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

nowadays she sleeps on top of the sofa. They're both good cats
and I wouldn't trade em for a million figs.

an EVEN LARGER picture if you're extra-lucky. Cable modem users
rejoice, or something.
