Tilly Greene said...

Ahhh, kat-tea! Fabulous!

Munchkin, Missy and Monte said...

Great list.
In answer to your question about Monte's buddies..Mommie makes them. She wants to sell them, to make money to purchase a program bean boy with his dyslexia, one level of it costs $300, and there are nine levels..thats a lot of temptations. However she is not certain if anyone will want them.

Our Momma knew a dawg named Neko once. I bet he didn't know that his name means cat in Japan.*giggle*

Hey Kimo & Sabi! Fred & Holly from our Italian division just called me to complain that you left out the Italian 'gatto'. I told them Carmen had already notified you, and that this is Thursday 13, not 14. But you know how those gatti italiani are - they're mutterin' something about an offer you cannot refuse.
