Earth Day is his Birthday

As an amateur-turned-professional-turned-amateur environmentalist, I tend not to celebrate (or even notice) this Gaia-honoring holiday. To me, every day is Earth Day.

However, every day is not Misha's birthday. The only cat I've ever had whose birthday I knew for sure (we got him from a coworker whose harlot kitty came home knocked up one night), Misha turns Lucky 13 today.

To join me in celebrating the Day of the Guy, please enjoy this instructive video, "An Engineer's Guide to Cats." It even contains a potential solution to global warming at the end, thus fulfilling my holiday obligation.

Since his favorite thing in the world is a new pair of (human) shoes, I might need to make a trip to DSW. Anything to keep the boy happy.

Happy birthday, Misha--live long and prosper, you special kitty!

I watched that vid yesterday and laughed until I cried. I especially liked the corporal cuddling.

China Cat Sunflower and Abby meow their birthday wishes. OK, so they don't. I'm just trying to be cute.

I love the protective gear for litter box cleaning.

Happy Birthday Misha!

From Toussaint and His Nemesis aka Kitty Crack MCGee

p.s. We didn't really care for the video, our mother doesn’t need any ideas how to torture us. Corporal cuddling indeed.
