Spring's come to Lubberland Farms, so we decided to spend this week checking in on our fuzzy friends over at DeFlocked, by Jeff Corriveau.

Boy oh boy! There's a blizzard brewing here at our New York offices and I'm getting a little stir-crazy. It's that time of year-- when it's been winter for juuuust a little bit too long. I asked our cartoonists for their own experiences-- and cures for-- cabin fever and winter blues.
