YAY KITTIS LUV KITTIS

or "Dear God, I've become the cliche I make fun of the most. Please strike me now in my moment of hypocrisy."

Yes, it was inevitable, but I've finally gotten pictures of the so-adorable-you'll-puke cats up and now you have the chance to see the pictures my old housemate Katy took as she was busy taking pictures of lots of things. Thrill to Martha's amazing acrobatic displays or wonder how Abbie (note: Not Abby) can clean his ass when he's so damn big. (Hint: He gets a sister to do it for him.) Yes, the wonderful world of these cats is now yours. You're oh so welcome.

Biographical note: Abbie and Martha are brother and sister, if you can believe it. They were born April 30, 1997 so they're gonna be three years old soon. Or maybe they already are by the time you read this. They're inbred, which explains a lot of things. My girlfriend at the time and I saved 'em at six weeks of age from a life of high feline leukemia risk and two hyperactive young children (Martha was real skittish around strangers for a long time.)

We were told they were sisters, so they were named Abby and Martha after the two dotty old sisters in Arsenic & Old Lace. Then the vet told us the big one was really a boy, and I'd already grown attached to calling it "Abb-ee", so the name still stuck with a slight spelling modification. Now he's named after Abbie Hoffman, another long-haired radical prone to cranky demonstrations.

Most of the time I call them Big Cat and Little Cat, or just use the all-purpose, interchangable "GIT OFF THE COUNTER NOW DAMMIT".

Abbie thinks he's a dog. We play fetch often and yes, he does bring his toys back to me so I can throw them again. Martha used to spend a lot of her time hiding in cabinets and cupboards but nowadays she sleeps on top of the sofa. They're both good cats and I wouldn't trade em for a million figs.

The only known picture of the two together when they're not fighting.

"I see dead people."

"I see food."

A good display of this cat's bulk as he lounges on His Sofa.
