Elvis and Audrey are proud to welcome you to Carnival of the Cats, #126! For you reading convenience, they have divided the entries into a few categories, but all submissions are wonderful and worth reading. Next week, see the Carnival at Catmology. And for more animal goodness, visit Friday Ark, which is celebrating its 100th birthday this week.
