Dr. Alisa Neymark, Koda, Lily & Finnegan

Taiyo Kitagawa & Lebowski

“I was living in San Francisco when a college friend got a kitten from the@SPCA. He later found out his apartment didn’t allow pets. I offered to cat-sit until he figured things out since I’ve always wanted a cat and thought of this as good practice to see if I could take care of one. […]
