T.G.I.F. The Genista


Well, I’ll bet that headline got you wondering what was up with my T.G.I.F. for today. You see, a while back I was visiting one of your blogs, and I can’t for the life of me remember which one, and there was a mention that Hillary Rose was giving away one of her pastel pet pawtraits. Now that sounded cool so I headed over to her place and entered. Yes, you guessed, I won!

Hillary asked me to send her a couple of head shots and we did and here is the primary one she used…

That of course leads me to my T.G.I.F for today, it arrived and The Genista Is Fabulous!!!! We are totally thrilled.

Hillary’s home on the web is here: Genista Pawtraits and you should click on the link and read about my pawtrait. Hillary is from South Wales, U.K. and is currently taking orders for Christmas, so please do check out her work. Thanks so much Hillary, we love it!

Don’t forget to go leave a comment and vote for my pal Bailey!


So what’s your plans for the weekend? Have fun everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrr! Zip! Later!
