Carnival of the Cats

The McKittens were so worn out from putting together the Carnival that they had to go nap in the sun, leaving me to welcome you to the Second Anniversary Edition of the Carnival of the Cats. This is all about the cats, so without further adieu…

Late entry update: (sorry, Kitties d’Oubliette, I’ve lost my photo mojo)
The Oubliette: Mira calls this game find the kitty, but I think the kitties would call it find the Mira.

That’s all for this week! (Please let me know if I missed you.) Next Sunday, the Carnival of the Cats will be at Scribblings. And every week, the Modulator‘s Friday Ark has room for any animal… but the cats are always on top!

Excellent Carnival – I still get a thrill seeing my own pics (sad really). How many entries did you get in total?

Well done, and thanks for your hard work.

We are offended by the whole “My cats are French” site. We are all French (though our blogs are canadian), and we do bathe a lot (cats and humans alike), we smell nice and are very sweet. We don’t like Jerry Lewis movies. And we believe that there is no pride whatsoever in being intolerant towards a religion or race. We’re saddened that this site is associated with the carnival of the cats.
But Music and Cats did a GREAT job, the presentation with thumbnail pictures is lovely, congratulations !
Rébecca, Nicolas (French humans), Naïs and June (cats)
