Been a Rough Week – how about some Animal Gifs?

Not gonna lie – I think I need a break from all the strife.  Not that I am going to roll over and let the Empire win.  I am part of the Rebellion and will stay that way.  But even as I plot my next move to undo the horrors that have been wrought upon us, I need a little bit of time to recharge, you know?  I think we all do.

So just look at these animals.  They are cute.  Make this a tiny respite in whatever battles you happen to be fighting.  Have a cup of coffee.  Or take a bunch of drugs.  I don’t care.  I’m not your mom.  As long as you are relaxed it’s cool.  Click the images to make them gif!


I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    Cute! Definitely need to step away from all the nastiness. I love the cat on the counter! My little Bell used to do that as a kitten.

    We all need that time out every now and then to just breathe and relax. Take time for you.

    I’ve actually been watching animal videos this week to make myself feel better. Sometimes it works, sometimes it makes me sad. Mostly it makes me laugh.

    I love cats! We have a neighbourhood cat that wonders around and he always comes up to me and brushes against my leg.

    I am feeling depressed right now. Its my birthday and I have no money at all. Anyway, that is not what makes me sad. I always feel that birthdays mean one year closer to being in the grave. 🙁
