Who is Cat-Rat you might be asking? Well he’s one of the furry friends on my daughter’s favorite TV show right now. The show is called Gabby’s Dollhouse and streams on Netflix.

I was excited to watch the new season with her especially when I saw Cat-Rat remind one of the other characters on the show to wear sunscreen! [More]

That’s just the case with this skin care “hack” trending on TikTok called sunscreen contouring.
