Why Gizmo wins the Nerf wars by default

Gizmo’s always been the silent type. Except for a little squirrel-esque chatter with her sister, she doesn’t say much. The only exception is when she’s carrying around one of her “babies”.

She’s never actually had kittens. The very first day the vet tells me a pet is old enough to be fixed, I’m there at 8am with pet and checkbook in hand. But we had a soft, smushy ball of some sort and a long time ago she started carrying … Read More »
