Everyone Likes Cat Pictures!

Assisted suicide is not the happiest topic in the world, so I think it’s time to lighten the mood around here. And what better way to do that than with some cute animal pictures?

Let’s start with Emily keeping me company while I am at the computer:



I was making revisions to my paper about knight/knave puzzles for non-classical logics, which will be appearing shortly in The College Mathematics Journal. You subscribe, surely?

Also, yes, those are golden retriever puppies on my mouse pad. You got a problem with that?

Here’s Spider in a contemplative mood:



Spider is a long-haired cat, which means his fur has a tendency to develop knots and tangles. So, earlier in the summer, I brought him to the vet for a shave. He was sporting the lion look for a while. This picture was taken shortly after I brought him home from the vet. I’m sure that’s a look of approval.



Here they are trying to ignore each other.



They mostly get along, but they’re not friends. If you look closely, you will notice a healthy coating of cat hair on both the black suitcase in the background, as well as on the navy blue blanket. Those are two of Spider’s favorite places to sleep. Frankly, just about the only thing in that room not sporting a healthy coating of cat hair is the lovely cat bed I bought for him.

I also dog sat for some friends recently. This is Aro. He’s a Pug.



Cute little guy. Dogs are a lot of fun, but after taking care of him for a few days I was happy to go back to just having to deal with the cats.

    Glad to get some pics of the kittehs! I was worried for months whether they had worked out their issues…..it wasn’t fair of you to leave us hanging on that.

    Glad they are going well. I just recently picked up two kittens to replace my two best buddies that I lost after 18 years of companionship. So adorable, almost makes up for the repeated sleepless nights. At least you don’t have to worry over the compatibility issues, like you did with the older cats. Kittens are pretty open to other kittens. As long as they can attack them throughout the day without getting severely beat down, they are fine with it.

    Are you sure that vet is licensed… I’ve never seen that sort of a cut on a cat before! (looks like a drunken dog groomer did it) :-\

    Ahh-choo
    I’m allergic to cats.
    Pictures of cats cause volleys from me of
    pictures of sneezes.

    I have the same problem with the cat beds I get for my two cats. They’d just assume lay on an old sweatshirt of mine. I’m sure it has something to to with my scent left on it, but I’m not about to walk around all day with a cat bed strapped to my back just to give it the right stink! :-)
