Happy Tails: Ming Ming

Happy Tails: Ming MingWhen the Chester family’s beloved cat passed away, they decided that the best way to heal their hearts and honor their kitty’s memory was to open their home to a deserving shelter cat. Within minutes of meeting Ming Ming, the entire family was smitten with her friendly charms. And the honeymoon isn’t over!
