Pigeon Boot Camp

“Listen up, maggot! Your tailfeathers are mine for the next six months! You ain’t in your mama’s nest anymore, where you roll out at noon! In this man’s army, we get up with the chickens! Now get pecking, that’s an order!”


Anry says: “Went to Milan for a few weeks and walked upon a pair of snogging pigeons, was very much amused.”

Oh. My. (2.0)

Still just those two words. Oh. My.

Flashback Friday

It appears that in the 1800s pugs decided to class it up with boas and bells.

And The Grumpy Cat Books Go To…

We had a huge response to our Grumpy Cat book contest. Thank you to everyone who took the time! We took entries up until 9AM PT this morning, then chose two at random.

They’re in the mail today, so be looking for ’em soon! And to all of you who weren’t chosen- did you know…Monday is National Dog Day? It is, in fact. Now, I’m not necessarily sayin’ we’ll have another contest that day. That’s August 26th, 2013. We might.

It’s totally possible.

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.”
