And in other news, this book exists.
Finally, two of my saddest interests combined into one sad, sad product: cat wine.
I get people wine before my cats can even dream of cat wine.
I genuinely feel quite sad for those people out there who have never made friends with a cat; who have never felt the unique peace of laying their ear against a perplexed-looking kitty’s chest and listening to the perfect contentment resonating from a deep purr.
Even some people that have cats (although, that’s technically incorrect, as it’s well known that cats ‘have’ humans, and not the other way around) don’t take the time to experience the bond that could be. To them, their moggies are reluctantly fed and shooed out of the way – just another peripheral to family life, like the saucepan set and garden furniture.
I love this piece so much. I miss my kitties.
For one of my followers, who requested cute pictures of my cats because “it was a bad day here in Boston and your cats are an antidote to sad.”
So here you go, I hope this helps.

Rocco and Nixon are cuddle buddies. (at Casa del Andrew y Meg)
I slipped and fell on water in the kitchen, and turned around to see these two.
You guys. I think I should stop feeding them after midnight.
ETA: I’m okay, folks! Nothing bruised my pride.
Nixon and Rocco are pals. #cats #catstagram (at Casa del Andrew y Meg)
You can almost hear the theme from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly as Nixon and Marley stare each other down.
Noelle has stared at Andrew for 10 minutes now, just waiting for him to pet her. Either that, or my #cats are experimenting with mind control. (Taken with Instagram at Casa del Andrew y Meg)
Truth. My cats don’t discriminate with their affections OR disdain.
They’re all about equal opportunity.
can this be rebloggable?!
Every morning right before the alarm goes off…
In a country with a robust (or not so robust, as things currently stand) economy, it is sometimes necessary to raise the debt ceiling, allowing the country to borrow more money.
Otherwise, the country will default on its financial obligations and won’t be able to pay for things.
The country’s defaulting will affect many things, and the government made sure to let us know how bad things could be and properly scare us.
So at first Boehner was like, “Cut your spending or else!”
There was a vote to raise the debt limit back in May, and the House was like
And the American people were like, “That’s the opposite of what we wanted.”
But a lot of parties have to agree, before we can raise the debt ceiling, so people sat down, did their research, and wrote bills.
There are two choices: Raise the taxes or cut spending. Raising the taxes affects the rich a lot, and the Republicans don’t really want that.
And the Democrats want to do some cuts but also raise taxes on the rich and protect the poor.
There were a lot of talks and debate:
Obama and Boehner tried to get to a deal but it wasn’t working:
At one point Obama walked out of a debate:
Everyone was afraid that the markets would collapse, but it didn’t really happen:
And meanwhile our courageous leaders were taking dramatic pictures, indicating concern and hard work at the same time.
And once one side makes a decision, the other side goes:
The average Americans are following the news constantly and sending angry e-mails and tweets
Then Obama and Boehner both delivered addresses, blaming the other party.
Boehner’s bill passed in the House, but the Senate Democrats killed it.
Then Senate Republicans killed Reid’s plan:
They all worked very hard to reach an agreement. A lot of compromise was made.
Now they just have to vote on it.
And we will all be happy. Or something like it.
If you’d actually like to know why the debt ceiling is important, watch this clip from West Wing.
I was going to answer an anon asking me explain the debt ceiling crisis and timeline in “easier terms.” If anon doesn’t get it after this, I can’t help.
This explanation is the best thing in the history of things. It has cats and The West Wing. I yield the floor.
And here’s a palate cleanser: Cats commandeer tanks in an attempt to take over the world - starting with one floor of an office building.
