It’s no secret that dogs like to hang out with each other and play poker. But what about cats? Cats are notoriously mysterious and secretive, but The Oatmeal (previously featured here) has revealed exactly what cats do when they have time to get together: They wear festive party hats and play Hungry Hungry Hippos while snacking on sushi and Goldfish crackers.
So now we know and it’s one of the funniest things we’ve ever tried to imagine our own cats doing. Prints of this awesome illustration are available here.

Let me know what you think!
petitions for asexuals to be allowed to say “i totally aced that” whenever they misread a potentially sexualised situation
and then to just majestically sweep out of the room in a billowing cloud of purple smoke but that is optional
Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
and seeing people who actually have their shit together
Tbh you don’t really have the right to judge what somebody else is putting in their body. Poor people crave soda and get their periods and have kids who want Cheetos sometimes too. Nobody is going through your grocery cart with a fine-toothed comb. Trust me, that alone is privilege. Carefully selecting the least judgmental looking cashier at a grocery store is a real life thing people deal with. I promise.
To me, this is the same thing as saying I can’t buy something nice when I finally catch a tiny break in life. JUST BECAUSE WE’RE POOR DOESN’T MEAN WE DON’T WANT STUFF TOO. There is nothing worse than saving up for something you really want for a long time and then getting judged for it. I remember how much shit I got on here for posting about owning a MacBook (which was GIVEN to me, but I didn’t specify that because it’s clearly nobody’s business) and anyway it was just so discouraging and annoying. Like we don’t deserve to have nice things. Whatever

There’s fox lore today on Myth & Moor: “A Skulk of Foxes”
And while we’re on the subject of foxes, don’t miss Jane Yolen’s new poetry collection, Sister Fox’s Field Guide to the Writing Life. My review of the book is here; information on ordering it is here.
