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.”

“I took this picture as my fur babies were welcoming me back home after work. Kip has been featured before, but Suzan Dawg has not. I think they are both super adorable & hope you think so too! With Love, Annie.”

Oh Wow, You Shouldn’t Have.

Really, an expensive, upmarket twist tie made by Gucci, for me? Gads. (Bats it under the ‘fridge in 3, 2, 1…)

To boldly nap where no cat has napped before!

“You don’t need to be a ‘Trekkie*’ to love this cat tree. If you use this I’m Gigi- keep the cute stuff coming! (The cat is not mine, his name is Saavik according to the web site. I was looking for a cat tree for my cats when I found this amazing one.)”

Canadian Kittehs, Eh?

From Cuteporter Vanessa S: “A group of us were asked to take photos at the Durham Humane Society in Whitby, Ontario, Canada, to use at a fundraiser being held for the shelter in November of this year.” (Note: date TBD.)

“I took my Sony A57 camera & a handful of peacock feathers and ventured into the cat rooms.”

“The shelter uses a more open concept- a communal, living arrangement for the cats which includes a completely enclosed outside area off each of the rooms.”

“It really is a relaxed atmosphere for everyone.”

“They could really use some donations since they suffered a tragic fire a few years back.”

Détente

“We now have peace in the land. A truce between Bojangles (former summer houseguest, now furever kitty) has finally relinquished a spot on ‘his desk’ for the new puppeh ‘Gracie.'”

And So Then I Said To The Hoomin….

“…the litterbox needs cleaning. And how about some Petromalt for my hairballs? AND I haven’t been to the groomer in months! And I – hey! Have you heard a WORD I’ve SAID?”

TGIF

It’s been nothing but meetings and putting out fires all…week…long. Hold all my calls, I’ll have my usual Friday Martini please. And a Tynenol, I’ve got a splitting headache. On the plus side, though: I found my Nemo.
