Simon’s cat goes ice fishing

This is a particularly good episode of Simon’s Cat, the animation wonderfully done, as always, by Simon Tofield.  And now you can buy Simon’s Cat stuffz, too! Support Tofield and his work by buying a tee-shirt or a cool ceramic Simon.

    evil bad naughty Dr. Coyne. Telling me about the ceramic cat when I have just found out my husband just got a new job. 🙂

    I don’t mean to hijack this post by posting off subject, but I’m furious and I can’t figure out how to email Jerry: I was just listening to NPR’s “Science Friday” and caught them totally uncritically presenting a new documentary called “Escape Fire” that promotes alternative medicine as a way of fixing our abysmal health care system.

    I can find no criticism of this film. It does seem to be making the rounds at totebaggers’ central though — there was apparently another presumably uncritical “presentation” at “Talk of the Nation.”

    Here’s the link:

    I must admit, I rather expected the ice to crack….

      It’s when it cracks a mile that you got to start worrying.

        Of course! And similar concern is prudential should it be an inverted frau that’s fracturing.

    That’s brilliant. I wonder how many hours went into the splendid animation.

    But, but, but …. cats have whiskers! It’s one of their defining properties.
