Invasion of cats!

Over the past couple of days, I seem to have been stumbling across stuff to do with cats all over the place.

The other day, on CBC radio, I heard about Oscar the cat. Oscar lives at a nursing home in Providence, Rhode Island, and can apparently sense when people are going to die. He regularly curls up next to patients a few hours before they pass away. For a harbinger of death, he's incredibly adorable.

I also stumbled upon this site of pictures taken by a "CatCam" hung around the neck of Mr. Lee the feline. It takes shots randomly throughout his day.

I'm not sure if this is frightening or hilarious - a little bit of both, I think. Those tiny, cute kittens look terrified - as they should be. No doubt, the next legislation Harper introduces will endeavour to help the homeless by feeding them those kittens. (Sorry, that's going a bit too far - Harper clearly doesn't care that much about poor people.)

Luckily, as far as I know, despite all of these cat-related phenomena, no cats have been struck by lightning recently. The same, however, can't be said for caribou.

Anyway, here's a picture of Minty, one of my brother's cats, who I miss terribly (although I can't say I miss her shedding).

I can't believe you linked to pictures of Stephen Harper holding kittens.
Little trip down memory lane: in 2003, a Conservative press release identified Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty as an "reptilian kitten eater from another planet."
Here's link to a James Bow breakdown of the whole event:

Who can forget the magical times of 2003, when the tories were finally defeated. That press release was awfully foolish of them... everyone knows reptilian kitten eaters have much more charisma than Dalton "Mandroid" McGuinty.

I brushed a couple cat loads of hair off Minty if you want me to send you some.

Ack!! Minty looks identical to my Tweak!
