Here we get a rare glimpse of Salão’s unusual "over the shoulder" shooting technique.

You are no doubt amazed by my raw talent, yes?

In a tense moment, creative differences erupt between the photographer and crew.

I am the photographer!  I OUTRANK YOU!

Later, Salão suffers another setback when he discovers he forgot to put batteries in the camera.

Well, so much for my Pulitzer!

Laundry Tips with This Kitten

Hi, A Kitten here, with some very helpful laundry tips.

First, always divide your laundry into "softs" and "scratchies" so I know what laundry is most comfortuhbuhls roll around in.

Second, if some towels come out shredded, it’s prolly the dog’s fault, ’cause he does things like that asI’vepointedoutinthepast.

And lastly, throw some catnip leaves into EVERY and I mean EVERY drying cycle.

Um, extremely helpful [shifty eyes] Sender-Inner Blair P. and Photographer Caroline S.

Julie C., can you whip up some Béarnaise sauce real quick?

Betcha Can’t Eat EVEN One!

Here’s how our good friends, the Japanese, manage to stay fit and trim so that they can continue to hand our Cheetos-enhanced behinds to us in the cuteness department: Food so adorable you don’t want to eat it.  Go ahead — you order a plate of this stuff and see if you aren’t still staring at it three hours later.

Ah, this takes me back to the first time *I* woke up in a Dumpster.
