    1. I know! Its soooooo cute. I showed it to Mr Oli (my male cat) and was like LOOK can we adopt a kitten like this as your child? 😉 He didn’t exactly give me the look of “ok go on” lol

  1. SO COOL! That Lilliput is so adorable! She was our favorite 🙂 Who are we kidding… they are all cool! Perhaps we need to try to set some world records…

    1. Maybe we should work together for a fun cat blog record 😀 Must research if there is something we could do as a community. Maybe most cat bloggers to meet in real life? XD

Why not meow a comment to fellow readers?
