#QuotePictureVideo covers cats today. Tomorrow, dogs. Friday, walruses.
If a cat spoke, it would say things like 'Hey, I don’t see the problem here.’
- Roy Blount Jr.
I love that cats are so relaxed. I could imagine a cat saying this although they are often the cause of the problems they’d deny are there. I say “dammit cat” more than I say pretty much anything else. And sometimes language that is even more colorful than that.
Here’s what I’d love to see: A vending machine that dispenses cats for petting on your lunch break. Instead of money, the machine accepts hugs.

The cool, lithe, cynical, and unconquered lord of the housetops.
- H.P. Lovecraft
Lines like that are why H.P. Lovecraft is a renowned author and I’m a struggling blogger. Of course he only gained fame after his death so maybe there’s a chance for me too. I’ll wait.
