I love cats and I love eslprintables. If I had to choose between cats and eslprintables, I would choose cats. If I had to choose between cakes and cats, I´d choose cats. If I had to choose between cats and life... Well, if I didn´t have life, I wouldn´t have cats. But hey, nobody´s asking me to choose;-)
