Русские сделать это снова! (Russians Do It Again!)

Fascinating look here at some Russian Kittehs that we might otherwise nevah get to see. Kudos to Cuteporter Mira A., and thanks for the headline! What say you, Mira?

“I would like to report more cuteness coming from Russia. I do think Russians are overtaking Japanese in cute-ology. Here is some proof, I give you cats of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.”

Mira adds, “Hermitage had these portraits commissioned to celebrate their feline co-workers.”

Squee? What Is This Squee You Are Speaking Of?

So Josh Norem sends this video over, and adds “I don’t know what any of the text says, but I’m imagining it’s the Russian equivalent of “Squee.” Of course, this means me trying to do battle get all clever with my old adversary Google Translate- but in doing so, I found there is no such word.

Well, who needs words- this one will leave you speechless, anyway.

Gone Fishin’

Once in a while it’s good to just call in sick and go on down to the ol’ fishin’ hole. Grab your fishin’ buddy and don’t forget your lucky fishin’ pole iPad, then kick back and enjoy the fresh air and little whap whap whap noises.
