Cat Von Cat sez, “That is FIVE. Five pointy bits. Excellent! Ah Ah Aaah.”  (Lightning flash, thunder crashes)

Josh Norem, The Furrtographer



  1. I was just going to say, How’d they get such an awesome pic, when I saw Josh Norem. Well, duh…

    Love me some black kittehs! Sitting in a vet’s waiting room right now with one of my four, for her annual check-up.

  2. Smartypants says:

    Josh for the win – awesome pic!

  3. He was saying, “This photo shoot is over in 5 minutes or there’s going to be trouble, bucko.”

  4. I woke up to a close-up view of a tortoiseshell “jazz paw” this morning. Is the Feline Apocalypse coming???

    Just hope I get credit for all my previous service to our Overlords….

  5. “I’ve got five reasons why you should give me noms NOW”

  6. I always count my kittyboyz’ fingers when I’m snipping nails: 1-2-3-4-GIMME YOUR FUM-5! They always reply, “I got no fums,” and try to end the process. They really do know how to count to 5, and if there are 5 fingers you gots a fum, kittyboy!

  7. To your 1st question: Yes.
    To your 2nd statement: unlikely.
    And this black magnificence has been sent as a warning for us all.
    We’re all doomed and I can’t wait!
