Cat Blogging

Had a great time in Cincinnati, and will be doing a couple of posts about it shortly. In the meantime, how about some cat pictures to tide you over.

Here’s Emily in a pensive mood:

And here she is on her favorite bookshelf:

Here’s Big Ol’ Isaac engaged in a favorite activity:

And here he is having declared victory over my backpack. For some reason both cats really like to sit there:

    Cats are fucking hilarious! Everything they do is designed for maximum motherfucking hilarity!

    Emily’s not pensive there, she’s observant. Obviously something Very Interesting is happening outside. (I know that look.)

    Who are you kidding? That’s not Something Very Interesting, that’s DINNER.

    This is my cat, Boris, several years ago, in Austin, sitting on a pile of newspapers, admiring his favorite toy: a handmade dodecahedral die.

    Are you planning on making a habit of cat blogging, like Kevin Drum does? Because that would be fun, well, fun to view, anyway.

    Compared to dogs, Cats use “US” as a commodity or as a lower being, while dogs think we are Superior.

    J. J. –

    Let’s say it will be a semi-regular feature.

    Jesus Christ, that’s an enormous cat.

    What do you feed him? Other cats? Children? Steroids?

    I’ve been feeding him Science Diet Light cat food for years. Honest!

    Both of my cats also love to lay on bags. Any kind of bag. If they can, they’ll try to get inside them too.

    I have to say the cats are a nice break. It’s like scrubbing my mind after all that irksome creationist stuff :)

    Maybe you should just do a cat post follow up after each of the museum installments.

    House cats are, generally, living testaments to the fact that humans make excellent servants!
