There are photogenic cats. And then there is Agent Dale Cooper, for whom the cat sweater might well have been invented. Of course, before Coop – as he is known colloquially – could pursue his supermodel hobby, he had to be homed. That’s where his “failed foster,” eventual adopter mom Laura came in. Not only […]
