Favorites: Fall Booties!

This past week started the beautiful season of fall for us here in Iowa. I say that with authority because on Wednesday I broke out the tights! And what looks better with colorful tights than cute little fall booties? We think every pretty kitty needs at the very minimum a black pair and a brown pair. Here are some of our faves this season:
