Them Cats!

I realize the cats in this and similar photos aren't aware of the situation they're shown in here but I have known and loved too many dogs and cats to think that they are not capable of a sense of humor. I know better. And I know that some humans don't have a sense of humor. I still like them 'cause that's what makes them so funny.

So I love seeing these little kittens and pups in their little outfits. And, yes, I love to see the old prints of dogs playing poker.

It's all good.

This Photo Makes Me Sad

It is really sad to realize how little humans have evolved in the past century. One hundred years later, far too many people still think that stupid cat (or dog) pictures/videos are amusing and worth sharing with the rest of the world.

You naughty kittens

You've lost your mittens!

Tell us a story, tell us a story, tell us a story ...

And then we'll go to bed!
