Am I a bad cat parent because I photographed our male cat getting humped by our female dog, rather than rescuing said male cat?
And let’s talk about how much I like Tallulah’s new collar, courtesy of Faithful Reader Tanya. It really complements this erotic moment.
Since I am home now, I have all the time in the world to witness the ludicrous behavior of my animal companions.
Yeah. That would be Winston chomping the white butt of poor Henry. Who leaped on and baited Winston for about an hour and a half before this scene.
And speaking of animal pictures, I read an absolutely fascinating article in Vanity Fair this month. Does anybody else read Vanity Fair? Anyway, it was this whole theory on why we are a culture of cute all of a sudden.
In Japan, they have been into the cute for many, many years–it’s called kawaii–and they theorize it’s a response to WWII. And since 9/11, we have gotten into it too. The Mini Cooper is wildly popular, as is the Volkswagon Bug (which I own). The most popular websites are those cute animal sites, like Lolcats. And even animated movies meant for kids, like Up, are getting made a lot more frequently, because so many adults go to them. And you don’t need to tell me how grownups are into the Hello Kitty.
The article even pointed out how when someone dies, people now leave teddy bears and balloons at the site.
Isn’t that interesting? We really are getting all cute obsessed.
Can you think of other examples? I am riveted by stuff like this.
At any rate, my good news is I am going to get a book to proofread tomorrow. So you’ll be able to hear me complain about that soon. In a cute way.
