We would buy Rock Candy at the old ZCMI. I always chose the pink ones. I remember the old wood floors and walking up the ramp to the candy counter. The rock candy then was on a string, rather than a wooden stick.
What a lovely cat! She appears to be a Maine Coon Cat with long, diluent, Calico coloring and brilliant emerald green eyes. She is a beautiful cat. You would need to give her a daily brushing, to keep her looking her regal best.
