Yes, thefritz wins the dick! w00t! My apologies – I got in too late to set up a new Dead Pool. Which is okay; I like to give people a couple of days to prepare themselves. You know, for the rigors of a new Dead Pool. I’ll push it to next Friday and hope your favorite doesn’t croak in the next seven days.

Here, easily distractible friends, look at the kitties! Our local big cat charity has announced their snow leopard has had two kittens.

If you’re looking for something to do this afternoon, there are worse ways to spend it than watching snow leopard videos on Youtube. There isn’t much footage of them, but they are amazing. Those tails! That coat! The weirdly human faces!

The adults anyway. The cubs are just BIG, FLOOFY KITTENS. Good weekend, all!

Mom is giving the look of “harm my kid and I will murder you, veerrry slowly…”

Jr. looks like he got in the grog already.

Good weekend, all. I’ll be fortifying myself against any news of DP picks partying with Charon during this limbo-week.

I’ ran into her twice in different parts of the country, and she had a swarm of people around her both times. Valid win, ya vulture!

Stoaty, The Big Cat Sanctuary looks amazing! The cubs ARE cute as hell, and I reiterate: Mom Laila has an expression of such lethal ferocity about to be inflicted upon any fool attempting to muck with her boys that even the signal carrying the video quivers with respect.

All of the cats living in this facility are gorgeous. Thanks for the outstanding link!

If a certain supreme court justice goes on to her reward this week, I’ll consider that a win whether I pick it or not.

Now I’m goin outside to watch our weird blue norther thunderstorm.

It is amazing, Lester. If you follow them on social media, you get awesome cat pictures delivered to you on the regular.

We’ve talked about picking a milestone anniversary or birthday and booking ourselves into their on-site hotel.

I’m going to send this link to the big cat charity around. On that page, the cub facing the camera in the second picture has an expression the one often shown by my big housecat Wolf.

The snow leopard, I have to say, is probably the most beautiful animal on earth. At least for a cat lover. The Siberian tiger is a close second.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
