He’s a kitty! Aaaaand that’s all I got for the moment.
Remember when cats were dignified?
There was a time before Garfield?
Now that’s more like the Scalzi I know!
“Ah gots nuttin’
And what’s wrong with this?
Well the unfavourable ramifications of tax spread with pet….KITTY!
….and it’s working!
Who had 41 in the “Age when John Runs Out of Ideas to Write About Pool?” Anyone?
works for me. :)
But there’s no bacon . . .
I can has hotel corridor fight?
What an interesting cat!
Considering he looks like a cross between Ceiling and Basement cat, does this make him TaoCat?
Where’s Chang when you need him?
Does anybody know if Chang’s feeling ok? We’re at comment 15 now, and no sign of him.
Cute cat! Now, what were you saying?
All hail the mighty Zeus!
The nice thing about a black and white cat is his loose hairs show up against any color.
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.
Zeusy-Weusy! (but don’t ever call him wussy, no sir).
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.
You got nothing of interest to say? The end of the world is nigh…
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!
The kitty tummy demands tickling. Never mind the hand lacerations.
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.
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)
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?”
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.
Tao Cat…a new member of the Legion of Super-Pets, then?
DC will have to shell out for the rights to this one!
