Tuxedo Stan’s minions continue to travel around the world spreading his message of hope for neglected cats.
Estella Clifford sent the following message:
I visited a number of hill towns in Umbria, Italy, this summer, and Tuxedo Janelle accompanied me there. I have to say that TJ exhibited a keen interest in the local cuisine, which is demonstrated in the photos. Fortunately, she did a lot of walking up and down steep hills, which helped her maintain her kittenish figure. TJ and I hope to share more adventures, and we will keep you posted when we do.
