Stop and smell the flowers

One of the nice things about living in New York is that, year-round, at just about every neighborhood deli, you can buy fresh flowers cheap.

So it's not all that uncommon for us to do that; it's nice to have flowers in the house.

Here, Mister Gato enjoys taking time to stop and smell ten dollars' worth of tulips from Bethel Gourmet Food, the Korean deli around the corner.

Okay, I'm done.

Thank goodness, he just sniffs and rubs his head on the flowers, rather than chewing the greenery; tulips can be mildly toxic to cats. If your cat has a tendency to graze, be careful about what you bring into the house.
