CoCo Easter

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. My bunny disguise fools the birds every time. It's also a great time to start planning one's favorite outdoor nap spots as the weather gets warmer.

If your human isn't letting you get enough undisturbed nap or bird watching time, send them off with the Porsche to do one of the many club events. They seem to be popular for reasons which escape me entirely. Humans!
