[Video Link]. I'm recovering from yesterday's chemo infusion (my fifth!), and feeling kind of lousy. Jonathan Mann asked me this morning if he could write a song for me as his daily song project, and if so, if I had any theme requests. I was like, duh! Kittens, and space. And like a beautiful internet miracle, bam! Just hours later, he created the wonderful video above: "Kittens in Space."
Hugo Van Tilborg, a Boing Boing reader, pal of mine, and an avid photographer, shares this image of three kittens waking up today in Marrakech. Hugo lives and works in Morocco. What did the kittens look like last night when they were sleeping? Why, so glad you asked...
Humans love putting stuff on cats. There's stuffonmycat, there are image macros (LOLcats) with text on cats. Now, there's a new book about putting wigs on cats.
The photos in this book are equal parts cute, funny, and creepy (in that "obsessive cat lady" way), and the combination is most enjoyable. The book is well-designed for casual flipthroughs and kitteh-obsessive pageturners alike, with vivid color reproduction with which to faithfully present all those technicolor wigs. I may buy several copies for teenage, female cat-fanciers on my holiday list. Something about the brand of humor here seems particularly fitting for that age group, and I do not say that with the intent to condescend (although, hey, if the wig fits...). It's sweet, ridiculous stuff.
