All About Cats (and Dogs)

Animal Rescue SiteYou click the button every day, someone gives money to charity. It's as simple as that. You might as well go click it.

I have discovered that cats are the secret stars of the internet. Humans cannot get enough of taking pictures of cats, laughing at cats, and anthropomorphizing cats with all sorts of funny and sarcastic characteristics. Cats, on the other hand, can't get enough of being cute, adored, and doing stupid things we're lucky enough to catch on camera. If you can't appreciate that, you can't be my friend. So I'll post lots of pictures, and if I'm sending you to a link I'll include the title and my favorite line from the article or what have you so you know what you're getting yourself into. Grab the toilet paper now and it'll solve two potential problems from laughing extremely hard.

So I've decided to splurge and share my favorites, even though the posts are going to be astronomically long to include them all. That's why I'm going to pre-date the posts and make a link to the page. So you can choose to see funny cats instead of wading through them to get to better content. If there is any. Ha. I will note that dogs also have a lot of dedicated space, and will be represented here too. I love my puppies!
