Around this time last year, I was one blog post shy of 200 for the year, and I decided to wrap things up with a big collection of Instagram cat photos. As it stands now, I'm one blog post shy of 400 for the year, and I think maybe I'll continue the tradition and finish off 2014 with another bunch of cat photos. Because everyone loves cat photos, or at least everyone who matters does. There aren't quite as many as last year; he's gotten pretty good at recognizing when I'm trying to take his picture, and then he always moves or runs off or stops doing whatever it is I wanted a photo of.
If only he had some inkling of what a cushy life it is to be an Internet celebrity cat. The world-famous Grumpy Cat is said to be worth upward of $100M, believe it or not. That would pay for a lot of bonito flakes, and a bonito flake concierge/sommelier to curate them on the cat's behalf. Believe me, I've tried to explain this opportunity more than once, but he remains as uncooperative as ever. Possibly even more so.
