Aloha, friend! Chances are, as you’re reading this, I’m on a plane ✈️ soaring over the Pacific Ocean, because we’re headed to Hawaii 🌺 today (the island of Oahu) to see family. Word on the street is that it’s “cold” (air quotes) over there right now, but you know…if cold means upper-70s with an occasional downpour, I’ll take it. I’m still crossing my fingers that it’ll be sunny a few days, though, so I can go to the beach and make friends with some beach cats. Tabs, who will be working closely with (a.k.a micromanaging) his favorite pet sitter here at the home office, has tasked me with finding new kitty modeling talent while I’m there, and as I’m sure you’re aware, Tabs won’t accept anything less than excellence.
Good luck to me!
