Today we have an exciting double feature of cat videos. On the left, Domino jumps onto my lap. Exciting! On the right, Inkblot heads out to his favorite spot to.....well, I don't want to give away the ending. You'll have to watch to see what he does when gets there. It's always the same — though I'm not sure just what the attraction of that exact spot is. Plus the whole thing is accompanied by authentic neighborhood background sounds! Just remember: the key to enjoying this kind of thing is to have low expectations.
And in other news, we have this:
A poll of 2,524 households found that 47.2% of those with a cat had at least one person educated to degree level, compared with 38.4% of homes with dogs.
"We don't know why there is this discrepancy," [said Dr Jane Murray, a lecturer in feline epidemiology at Bristol University]...."Our best guess is that it's to do with working hours and perhaps commuting to work, meaning people have a less suitable lifestyle for a dog."
Pshaw. It's because people of discriminating taste prefer cats. Let's not sugar coat this in order to be politically correct. And now, on with the show!
