Grumpy Cat

These are some pretty hilarious photos! Tartar Sauce, nicknamed Grumpy Cat, is a cat with some pretty interesting facial expressions. Her grumpy expression isn't photo-shopped, either!The owners explain that Tartar Sauce is actually a very happy-go-lucky cat with a mellow personality. These are some of my favorite pictures of Grumpy Cat.

Weather is Warming Up!!!

     With all the snow the we have been getting, even into spring, its nice to see that it has finally stopped! All four of my adorable animals are enjoying the weather change as well! Sunny and Charlie enjoy being able to run around the yard and sniffing the grass that hasn't been visible for ages. Pie really loves eating newly grown grass and Midnight loves to run around their house without having huge snow piles in the way. Rain has been coming and going, which is bad for spring sports, but is quite wonderful for turning the grass green shades of beautiful.
