    James, not to step on the Drums’ rightly deserved condolences here, but “the blogosphere’s most famous cat”…?

  2. James Joyner says:

    Kevin was cat-blogging at CalPundit during the early days of the blog boom and his audience dwarfs that of any other cat-blogger. The only one that I can think of who’s even in the discussion is Nardo, Laurence Simon’s kitty.

  3. Steve Verdon says:

    James is right IMO, Jasmine and Drum’s other cat Inkblot are probably the two best known cats in the blogosphere.

    I’d have to say that Simon’s cats are at least as well known.
