Good morning, Franny! What a sweet face you have - and I love your markings! You have to explain to your family about the food thing, though. You're not STEALING the food - you're just product testing. All gourmets must test the product to make sure it's satisfactory and you're no different. After all, unsavory food would not be a good thing in your house, would it now?
Well, you have a wonderful day, sweetie; congratulations on your COTD honor! I'm so glad you're a FORMER stray!
