Think Like a Cat and Other Useless Wastes of Time

That cat is thinking:

Oooh! Shiny! Creepy woman, staring at me! Fluffy hair. Want to scratch. Is that a bug?!? Must kill! Itch!!! Feline behaviorist, my ass! Wall...mmmmm...fascinating wall. Red and yellow are NOT good colors to be dancing above my head. Creepy woman still staring at me!! She twists whiskers! Get away!! Shiny camera, must topple. Destruction! Mmmmm, bug.


In other news, this blog has been named as one of the Ten Blogs to Read in 2008 by LISNews (I voted for the effing librarian, myself...sorry, eff!). I must say I am unbelievably chuffed, and promise to only use my powers for good. Ooooh, shiny! Destruction!

So, what do YOU think the cat is thinking?

Maughta-congratulations. I would have voted for you, if I knew how. Also this is the only blog I ever read. But I know it is the best. Maughta mom.

Handsome cat, ugly cover.

I love this site. If the attention keeps you posting hideous book covers with big-boobed aliens and creepy babies, then it's good for all of us.

The layout for the title is one of those designs that sounds great when pitched or argued for ("See, the yellow here balances the other yellow here, and they're not the same size, so it won't look too matchy-matchy, but then the red..."), but when it actually gets all laid out it looks dead and overthought.

The woman trying to watch the news through her cat is just the too-literal-by-half icing on the cake.

The cat's thinking: "I won America's Next Top Feline Model for this?"

Think like a cat? Bat at everything that dangles, hiss at people you don't like, and stare at water dripping out of the faucet? Crazy behavior for a human. The cat on the cover is cute, though.

I think the cat is thinking "Meow."

I think it's thinking "How long should I wait for the photographer to give me that treat he/she's been waving at me for the last half hour before I just pounce?"
