Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a safe and healthy holiday season full of time with those you love and making many new memories. It’s always hard to believe when a near year rolls around but 2019 has arrived and we are ready to get back in the swing of things!


Our monthly 3x3 videos are staying around in 2019 and we’re here with some great events happening in January! To kick things off in the new year, we made our way to Happy Cat Cafe, a registered animal shelter that works with Carol’s Ferals to foster adoptable cats at their facility. You can book a time to cuddle with the cats and enjoy a cup of coffee or participate in one of their special events. If you know Ross, then you know being surrounded by cats during the filming of this video made his day!
