Business Cat

The other day I was playing working with our IR thermometer which just happens to have a laser built into it, and the cat decided it was some sort of toy. Obviously there are laser pointers sold as “cat toys” but dammit, the IR thermometer is a serious tool for science!

Anyway, I told my daughter that on the Internet there is a picture of a cat and the cat is wearing a tie, and behind the cat is this multicolor background, and the cat looks really serious, and he is a business cat, and the caption says “I need you to stay late tonight, we really have to catch that red dot.”

I thought it summed up the current situation nicely, but somehow I don’t think the words had the same impact as just seeing the image.

And then I felt bad for people who are sight-impaired and can’t enjoy these goofy photo memes.

And then I felt envious of people who are sight-impaired, because maybe they aren’t wasting precious minutes of their lives seeing these stupid pictures of cats/animals/people/Willy Wonka with captions.

And then I thought about building a text-only web site that just explained these pictures in great details…

And then I thought about building some sort of phone service using Twilio to explain memes to people verbally.

And then I probably ate a cookie or something and forgot all about it.

You’re welcome.

RepRap Cat

I’ve already talked about the Top 5 Places Kitten was, but since kitten (who is now a cat, and sometimes referred to as RepRap Cat) spends a lot of time in the office with me, I thought it was time for a new list…

The top 4 Macs kitten has sat upon:

  1. MacBook Pro
  2. Mac mini
  3. G4 PowerBook
  4. Mac Pro

She also spends a lot of time on the printer, which isn’t a Mac, but has a lot of buttons to press.

The only Mac missing is the iMac, and that’s because she hasn’t figured out how to sit on top of that one… yet.

Update: I snapped this picture less than two hours after posting this.

Top 5 Places Kitten was Today

This kitten, she is more insane than any kitten we’ve ever dealt with. So I present to you, the top 5 places kitten was today:

  1. Inside a tote bag
  2. On the mantle
  3. Behind the toilet
  4. In a garbage can
  5. Bathtub, between the shower curtains (while I was taking a shower)

This was 100% my wife’s idea. You see, we have two cats, and because her cat seemed to be losing weight (and because my cat eats like a pig) we were concerned that her cat was not getting any of the food we left out all day long. So when I was told to “Get your time lapse thingy!” I sprung into action and set it up to capture a day’s worth of footage of the cats eating food.

We learned that my cat certainly eats a lot (but doesn’t eat all the food) and my wife’s cat is getting a chance to eat throughout the day, so I’ll call this experiment successful.

To: Dad (Cat)

(consider it cc:by)

Madeline drew this for me… we’re not sure when, maybe a few years ago, but we just found it in a stack of papers, and she asked me to “save it” so I told her I would save a digital copy of it. So here it is. (P.S. It’s a cat.)
