Anti-PZ Caturday Post!

PZ Myers has, for quite awhile now, been regularly publishing anti-Caturday posts. Well, I noticed that he forgot today so I’ve decided to use this space to show off my adorable, cuddly new fresh-from-the-shelter cats, Brendan Small and Philip J Fry. Take that, PZ!

  1. Meeowr! Luv ur kittehs! Stripes Rule! I am a kitty vet. Happy to answer any questions or help in any way! It’s a big deal to adopt two cats that might be with you for 20 years! They are very lucky kitties.

  2. Brendan Small of the dearly departed Home Movies (is he named after the character or the creator?) and Philip J Fry of the beloved Futurama. Those are some mighty sweet kitty names. Oh, and doing a search, it looks like the Brendon spells his name with an O. Intentional or a typo?

  3. Cats are fabulous. I have Katchoo, a tuxedo cat, laying in front of the keyboard as I type. She’s draped across my left arm and gets a little annoyed when the arm wiggles as I type. She’s also known as Little Ms. Crankypaws.

    Over the summer we lost one of our cats, but then we adopted a kitten we had been fostering (initially we had to tube feed her every 3 hours). I named her Clawdia. I should have named her Kali the Destroyer.

    Congrats on the new additions, and yay for shelter pets!

    Every day is Caturday in my world.
