Fortunately for jazz lovers everywhere, Maynard (the hottest clarinet player this side of the pond), decided to ignore his animal instinct and follow instead, his bliss.


I’m very excited to announce that my Catpid won second place at the Anti-Valentines Day contest over at Dabbled!Β I waited until the last minute to enter but it paid off.Β 

If you get a chance hop on over to Dabbled and check it out. There’s always something fun going on over there.
