Weblog as Therapy

Lots of posts end up in the general category – it’s often not the best place for them, but if we forget to assign them to a category this is where they’ll be. I guess really ALL posts should go into the general category.

Cosmo

Cosmo is never going to be as chilled and friendly as Luna was but here she is in a rare chilled moment in her tunnel. Parkin is probably sat just outside shot trying to avoid eye contact with anyone but not wanting to miss out on any food opportunities!
