  7. Franklin says:

    Cats good, very nice.

    P.S. And yeah, personally I thought it was Caturday.

  8. de stijl says:

    Nice use of depth of field.

    The nose and whiskers are in focus. All the foreground and back- isn’t.

    Tres arty!

  9. @OzarkHillbilly: Indeed.

    @de stijl: Exactly.

    @Gustopher: Easily accomplished.

    @de stijl: Thanks. ’twas the goal.

    Seems like I read somewhere that cats sleep 15 hours a day.
    This means that by the time a cat is ten years old it’s only been awake for about 4 years.
    Or something like that.

  11. @Mister Bluster: That checks out.

    Kevin Drum posted Friday Cat Blogging this afternoon, as usual.

    Actually, that was too imperative.

    Sharing can be dangerous in this age.

    If you want to continue to share, please do. I, for one, like it a lot.
