Start Making Margaritas; It’s Caturday!

Why margaritas, you ask? Why not, I say! But also because today you get to look upon this adorable little kitty called a sand cat, or in fancy pants Latin, Felis margarita.

  1. He could fold down his ears and hide his whole face!

  2. Also, the markings on his face look like his eyes and nose and hanging from a string.

  3. *are hanging

  4. “I will never forget you, Margarita.”
    “I mean Rosa.”

  5. Kari Callin says:

    Okay, I’ll play:
    “My! What big ears you have!”
    “All the better to hear the blender with, my dear!” 😉

  6. Now I have another reason to love margaritas!

  7. Billy Bill says:

    Better don’t feed him after midnight….
    … oh.. and don’t throw him in the water … ^^

  8. Pouting because I won’t have a margarita until Tuesday. Smiling because there is a margarita in my future. NB to alert CO-ers: It’s one of those lunches with the Spitmeister. 😀
