I started compiling a list of cat websites and blogs to prepare for promoting the ebook of my memoir Waiting For My Cats to Die, and this caused me to go back to the website Kittenwar! In 2005, I’d posted the shot of Finnegan below, thinking no one could possibly beat this picture both in terms of cuteness and in weirdness.
I mean, look at it. Finney was on top of the armoire and I caught him just as he stuck his front paws down and his hind legs up and stretched. How is a cat pose like this even possible?? How can his back legs do that?
Here’s how he has done in the Kittenwars he’s entered into since. He’s won more than he’s lost, but still. I guess this is more weird than cute, but I still think he looks pretty adorable.
