Awww Monday: Poor Pepe!

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

Pepe has one weakness -- cat food.  He gets as close as he dares when the cats are eating, and eyes them longingly.

Pepe always looks so longingly at the cat food!
