Cat o’ the day

This isn’t a regular feature, but I have a nice photo of Theo, the espresso-loving cat, sharing a moment of companionship with Gethyn, one of his staff. And since we started the day with an espresso-loving astronaut, why not finish it with an espresso-loving felid?

Giant cat head!

We shall end the week with a GIANT WOOLEN CAT HEAD, links to which were sent by at least four readers. And I have to say that if “awesome” retains any meaning as a word, this GIANT CAT HEAD fills the bill. You can find it at several sites; I’ll refer you, though, to the […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have many felids today, and a damn duck as well—with two photos (including the duck) taken by Professor Ceiling Cat. Most of the cat photos, lions (Panthera leo) come from reader Bob Lundgren: Attached are some photos of lions from my trip to Tanzania in January. The first two photos are a front and rear view of tree […]

The Borowitz report satirizes Hillary Clinton’s campaign announcement

By now you must have learned that The New Yorker’s Borowitz Report is satire, but it’s often sufficiently believable (given the dire state of everything in the U.S.) to convince the gullible that it’s real news. And, given Hillary Clinton’s campaign-announcement video—which shows her for only a brief span amidst a lot of “average Americans,” implying that she’s […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have bobcats today from reader Debra, who found one found sitting outside her house in California.  She also added another member of the group, her own cat, Woodstock. (Note: I was just reminded that I’d already posted these photos, which were taken with a cellphone in Telluride, Colorado. Well, I’ll leave them up anyway. You can’t […]

The cat that’s confusing the Internet

It’s just a simple question about this picture: I have no answer, but it’s causing a fracas, as people adduce various kinds of evidence to support one answer or another. Perhaps some day we’ll know which is correct. h/t: Doris

Caturday felid trifecta: Oz, the cat with Australia on its schnoz, World’s laziest cat, Toddler feeds cat

We have three “awesome” cats today. The first is truly a cat of distinction. SmallAnimalTalk, a site written by Dr. Anne Fawcett, a veterinarian in Sydney, posted this picture of Oz the Cat. She has a geographically accurate map of Australia on her nose!  One of the highlights for me was meeting this fellow during the vetting at the Sydney Royal Easter […]

Cat, noms, and and a chinwag with Uncle Dan

Just a reprise of my Good Friday up to 2 p.m.—while my memory is still fresh.  This includes a felid, lunch, and coffee and conversation with Dan Dennett. First, I am staying with old friends, and they have a 13-year-old cat named Garcia. He is is diffident towards strangers, including me, but it let me pet it […]

One more for the floor, barkeep. . .

It’s Good Friday, and what can make it Gooder than a cat cartoon drawn by the author of The Oatmeal (I won’t use this new site’s real name!):

Many-legged cat (again)

Remember that I’ll be in Boston from early tomorrow morning through April 9th, so posting is likely to be lighter. Like Maru, I do my best. A proper send-off requires a perigrinating cat. We have had one of these before—do you remember? Today’s catipede, which has even moar legs, comes from Bored Panda via readers […]
