It’s off season on Daybreak Island, a time to repair, update, and plan for the next tourist season. Some businesses remain open, at least on a limited basis, for islanders. Maddie’s business, JJ’s House of Purrs is no exception.

If you should fall in love with one of them, no worries, they’re all available for adoption.
