When someone tells you that cats can’t show facial expressions, just have them take a gander at this, where the look on the cat’s face speaks (or meows) volumes.
This CBC story explains how putting a colorful collar on a cat can help warn off birds they might prey on, as birds have good color perception.
I just like how fabulous it makes the cats look.
I usually don’t go for “fake” GIFs, but this one is strangely delightful.
This is one of those random videos on YouTube that got served up on my home page, and it delights me, so here it is again.

Why is it I sometimes freeze when it comes to writing, even on this blog where I have repeatedly demonstrated I have no issue sharing half-baked thoughts, ill-formed ideas and otherwise questionable content.

I think that’s it, actually. I don’t have a solution for this, only a vow to try harder the next time the freeze happens, and to resist posting cat gifs in place of my own words, doodlings or videos of interpretive dance.
P.S. That said, here’s one more cat gif because why the hell not at this point:
I mostly promise.
Because it’s going to take a lot of work to hit 31 posts this month.
Let sleeping cats (and chicks) lie…except for this one chick.
