Smudge Had a Rough Night

I told him not to stay up for the Iowa results, but would he listen? Noooooo.

(I sent this picture to Krissy this morning and she immediately called to see if he was okay. He’s fine. I just caught him in an awkward moment.)

  1. He’s pretty much thinking what we all around about that travesty about now. Just expresses it better!

  2. Yup, that’s either a hilarious pic, or a terrifying one, no in between. So glad it falls on the hilarious side!

  3. “Wait till he watches the State of the Union.”

    Given the likely hairballs that Smudge would use to express his opinion, I’m not sure I’d encourage him watching the SOTU.

  4. Agree with “Not the Reddit Chris S” – that is one of the most “Bill The Cat” (from Bloom County) poses I’ve ever seen a cat in. Well captured, sir.

  5. So, you know how you were recently texting with other family members about how Smudge was being a noisy brat in the middle of the night? You probably don’t even want to think about what he’s going to do tonight for posting that photo of him.

    All I’m saying is that it would be a really good idea to lock your office door, your closet door, and make sure that all your shoes are safely stored in locking cabinets. It is extremely unpleasant to put on a shoe and then discover that your cat has used the shoe as his latrine.

    Not that I would know from personal experience, of course.

  6. 538 is reporting 62% of caucus results are in.
    Buttigieg: 26%
    Sanders: 25%
    Warren: 19%
    Biden: 15%
    Smudge looks how I feel…

  7. I’m trying to think of what he could possibly have been doing to land at that “awkward moment,” if it *didn’t* involve ‘nip, chewing through wires, or watching Homo sapiens Americanus Republicanus devolve into traitor-worshipping tools.

    About all I can come up with is he was having a bit of a wash and found something in his fur that tasted really, really bad.

  8. Oh gods, you don’t think he snuck off and watched the SOTU do you? That poor poor kitty…

  9. I’ve been known to say What a good looking kitty Smudge is!
    I am NOT saying that just at present.

  10. Hey Smudge looks like a couple of the Democrat candidates who made it past Iowa. Squint a little.

    I did see references to the 2030 xkcd strip elsewhere, and it is quite accurate. Unfortunately time has caught up with the strip’s first frame, and Boeing engineers are coming out of the woodwork.

  11. ROTFL! That is one of the rare times I’ve seen a cat look like that — Bill the Cat aside, of course….

  12. Warning: your new cyborg cat companion should not be exposed to random electromagnetic fields
