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. Adorabulhs! And hurrah for shelter kittehs.
    I am so pro-caturday I have a FB page for my cats. I made it so I wouldn’t spam the unwilling with pictures and videos of oh so cute, but really it’s because I’m a dork.

  3. 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?

    1. Brendon Small is also the creator of Home Movies. He is also the creator and voice for Metalacolypse (and also does the music). He is a genius and so is everything about Futurama.

  4. 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.
