Now they are elderly and ill, and can only travel in their human’s wild, colour-saturated imagination – but they continue to bring delight and iridescence to the lives of those around them. Join them on their adventures @geninepoppyloo on Instagram! … Hello dear SBTB community! I thought I’d do a very quick re-introduction to myself, by way of also introducing this post. I live in Singapore, work in the design field, drink too much coffee, and share my home with five cats. Actually, only the last point is important. The cat-human relationship has been a subject of some debate. Are cats as affectionate as…
