And now. Pure, unadulterated kitten action


With Japanese soundtrack no less. Thanks to Dan. This kitten’s name is “Peter Jennings”. Yes, that makes tons of sense. [shifty eyes]

Monkey Massage

… so we’re just going to work on relaxing that scalp for a few more minutes, then it’s off to the whirlpool before the aromatherapy. Remind me again: Did you want the banana- or the coconut-scented candles?

Stiff Upper Lip and All That

What’s the difference between a cat and a Brit? One is finicky, overly concerned with grooming, emotionally reserved, impeccably mannered and enjoys a quick nip. The other is a cat.


Quite right, Groucho (black Persian) and Kelly M.!

Clunk and Dagger

Stealthily, the cunning secret agent shinnies into position.


From his vantage point, he can overhear secret conversations, read classified documents, gather vital intelligence — completely undetected.


Then suddenly, without warning — a misstep! The cunning secret agent loses his footing! In an instant, months of meticulous planning could be lost forever!

C.O. Art Gallery Watch

Opening this week at SudsSpace at SOMA, San Francisco’s only art gallery and laundromat: “The Square Root of Unconsciousness,” an installation by renowned performance artist Zamboni McHitler. In the piece, which runs 14 non-consecutive hours, McHitler offers a variety of fruit to a panel of sedated cats, who then watch as the artist performs the USA PATRIOT Act via interpretive dance.
