Tracking Cat Food Consumption

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.

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.)

The Meowing

Here for your enjoyment (or not) is the sound of a lonely kitten meowing.

It was recorded with a Zoom H2 Handy Portable Stereo Recorder.

Believe it or not, this drawing was inspired by this tweet from jdavid. I like drawing cats, almost as much as I like drawing owls. I’m pretty sure I refined my owl drawing skills back in the 6th grade. Maybe next time I’ll draw an owl.

The Saddest Photo

Paddy

This is one of the saddest photos ever. This is Paddy, our friend’s cat. Paddy went blind in one eye, and then had it removed. Paddy then went blind in the other eye, and had that one removed.

While this photo makes me sad, it’s also a great photo, which makes me happy. I alternate between happy and sad. It’s such an awesome photo, but such a terrible thing…

I’ve shared this sentiment with Paddy’s owner, and it’s all good. So find sadness, but also find happiness.

Good Luck Paddy… Hang in There!
