Mom of our resident cat, Figment, sent this to us. I always try to take a photo of Toby while I’m trying to wrap gifts, but he always seems to jet away or he starts eating the wrapping paper. What does your pet do while you’re wrapping gifts during the holiday season? Do they plop… Continue reading How Do You Wrap Those Odd Size Gifts?
