CNN | Controversial chocolate Jesus exhibit canceled

I thank god every day I'm not religious.

Between the Roman Catholic Church and a statue of Jesus made of chocolate, which do I find the most offensive and reprehensible?

Those of you who know me know the answer to that. Those of you who don't can probably guess the answer based on this post. Suffice it to say, if I owned a museum, guess what I would be showcasing?

Only six left! Hurry, while supplies last!

Would you believe I've actually managed to give one kitten away? Chaps has gone off to her new home. She's gone off to live with a nice older gentleman whom I met at the vet's office last month. The Prodigal Son dropped her off this afternoon.

I can honestly say there isn't much difference between twelve cats and eleven of them.

Coming home late from work

I took this on the 2nd. I got home late and I was curious to see what kind of job the cell phone camera would do taking this shot. Not great, but it is a cell phone so I can't complain much.

This nap is brought to you by . . .

It has been a really, really long time since I took photos of the kittens. Yes, I still have all seven of the littler buggers although there are only six in the photos which follow. Woolly Bear is missing. I have no idea where he was napping.

The kittens napping on the sofa
From left to right: Stripes, Chaps, Stash, Streak, Goatee, Miss Bette

Stash asleep
Stash couldn't be bothered with me snapping pictures. He just kept on dreaming.

Miss Bette napping
Miss Bette also couldn't be bothered by me or with me.

Streak next to Stash
Streak, however, had no problem giving me the evil eye for waking her up.

Goatee looking at me while Chaps sleeps on
Goatee was trying for the evil eye but she just wasn't awake enough. That's Chaps next to her.

Meli on the window looking into the backyard
Last but not least, Meli keeping an eye on the jungle out my back door.

Izzy's back

But you didn't know she was gone, did you? Well, she is and she is now un-sexed. She's been at the vet's since Tuesday getting her little self fixed so we won't have to deal with her getting out and producing another litter. She's glad to be home and she seems to be holding up really well. So far she's dealing with the surgery and the drugs better than either Mouse or Rainbow did that first day back home.

I've informed the Prodigal Son he needs to make sure she's not left unsupervised with the kittens so she doesn't do something or have something done to her that would rip her stitches. We'll see how well that plays out.

Oh, she weight 8.3 pounds. Thought you'd want to know that.

Huh . . . I've always known I have no life. Now I have proof positive.
