Cute Cat Monday: Rosie, the Cat Raised By Huskies

garfield hates mondays


Good morning, fellow cat fanatics! I know, I have no business being this cheery on a Monday morning. But just in case you’ve forgotten, last week we kicked off Cute Cat Monday to help lessen the dull, soul-destroying pain of Monday mornings. I know, I am a walking corporate cliche (I’ve embraced it).

I’ve got a great one for you today!
Without further ado, meet—

And eventually, she successfully integrated herself as one of the gang –



One of these things is not like the others.
