Cheysuli and gemini said...

Is this in honor of my wedding? I was married three years ago to Latte as well!

Nikita Cat said...

Where's me a plate?

Let's see, first a glass of the Catnip Margarita, then a little bit of the ham, and chicken, a piece of roast lizard, never had THAT before!

Or the eel for that matter, so I'll grab a bit of that, too!

Need another, Hic, Margarita, to make the unfamiliar foods go down, Hic, bet, um, bet, um, easier!

Now let me go find a spot in a Cat Tree to relax in, and watch the dancing while I eat.

I don't do dancing, myself, I just watch.

Much safer that way! ;-D

Its being really sensible if you want to buy life insurance on the best of your own health. The ramifications of hoodia gordonii with regards to reversing obesity are extremely remarkable. In some cases people reported noticing a difference as soon as they began taking Hoodia Gordonii.
