Saturday cat blogging.

If you ever doubted whether I was the sort of person to post pictures of my cats on my blog, doubt no longer. That is precisely the sort of person I am. But you're about to thank me for it, because cats in things are fucking hilarious.

Exhibit A: Bella in a computer case, front and rear views. Hilarious. Note the tail.

Exhibit B: Peanut in a laundry basket. If my cat were a household appliance, she'd qualify for the energy star logo because of her low energy usage. We've only begun to explore the number of embarrassing ways we can exploit her unwillingness to move unless absolutely necessary.

Thank you and good night.

I wish I had a kitty. Stupid no pets clause in my lease. And stupid New York Court of Appeals' refusal to strike said clauses for being unconscionable as against public policy. What could be more cruel than forbidding tenants from keeping cats?

The newsletter I got today from the East Bay Humane Society is full of statistics on the health and social benefits of pet ownership! Not the "having cats will help you pick up girls" kind of social benefits, but the "kids who grow up with pets have more successful interpersonal relationships" kind. Granted, you're not a kid, but still the New York Court of Appeals is denying you an important factor in your quality of life by allowing you to be prevented from having a cat!

I just went to talk to my upstairs neighbor and wound up walking around holding her friend's chihuahua for a half hour. I always thought I wasn't crazy about small dogs, but he's just so cute and fuzzy and carryable that I really don't think I'd mind taking him to New York with me. I'm helpless in the face of anything furry.

you know what i'm not helpless in the face of? the dogs i'm currently sitting for in o-town. i shove their fuzzy faces right out of mine and holler, "i'll punch you!"

have you left for east coast glory yet? if not, safe trip! have a good time! i am very interested to hear stories of dianna excavating indian village.

Do your interactions with dogs always involve so much punching? Or threatening to punch? And if not, what's so bad about these dogs?

I'm leaving in... 11 hours. Wait, no, 10.5. Oh crap I need to pack.

So why do people keep asking you to dog-sit for them?

I know! I need to figure out what I did with the picture of Peanut under a 2-foot tower of socks, and then you can just bet I'll be submitting it.
