Still Life With Cat and Books

Because what is life without cats and books? Catless and bookless, that’s what.

  1. After finding Lopsided passed out for the twentieth time, Ghlaghghee, Zeus, and Kodi stage an intervention with the help of Dr. Drew for his severe nip addiction.

    Scalzi gets a restraining order against Steven Adler to prevent Lopsided from relapsing.

  2. MasterThief @ 4:

    That’s in the standard package.

    On the other hand, bacon isn’t even available as a dealer option, but must be installed by the owner.

  3. The couch had been scratched. There was no doubt as to who had done the dastardly deed. A wandering ray of sunshine had found the guilty in the act and rendered the perp to a fuzzy mound of purring asleepedness.

  4. Some redundancy in the title? “Still Cat and Books”
    would have been sufficient, surely.

  5. O Great Scalzi, what a great picture of Mighty Lopsided Cat basking in the Warm Rays of Her Most Glorious Shimmering Perfect Radiance.

    To have been so blessed, Mighty He must have performed some Valuable Service for Her. Well done, Mighty Minion!

    Note the lack such Perfect Illumination in any of those horrific pictures you post all too often of yourself. Rather than attempt to perform a Valuable Service (which we doubt is within your reach) to gain such a Boon, we suggest you simply stop posting pictures that contain you.

    The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club

  6. The Gray Area: The answer to the question has to be: less dusty.

    Amen. I just recently reactivated my basement “office.” Between the permanent-occupant cat (his anxiety requires a separate apartment) and hundreds of books, the allergens are near-crippling.

    Or just less. I miss my cat. A quiet, and heart-felt, amen to that, as well. I miss mine, too.

  7. Without cats and books, all life is a blur of REPUBLICANS and MEAT!

    (apologies to Bill Griffith)

  8. I like Republicans, meat, books, but not so much cats in my house.

    I mourn the lack of The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club award of excellence for this picture with you, John.

  9. A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, a well-worn copy of Good Omens, a cat, and thou. Actually, if thou could arrange to get me some more wine, that would be awesome.

  10. Is it wrong that I read Chang’s (who is not Chang)
    post as “…to gain such a Bacon, we suggest…”?
    Um, y’all are getting to me.

  11. I thought a still life had to be inanimate objects, otherwise it’s a portrait. Has a taxidermist gotten to your cat?

  12. Hey – that looks a lot like a few of my cats!

    We have four cats – three of which are of at least partial Maine Coon breeding. They are delightful little buggers. By “little” I mean “huge” of course as Maine Coons tend to get a bit large.

    Your little one seems quite content. I imagine it just recently destroyed some portion of your home?
