Here is a big shout out to the many furry critters who humored their human by donning a festive Halloween get-up! You can all relax… Halloween only comes once a year…

Today’s post is dedicated to my human friend Dave and his cat Roger. Dave and Roger rescued each other on a windy winter day 16 years ago. Roger passed away this week-after a long happy life, in the care of a human who loved him deeply- and who I’m certain he loved back.
