My husband has been wanting to buy a truck for months, and sometimes he brings me his phone to view menus. While I was brainstorming cute ways to display all nine available cats at Pippi’s Place in one post, my husband walked into my office to show me a list of trucks.

Profiles show a keen attention to detail that both car and cat enthusiasts will appreciate.
Delcour said her favorite advertisement was for a cat known as Mr. Goodbar, “2023 Mini Pooper.”
His list was the last one I needed to create and I knew I wanted it to be something cool and just right for his size. I happen to own and adore a Mini Cooper and realized the “small” part fit him perfectly, so that’s what I went for! ” She said.
