, a cat who has accomplished so much, that I know you’re thinking I work 16 hours a day, every day. But I am a BIG […]
