Move Over, Spot and Isis. There’s a New Cat in The Star Trek Universe.

Move Over, Spot and Isis. There’s a New Cat in The Star Trek Universe.

Need Help, Kittehs! My Translator is Broken!

Fans of Star Trek Discovery were immediate fans of cat-loving comic Tig Notaro. She has a verrrrry dry wit and though initially her character was found on an alien planet (without a cat) and it was a guest spot planned for an episode or two, Tig scored a full-time role on the show. (She and […]

Come for the Squirrel Underpants. Stay for the Cat Masks.

I don’t visit the Archie McPhee website as often as I should, but it’s where I bought Skeezix’s tighty whiteys (aka squirrel underpants) so you know it’s a classy place. It’s been a while since I was over there, but I got an email from them regarding a new product, the cat head squirrel feeder. […]
