My mom brought me this little present from Florence, Italy. It came from what is likely the world’s oldest operating apothecary, Santa Maria Novella.

Uh oh, there’s a cat on the front.

But there’s a dog on the back.

So, what’s in the box?

Boy, that looks fancy. Maybe it’s a pet-scented hand lotion– that would save me a step.

Hold on, let’s see what it says on the label…

Hmm. What’s it smell like?

Very nice, actually. I may just reserve it for my own paws.

Grazie, Mom.
