In keeping with today's themes of pussy power and fashion, I'd like to introduce you to a model who is making his mark on Etsy-- tiny paw prints, to be exact. Toki Nantucket is the whiskered face of CatAtelier, an Etsy shop offering "hats, accessories, and clothing for your fashion-forward feline...by a detail-oriented perfectionist cat-lover." I'm on the fence about pet accessories and have never personally dabbled in cat clothes (because my cat couldn't sit ... Read More
There are various opinions on the day that is Valentine's Day, but me? I love it. I like hearts. I like candy. I like the color pink. I'm all for it.

It's the stupidest holiday ever except for the fact that it provides the perfect excuse to order a heart-shaped pizza for one and buy yourself a present.
