  1. All hail the mighty Zeus!

    The nice thing about a black and white cat is his loose hairs show up against any color.

  2. I like that his paw pads are black, despite the white fur. Also that he’s on the red chair (or is it couch?), showing himself off to best advantage. Cats: the original supermodels.

  3. O Great Scalzi, how wonderful to see a picture of TempCat Zeus.

    It is rare that you take a poor picture of Her Most Valuable Minions (you being the Least Valuable Minion, of course). It is all too frequent that you take such poor pictures of Her.

    Why is that? Is it that Her Shimmering Radiant Perfection interferes with your camera? Or is it that being in Her Glorious Presence makes you shake with Awe?

    Whatever the reason, get over it.

    PS – Now let’s have a picture of Mighty Lopsided Cat. And sack up, try to maintain your composure, and get a picture of Her. We have confidence (well, at least a little) that you can do it.

  4. I would like to take this moment to say:

    1. Awww, kitty!

    2. My cat, Myrddin Emrys, just got notification from the vet that his red blood cell count and platelet count are UP, UP, UP!!! WHOOT!

  5. KITTY!

    And, I just wanted to say to Chryss @24, that’s an awesome name for your cat – interestingly, those were two of my bunny’s middle names.

  6. Well, I have nothing of interest to say, either, but that doesn’t matter when Cat Admiration is due.

    (unintellible murmurs of “who’s a beauty then” repeated ad nauseum)

  7. Digging through some old boxes, I found a paper copy of “A Cat’s Guide to Human Beings”, downloaded and printed in November 1996.

    Imagine my surprise when I saw that it was written by one of my favorite authors! To wit:

    “1. Introduction: Why do we need humans?
    2. How and when to get your human’s attention.
    3. Punishing your human being.
    4. Rewarding your human: should your gift still be alive?
    5. How long should you keep your human?”

  8. Actually, two full pages… Mr. Scalzi, do you have a copy of what you wrote nearly 14 years ago? If not, I can send it.
