About Meowzy Qrush
Meowzy was born and raised in Holland and adopted two American expats. Although she enjoys napping in clean clothes, eating Gourmet food, and basking in the sun, Meowzy lives for the curiosity and adventure of the world her expat pets call "H-ow-s". She spends her time in pursuit of the mysterious red dot, to which she intends to further research the secrets it holds. In the meantime, she hosts brunches with the local birds, but she finds her guests are usually too flighty for her taste.
