It’s a danderiffic episode! On Episode 11, we talk about pets! With special guest and truly special and not at all crazy “cat lady,” Mindy! Each of us delve into our own journey with pets, including cats for Mindy, dogs for Non, and horses for Jessica! Plus, we talk about animal body language, toy horses, sleeping bags for dogs, and the many, many joys of pet ownership. We’d love to hear your pet journey!
