We love jigsaw puzzles. As a family, we have put together many. We like the ones that are cartoons and funny. Without pointing fingers, one of us (Skater) (What? I didn’t point!) even worked on one for the whole month he was grounded, given that he had nothing else in his life to do, except homework and taking out the trash. Good times.

Since CGMan and I are both stay-at-homes for the time being, I thought it would be nice to work on a puzzle together. Especially since the traitor cat went to live with Skater, we won’t have to worry about missing pieces. It’s been known to happen. Just when we’re drawing straws to see who has to check the litter box, we would find the piece on the floor, or in the kitchen, next to the food bowl.

I was so excited, I opened it right away to get started.
