Friday Cat Blogging – 3 April 2009

Are these pictures great, or what?  They make quite a pair.  On the left, Inkblot is focused intently on a deadly laser beam (outside the frame, sadly) that was apparently smuggled into the house by SMERSH.  Needless to say, it met its match.  On the right, Domino isn’t focused on anything.  She’s just sacked out on the couch, wondering why Kevin keeps waking her up with that stupid big glass eye he carries around.  Humans are so weird.

Still, not a bad week for the human-in-chief, was it?  He did some good work on nuclear arms reduction, kept the peace between France and China, met the queen of England, helped broker a surprisingly good G-20 agreement, and (though this wasn’t widely reported) won international support for the free flow of cat food.  Not bad for a human.
