Surely @Kirk Lilwall has contributed to the Cats of BBcon thread!

He has now! Hope you're well!

Congrats on the feature Karen Tuecke! I love my polka dot bbcon socks :-)

@Elizabeth Johnson I would keep a close eye on that thread. So cute!

This year perhaps I'll be able to start a thread for House Rabbits of bbcon! =:>
