Caturday, Chocolate Edition


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.

A cat encounters snow for the first time

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..
