Friday the 23rd (that’s tomorrow) be sure to check out this alleycat. Starts at Cool Guy Park a.k.a. Hobo Murder Slope.
This is the first Slovenian alleycat. Via the first Slovenian blog Muslauf. Get familiar, it is a good blog. Add it to your RSS! I think this may have already happened, but I dig the flier and look forward to seeing results from Slovenia’s first ever alleycat.
