Occasional Cat Blogging

Rumor has it that teh kidz enjoy crazy cat fotos, and I came across this one I took last week. The two curled-up black cats are both 18 years old (but not litter mates), while the stretched-out grey-and-white one is actually a kitten, who showed up on our lawn last September at maybe 3 months old, and lived in one of the trees for about a week until he trusted us enough. Now he weighs about 15 pounds(!) and has pretty much taken over the place.

[Update 3/10/13 2:19 PDT:  Well, looks like teh kittehz are popular. Very cool. One thing I've always liked about people on the internets is that most of them are bona-fide animal lovers. I'll start posting more photos here and there of our pets (we actually have six cats and one dog total, but the dog and one of the cats never come inside the house) for your enjoyment.

Just so you have some names to place with the fur, the two black cats are Shadow (top) and Cleo, the giant kitten is Dexter, and the fluffy orange/white one you can just see up on the arm of the couch is Maya.]

I'm so jealous.

Glad to see you're an animal lover (and kind soul) beside a damn good writer, H. Keep at it on all fronts. Sorry to hear about you being passed for that promotion. I recently entered the "workforce", and am learning that the workplace is where some of the darkest undersides of human nature come out to play. Ain't nothing to let out the chimpanzee in us like an authority structure.

Thanks, I appreciate that. Yes, there's nothing like a corporate cage to bring out lizard-brain behavior. It's only a matter of time before we're lighting fires with eyeglasses.
