Hey, found this on my computer
. No idea what I made it for, but it appears to feature an evil cat god summoned to our plane by the power of Wardenclyffe Tower. You can have it now! [Warning: autoplaying audio]
Happy Christmas Caturday.

My friend Brian Braun photographed this amazing street kitteh who lives in a parking lot, next to a dumpster in Sarasota, FL. Apparently he's been there *for years*. The cat's a badass. You can see the will to survive in its eyes.

The Black Cat Truffle, by heavenly-chocolate.com.
Below, a sneaky-cam shot of Miss Shelley Winters, the cat companion of web comic artist R. Stevens. Rich sent me a care package to cheer me up around a recent surgery, and they contained an assortment of delicious cat-shaped vegan chocolates.
The Black Cat Truffle, by heavenly-chocolate.com: "Dark chocolate ganache in the shape of a cat with sunflower seeds for ears, enrobed in dark chocolate and hand-decorated." I am enjoying its decapitated head while sipping my morning coffee out of one of R. Stevens' "Fucking Coffee" mugs.

Oh, my goodness this video
is sweet. Uploader "jefcharles" explains,
After being sent home from work the first thing I did on getting home was to check outside the back door to see if there were any cat paw prints. There weren't, so I thought I'd introduce Fletcher to the snow and film the results..
