Kitteh contest: Latke

Reader David sent a photo of his daughter’s cat, named “Latke” (latkes are potato pancakes: the apotheosis of Jewish cuisine). Re this name, David said, ” When I was married, we got the cat near Passover. My ex-celebrated the holiday, I never really did.”  He adds:

Thought you might like this one.  Its a photo that I took with my iphone of my daughter’s cat who decided to get comfortable in the middle of her coat on the dining room table.

What I didn’t notice was that in the background, you can see me taking the photo (into infinity) as well as my daughter taking a photo of the same moment with her camera.

I am divorced, so seeing my girls, the cat and going over my ex-wife’s house is always a once in a lifetime moment.

Here’s a really good random one for the record.

David adds this to ensure his bona fides in the Atheist Cat Club:

I just returned from the Philippines where I spoke at their first Atheist and Agnostic Convention. I was on with Dan Barker, Jeremiah Camara, Tanya Smith, and a few others. Fun trip, but exhausting to travel so far and return so soon.

You can find his description of the convention, and his talk, on his website, Paleolibrarian.

    Not to be picky, but “got him around Passover” would explain the name “Matzoh,” not the name “Latke.” Cats named “Latke” are Chanukah cats!

    Latke – Nice!
    I don’t know what that colour/pattern is called but it always gives me the impression of being toasted.
