In Cat Bought a Zoo, a single 6-year-old tabby is going through a difficult time in his life. His kitty modeling career hits a snag when he loses a big job to an up-and-coming younger kitty. Tired and stressed, he quits, cashes out his life savings and buys a piece of property on the outskirts of town, which he decides to turn into a petting zoo/spa.


Highly recommended if you’re looking for a good family movie. It actually got an 85% on Rottentomatoes. 🙂

In other news, happy Sunday, friend. How’s it going over there? I’m sorry I’ve been so incommunicado in the comments lately. I’m trying to wrap up a couple of time-consuming projects, and I’m almost there. I have been reading everything, though, even when I haven’t had much time to reply.

No Makeup Monster sightings this week, so we’re safe for now, but you can bet they’re out there… Plotting… Waiting for their chance to strike.

It’s only a matter of time. It’s always only a matter of time.

      Hi, Paris B. How’s it going? I hope you had a nice weekend (isn’t it already Monday there?).

      BTW, I love what you’ve been doing lately with your pictures. I’ve always liked them, but they’re getting better by the day. I love the way you’ve been composing them with different backgrounds and labels, and they’re very crisp and sharp.

      Have a great week.

      • Paris B says:

        Thank you so much Karen! Still practicing as I go and drawing inspiration from the best! 😉 Yes we’re halfway through Monday already (thank goodness!) and I’m quite ready for the day to be over. Hope you have a good week ahead 🙂
