As a certified nurse tort, I know it’s important to provide good snuggles whenever your human is sick. It’s true your noms were late and you should definitely stomp around about that as soon as they get better, but first remind them that you love them with a little snuggle, your cutest head tilt and maybe a boop on the nose.

We’re moving! Kingdom Zoya Pants aka Tort-time headquarters is moving across the river! Boy did we pick the worst time to move!
