Are you sure LC is laughing? He may be crying for some bacon.

Jealousy rears its fuzzy head...

KateW | September 18, 2006 06:23 PM

What's that thing in the background? Some kind of alien creature?

John Scalzi | September 18, 2006 06:24 PM

It's a chew toy for the dog.

Annalee Flower Horne | September 18, 2006 06:26 PM

That is a significant amount of cat.

I like the desaturated background. Usually I find that effect very 'sears photo studio,' but it actually works here.

Nathan | September 18, 2006 06:26 PM

Isn't the thing in the foreground a doggy chew-toy?

Steve Buchheit | September 18, 2006 06:27 PM

Geez, for a second I thought we had transported to the land of the Dark Crystal.

Lopsided Cat is more trouble than the dog would want, I assure you.

With this post I see the completion of TLC set back about a week.

PNH, where are you with those hobnailed boots?

Hilary | September 18, 2006 07:41 PM

A most serious piece of cat you have there. I miss cats, my wife has allergies.

Thena | September 18, 2006 07:59 PM

I never did understand why you call that one Lopsided Cat.

John Scalzi | September 18, 2006 08:07 PM

It's because most of the time he has his head cocked to one side.

Steve Brady | September 18, 2006 08:23 PM

"What's that thing in the background? Some kind of alien creature?"

"It's a chew toy for the dog."

That doesn't really answer the question. It could be both an alien and a chew toy.

Come clean, Scalzi!

John Scalzi | September 18, 2006 08:37 PM

Note to self: Steve Brady knows too much.

Hilary | September 19, 2006 01:02 AM

Based on this picture he is not so much lopsided as slightly listing.

To be honest, I was wondering if it was a porcupine with a gland problem.

Though, to be honest, my kitty occasionally does that, too, with this great melodromatic hiss. Only over the really important political issues, like picking her up when it wasn't my duty to pick her up, or scratching the wrong spot. Come to think of it, when I really screw up, that's when she chews on my nose.

He's been partying in Montreal. It was one hell of a party, let me tell you.

To paraphrase madam ann, That cat is waiting for a chance to eat your face, make sure it's saucer is full before you fall asleep.

You know, I feel sorry for (cut+paste) "Ghlaghghee". Not because of the bacon-taping, or because of the proof positive that "yes, my owner is indeed insane," but because now everyone on the Internet thinks of her as "Bacon Cat" instead of "that cat whose name I can neither spell nor pronounce."
So, er, how *do* you pronounce "Ghlaghghee"? (Whenever I try it sounds like I'm gargling or, perhaps, choking. Or coughing up a hairball. "Bacon Cat" seems easier, if less accurate.)

Gwen | September 21, 2006 01:32 PM

Never mind. "It's pronounced 'Fluffy'" says the webpage. Very creative.
