I think God, were He to exist, would be a “cat person”

Two cuties in one photo! Vincent peers out from the basket atop the bookshelf, while the topmost portion of our stuffed Murakami doll creeps up behind him. Who will win this fight? I’m going with the cat.
Uh-oh, battle of the hipster cats! Here’s Emmitt, about to get into some trouble with the turntable…let’s hope he can “scratch” better than that documentary by Doug Pray!
The seven-inch on the decks, meanwhile, is a Team Doyobi release on SKAM. Judging by Emmitt’s disapproving facial expression, I’d wager he can’t stand the distorted electro-grunge of Manchester’s best. “Take that, Coolfer,” he seems to be saying! 🙂
Vincent, again seeking trouble in high elevations…Believe it or not, this door is 38 feet off the ground, and I was standing atop a gigantic ladder while taking this excellent shot. When Vincent tried to descend from the precarious perch onto which I’d placed him, all in the name of artistic photography, he ended up ricocheting off my own perch, causing me to fall and black out for four hours.
The F-stop on this photo was 3.0. Or is that shutter speed?
I pulled this photo from my December 2003 archive of cat snapshots. I really like the way Emmitt appears to be contemplating something of great import: “O, this life of mine! Shall I leap from the balcony, and strike pavement below? And will I live, or die? What is death?”
There’s a reason my ex-wife called Emmitt “our four-legged philosopher friend.” 🙂
Nap time! Did you know cats sleep all day and night? (Well, at least when they’re not listening to white labels or reading Kierkegaard dissertations.)

I love cat pictures. With 2 cats you get 2x the cutness and 100x the photo ops. Can you tell I’ve got 2 cats of my own? 😉

I think God is a sucker for animals, period, especially Oscar blogging dogs.
If I may: My first cat Gandhi read Jung. Sirius still reads Freud and Orion read Leo Buscaglia.
But, yikes. We always knew sweet sharp Matt and JP were romantics, no one had to tell us. Did the Hallmark (or AOL) pod people show up and take over your site?
