big cat portraits

Recently, I attended an event at Littlefield, a bar and performance space here in Brooklyn. When I arrived, I was greeted by the most awesome piece of art I had ever seen. Here is a picture of me with it, looking very pleased with myself:

Now that I finally have a working iPhone, I’m on the lookout for new apps to add. Luckily, I just found out about the greatest app of all: CatPaint!

“Davander Mobile has launched CatPaint, an app that lets you add cuteness—in feline form—to any photo on your iPhone or iPod touch. You grab a photo, choose a kitten, and then tap to place it anywhere within the image.”

A German bank robber had his request for his cat to visit him in jail denied this week. Peter Keonig, a Buddhist, claimed he couldn’t live without Gisela–especially since she is the reincarnation of his dead mother.

“In turning down the kitty-plea, the court said they respected religious freedom, but that there’s no proof that cat is in fact Keonig’s mother reborn, the Telegraph reported. The court did note he would be able to write the cat, but there’s no indication his mother retained her reading skills after transitioning to feline form.”

Good job, German court.
