Tweet Last month, I laughed out loud when I saw this “Bust the Myth” promotional campaign for shelter pets. “Shelter pets are not broken. Shelter pets are not damaged goods,” declared Adopt-a-Pet.com on Facebook, next to a cartoon of an adorably disintegrating cat-and-dog pair.

My older kitteh, FitzRoy (aka #thecatinthebowl), who joined us in 2012, has quite a few Instagram cat friends who were from Lynn, so that’s how we found her and Purrkoy. The name […]

Tweet Gorgeous blogger Faux Fuchsia made me LOL with the comment she left on Tuesday’s post about my work history. It reads, in part: “In the 1st law firm I worked at in 1994, the one where I wished I’d be hit by a bus on the way to work, because it was that bad, […]

Tweet The puppets of the play Avenue Q sang, “The Internet is for porn.” But, according to my scientific research totally made-up numbers, only 40% of the Internet is for porn. Forty percent is for cats. Ten percent is for idiots to write irrational comments on news sites. Five percent is for very young people […]

Tweet I’m suddenly obsessed with this cat meme. It’s highlarious to me. On Reddit, someone suggested that this person could be the cat’s owner. Of course, cats are known for doing weird stretchy leg things. FitzRoy does both legs at once!
