Luna and I welcome everyone to the Weekend Cat Blogging #147 Round Up!
We are dedicating WCB this weekend to our friend Upsie, who passed away this week. Upsie and Sher were among the first to welcome us to Weekend Cat Blogging, and she will be missed. Please visit What Did You Eat to offer them your thoughts.
Kashim, Othello and Astrid are also dedicating their WCB to Upsie and Sher, and have this wonderful graphic.
