  1. I am ofurjoyed :)I would purretend that I don’t usually speak in cat puns…but I can’t lie to straddlers!

  2. It’s amazing how they can look so cute…while plotting our horrible and untimely demise.

  3. I love this. I have two in fact. A twelve year old gray and white Maine Coone and a five year old American Shorthair who is also gray and white.

  4. I didn’t realize that what I needed to motivate me to repaint my apartment were cat-themed paint chips. But I should have known. Everyone should have known.

  5. I can’t believe the lack of allcaps in the comments so far, because this is bound to be the best thing I see on the internet today. If today weren’t the first sunny day Boston has seen in an age and a half, it would be the best thing I’d seen today period. (I saw it and near-instantly emailed my friend, ran upstairs to show my neighbor, and told facebook.)


  6. This is wonderful on so many levels.
    Pale Smoke’s bow tie! Ebony’s face! All the kittens!
    From this point forward, my cat is no longer white, she is cinder block.

  7. In one post you managed to make the existence of both Valentine’s Day and 50 Shades of Grey bearable, you wizardess.

  8. These furpersons are too beautiful. I really miss our Ms Dappled Dancer.
    Hopefully she’ll send us some new furpeople to adopt us later this year after we find our new home.
    Thank You Heather, for the best birthday present this year.
