And, yes, this is another post about kittens.
Okay, I’m not sorry at all BECAUSE KITTENS, OKAY. And the moment I become sorry about kittens is the moment you should call the police because obviously my body has been invaded by kitten-hating aliens, and I’ll need to be shot.
In my defense, I had every intention of writing a non-kitten-related post this week.
I even drove two hours yesterday to go to the National Asparagus Festival for the express purpose of writing about it. (Yes! That exists!)
And for the express purpose of eating deep-fried asparagus. (Yes! That also exists!)
But that story is going to have to wait. I just can’t deal with writing real things right now. My eyeballs are all red and itchy after having spent all day outside in the sun yesterday. And I’m seriously sleep-deprived as George likes to wake me up at 4 AM every morning by alternately licking my face and attacking my hands.
Plus, I have laundry to do, essays to grade and season two of Orange is the New Black to watch. (One guess as to which one of these activities will actually be completed today.)
So instead of writing a real post, I’ve decided just to share a bunch of cat-related links with you. Because what says “Have a great Sunday!” like pictures of cats crammed into costumes and really small boxes?
Besides, since I got a kitten a few weeks ago, people have been sending me kitten-related links non-stop and it just seems selfish not to share them.So here goes:
I’m pretty sure this collection of photos taken a hundred years ago is proof that the desire to dress up your cat in doll clothes is a universal, timeless desire. I’m also pretty sure this article is proof that I need some old-timey, kitten-sized doll clothes. Anyone know where I can get my hands on some? Anyone?
Speaking of cats in costumes, have you ever spent an hour looking at cat costumes online, reading the user reviews, and thinking THESE ARE MY PEOPLE. What’s that you say? No? Oh yeah, me neither.
Did you guys see these photos of this guy who goes mountain climbing with his cat? I think my cat would make an awesome mountain climber. But someone else is going to have to take her because I would seriously cry the whole time.
On a related note, I’m pretty sure I’ve experienced every single one of these things since bringing my cat home.
Pictures of cats shoved into boxes, baskets and teapots? Yes, please.
Hey, did you know Keyboard Cat has a new video after seven years? He’s obviously been using the last seven years to practice because his performance is FLAWLESS.
Umm, so I love my kitten as she is, but I feel like I’d love her a little more if she knew how to dance to Lil John.
So, I know this is a commercial, but it made me laugh until I cried this morning.
Am I crazy for wanting this cat bike basket? Wait. Don’t answer that.
Also, this kitty bicycle bell. Gah! So cute!
It’s a dress with pictures of KITTENS AND ICE CREAM on it. It would only be better if it also had pictures of beer.
I think I’m going to need this tattoo. But, like, permanently.
If there’s something I love as much as kittens, it’s ducklings. And, well, ducklings being raised with kittens? I AM DYING.
Speaking of other animals I love, I also really love guinea pigs. Especially talking ones.
And baby goats.
One animal that I’m not so fond of? Geese. Seriously, you guys, they are big feathered bullies. Here’s an article I wrote a while back for the Michigan-based blog, The Awesome Mitten, about conquering my fear of geese and other large water fowl while visiting the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary.
Oh, sorry, wasn’t I supposed to be talking about kittens? Or was I supposed to be watching Orange is the New Black? I can’t remember. But that’s okay because now I can do both. YOU GUYS, I LOVE THE INTERNET SO BAD.Have any cat or cute animal related links you feel you need to share? Have at it!
