You silly cat

Our cat Bandit had surgery and thus needs to wear the cone of shame. We took it off her briefly. Another cat, Harry, began sniffing and exploring it then suddenly started running around the room in panic. He stuck his head into it and couldn’t get it off. I was laughing so hard it took […]
