Thank you very much!
Hey TsaoShin, Sorry to bug but I had always been curious and only now am I getting around to asking it but how did you feel when you found out Tartar Sauce *Grumpy cat* died?
TsaoShinProfessional Digital Artist
I was really saddened by the news. She was such a treasure and brought so many people so much happiness. I owe a lot of what I have now to her and I wish I could have met her
She was indeed a treasure her and Bubba (I think his name was) Both passed in the same year. All the great pets left the world in 2019 3:
