Make Mine a Double

One of the most popular new drinks that the beautiful people enjoyed over the holidays is called the “Scotch Surprise.” It’s very simple, really — see recipe below:

Dash of Macallan Scotch whisky
Shake well and strain into glass
Garnish with herbs
Enjoy while kitteh pounces on you from top of cupboard.

Will you be my designated driver, Heather H.?

Thank You For Flying Air Lamb

We’ll be sproinging at an altitude of approximately three feet. Please fasten your seatbelts, and note that the captain has turned on the “no bleating” sign.

Buh-bye now, Melissa W.

His Real Name is Gilbert…

But he just doesn’t feel like a Gilbert.

See more Gilbert here, here, here, here, and oh yes, here.

She May Look Disapproving, But She’s Really Just a Giant Softie

Hope the parents are pleased, DNA.

C.O. CyberCelebrityWatch!

And from the “Where Are They Now” file:  Internet trendsetter Happycat has revealed that he is hooked on grass.  The cheeseburger-craving feline, credited with touching off the LOLcat craze, made the revelation on a recent episode of “Oprah.”

Year in Cute 2009: Why Are You Looking at Me Like That?

In 2009, our animal friends didn’t just disapprove — they sneered, snarled, grimaced, glowered, harrumphed and hachhkkthhed.  Behold, a sampling of this year’s charm school dropouts. (Click picture to view original post.)

Has anyone seen my tiger, Hobbes?


Garfi-I Said “NO!!!”, by E.L.A.

I love you, Man

According to Sender Inner Douglas W., Jones the kitteh had emergency surgery, hence the collar. Bishop the kitteh had never been apart from Jones, and when Jones got home Bishop followed him around for about an hour, and then grappled him for a kees:

One More Thing…

I Got My Hair Did

Seeing as it’s the start of a new year, I went out on a ledge and tried a new hairdresser named Fabu. But unfortunately, it seems Fabu takes styling tips from Flock of Seagulls.
