It’s almost the end of a really horrible year. Between the election season and the deaths of so many celebrity favorites starting with David Bowie and ending (we hope) with Carrie Fisher and her beloved mother, Debbie Reynolds, we need a little laughter. Animals and their antics make us all chuckle.

Sunday night, the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver sparked an international, internet cat fight when he criticized the leader of Chechnya, Kremlin-backed Ramzan Kadyrov who posted an internet appeal to find his lost cat, a so-called toyger, a domestic cat bred to resemble a tiger cub. Last week, Kadyrov posted a message …

The recent release of the Panama Papers, the 11.5 million confidential documents exposing the hidden wealth of world leaders, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron, has caused little ripple here in the US.

Oh, Noez! I haz a Bruiser!
He showed up at my fire escape window on Friday night, just after nightprowlkitty commented that the back alleys were busy.
I gave him some meatloaf.
Didn’t see him again until Sunday night, when I made corned beef & cabbage.
Last night, I didn’t cook. Bruiser showed up anyway…and stayed all night.
Here’s what he looks like (OK, Bruiser is a gray tabbly, not a marmalade, but the attitude is the same:

I went to a local “cat show” and I was taken a back for a moment when I walked in and saw rows of cages. I guess I thought they would all be hanging out on recliners like at my house. We have an awesome recliner that has heat, massage, and was actually made in America, and it looks comfortable. I can’t actually verify that because I am nervous about sitting in it. I don’t know what will happen if I do. The overlords might punish me.

I’ve been taken hostage by cats.
Yes, the Six Ragdoll cats own me and they are FRIGGIN’ serious this time, OK?
They have demands. I need help, if I am to get out to make more money to buy them food.
They call my house KITMO.
They insist I work each day and bring home the groceries, as long as the groceries don’t include fruit or vegies.
They want you to send money too, or volunteer at your local animal shelter, or they will continue making me go to work each day and bring home the groceries (did I mention that they won’t allow fruit or vegies)?
It is spring, so lots of new kittens and puppies will be finding their way into a local Animal Shelter near you. If you can, please donate some kitten, puppy, cat or dog food, or your time to your local shelter.
