I wasn’t going to post anything special for Darwin Day, simply because everyone else did, but then I got an awesome email and photo combining Darwin, cats and atheism. . .
I’ve been a longtime reader and admirer of your blog*. Thanks for doing what you do! Anyway, I thought you might appreciate this. When my partner and I moved into our house about 4 years ago, we noticed it had one of those flag mounts attached to the porch. Since we are not into sports or silly seasonal/holiday flags, it has sat empty. Well we finally got around to making our own flag. For around $10 in flag cloth, we created this beauty. Appropriately enough, we finished it today so it could be flown for the first time on Darwin’s 202nd birthday. Kitty approves.
And if you’re wondering about the kitteh:
As far as our kitteh, he is one of two orange tabbies that we have, and his name is actually Kitty. He showed up at our house as a stray about 10 years ago, and we never planned to keep him. While we were searching for his owners, we just called him Kitty. He was de-clawed and neutered, so we knew he must have a home. Well we never found his old home so he chose to adopt us, and the name Kitty just stuck. He’s a wonderfully lazy cat who has no problem sleeping under the covers to help keep you warm in the winter. He just loves people, and is probably the friendliest cat I’ve ever met. We couldn’t have found a better cat, so we are extremely glad that he found us!
