Came across a marvelous new site while doing some research for my fortnightly blog column. This is the accurately named Stuff on My Cat, which asks people to send in pictures of their beloved kitties with various items arranged on them (food, clothes, toys, gadgets, anything will do). This sounds like a juvenile idea but it works surprisingly well. I worship cats and wouldn’t normally like them to be inconvenienced in any way, or turned into playthings for inferior beings, but this is entertaining stuff. They are such dignified, haughty creatures who value their space and privacy, and it’s fun to see some of the surly expressions on view in these photographs. As long as it’s tastefully done, I guess.
Here’s the link.
In other news, I’m going to have to stop using the T9 dictionary facility on my cellphone. I can live with “movies” being substituted by “mother”, but did you know that when you’re trying to spell “panther”, the default option provided is “panties”? No? Well it is, and it can cause much misunderstanding and embarrassment when you’re hurriedly sending someone an SMS to say you’ve bought The Pink Panther. Back to manual spelling now.
