Friday post about some cat I don't know but gosh darn-it, its cute so HERE!

Sometimes J does a Friday Doggie post, and today her mom, Maya's Granny, did a Friday Cat Blogging post , and the infamous Dooce often posts about her dog on Fridays, as I'm sure many others whom I have yet to discover. Well, gosh darn it, I want to jump on the bandwagon too (it's what I do). But alas, I do not have any recent incredibly cute pictures of my boys, and they haven't done anything especially funny (except maybe when Mousy pee'd on the new memory foam mattress topper thingy which I had just bought and took out of the box. Well the pee'ing wasn't funny, but I'm sure Eric found the site of me amusing, as I was running around after the cat screaming "F@#KER! F@#KER!" at 10 o'clock at night, as he calming stood there and said "He's only a cat. We're the idiots for leaving it on the floor when we knew he likes to pee on stuff like that." Really, I'm not usually one to yell like that, but gosh darn it, my brother and SIL were due to walk in that door at any moment and that mattress topper was meant to make the AeroBed more comfortable for them!)

So anyway. Today as I was working, (yes, working! Someone reported they couldn't get to so I had to research the issue which then led me down the unstoppable path of news article surfing) when I came across this article about a cat that walks on its front paws. It made me giggle silently (because I was working afterall), plus there are pictures of cute puppies and kitties which makes it good all around fun, so I thought I'd share.

Click on the picture, and your video player should eventually pop up for some cuteness viewing pleasure (of course you will have to sit through a commercial first). If that doesn't work for you, here is the full article with links to the video. If you melt at the sound of kitten mews, turn up your speakers. mew mew

A side note that amused me: the news crew hung out there for 3 hours waiting for the cat to do its thing. Although I'm sure there work isn't all fun and games, but wouldn't it be fun to hang out at an animal shelter (no kill of course!) all afternoon?

Happy Weekend all!

(enough side comments in parentheses for y'all? What can I say? I'm a multi-tasker! I can't have a single thought, and try as I might, I don't have a filter on these fingers)

I don't have any animals of the furry or feathered variety as of yet. I have a hard enough time keeping up as it is.
