I approve of this meme. (thanks, Antinous!)
I wanted to share this awesome (I think) picture. My wife's co-worker (who happens to be named 'Cat'), just celebrated her birthday. Her husband sent over this special pizza order for the office to share. Pretty clever I thought. I love how they arranged the toppings for her name, and then there's the finishing touch of the pizza that looks like a cat!
So this is Cat's Cat & Cat pizzas! (that's the best I could come up with...sorry)
I'm a HUGE fan of Boing Boing! Since the site is 'Cat Friendly' I thought I would be a good place to share. Oh, and I know it's Friday and not Caturday...
Have a great day!
PBS NewsHour’s Jenny Marder wrote a really interesting feature about the abandoned pets inside the Fukushima evacuation zone in Japan. I encountered some of them when I traveled to the area with Safecast and PBS NewsHour science correspondent Miles O’Brien (our resulting PBS NewsHour report video is here).Read the rest
One of my greatest regrets about my recent trip to Japan? I didn't manage to meet Maru.
Today, there's news that provides some consolation. The story of Maru, a Scottish Fold cat of great internet fame, will soon be available in book form for English-language audiences.
In I Am Maru (out Aug 23 in hardback), the kitty's owner mugumogu "gives readers a peek into the low-key life of the world’s most famous cat," and an insider's view on all his favorite hiding places around the house: trash cans, cupboards, cereal boxes, you name it. "If it’s cozy, he’s there."
Thank you for making the internet a sweeter place, Maru. Let's hang out sometime, when you're done promoting that new Mac operating system? As one YouTube commenter put it, "Some people want to meet Justin Bieber or Barack Obama. I just want to meet this cat."
(thanks, Susannah Breslin!)
