Urban Fur: Jolson’s Revisited

As I stated previously, the Mister and I are taking a staycation. and No staycation would be complete without a visit to Jolson’s Fine Wines & Spirits. He, so as to acquire some grappa and raki. I, so as to visit my favorite brick shit house of a cat: Chupi.

He even got up close and personal for the camera!

Is it just me— or does this handsome fellow sport more than a passing resemblance to Jaws? If Richard Kiel was a cat, anyway.

Get Curly 600

My not-so-inner nerd/freak was jumping for joy upon making this discovery. So much so I had to point out my find to the Mister:
