Meet the Kitties: 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recently rediscovered a bunch of pictures of my cats from their kitten days, and I feel I need to share some of them with you. I’ve also provided a few more recent shots for purposes of comparison. Enjoy, please!

Oh, you may notice in some of the kitten pics that their fur seems to be wet and/or greasy. That’s because I was giving them eardops for mites at the time, and neither of them were very much interested in having these drops remain in their ears.

Also: I’m a terrible photographer, and sometimes cover up the poor quality of my pics by running them through filters.

The black cat is Professor Murder, aka Pantz; the grey tabby is Sweetie Pie Jonas. They’re both named after characters on Mr. Show.

The floor doesn't always look like this; she's lying on papers that had recently been the site of a very boisterous catnip party.

*sigh* This post makes me miss animals. The kids have been poking me to get them a pet for a while, and I’ve admittedly been inclined (as long as I get them to swear up and down on our predecessors’ graves that they will TAKE CARE OF IT) but we haven’t been in a good position to do so.

God, but I do hope we get to have an animal of some kind someday. (Though god knows WHAT. Gigi is partial to reptiles and spiders, while Sneak prefers mammals, and I’ve been semi-considering the value of a lovebird or something. Ah well, multi issues.)

Well, naming ’em right is difficult, I hear.

Frankly, I am cleaning up enough poop these days that I would be happy if my cats just became breatharians and made it work.

Yeah, I know breatharianism doesn’t real but. Poop. No.

RE: Falconer

I live with Sneak, who will cough up all SORTS of names for things. I have no fear of finding an appropriate name for an animal!

At least the babbies WILL grow out of the stage where you have to clean up their poop, Falconer!

Cute photos, guessing these cats are not misogynists?

I just came across something (in the comments of a recent Skepchick post) that the “We Hunted The Mammoth For You” crowd will love…
<a href="http://discovermagazine.com/1998/apr/newwomenoftheice1430#.UnsJH1PZUms"New Women of the Ice Age. It’s from 1998, but still. (Apologies if it’s been posted before.)

Armed with short-range spears, the men appeared to have been specialists in hunting tusk-wielding mammoths and other big game, hauling home great mountains of meat to feed their dependent mates and children. At night men feasted on mammoth steaks, fed their fires with mammoth bone, and fueled their sexual fantasies with tiny figurines of women carved from mammoth ivory and fired from clay. It was the ultimate manโ€™s world.

Or was it? Over the past few months, a small team of American archeologists has raised some serious doubts.

(I also wrote a little bit on this topic on my blog a while back.)
