The realization has been dawning on me that as the proprietor of this here fine blog, and the sucker-who-feeds-and-cleans-up after two cats, there must be pictures of cats.
Actually, I can’t believe the shadowy liberal blog-elite have let me get away with my transgressions this long, but I guess they were busy banning Bibles or something. Nevertheless, before they start knocking on my door at four in the morning, here’s a picture of Cat Number One, Shiva.
Here’s Shiva the predator in her natural habitat, resting on top of a blanket. You can tell this isn’t just a normal cat blog picture, no sirree, as I went to extraordinary trouble and made it sepia. That’s right. Sepia. Just for you.
As you can tell from the amount and length of fur on this cat, Shiva has a hairball problem of Biblical proportions. There’s really nothing like being woken at 4:30 a.m. by the sounds of a cat gagging up a hairball right next to the bed to say “It’s going to be a fantastic day!”
