More Cat Pictures for the Secular Student Alliance!

As part of my leg of the Blogathon for SSA Week, I will post one new picture of our cats for every $100 raised! And all donations will be matched by SSA Supporters Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss — so whatever you donate, it will be doubled!

As of 10:05 am PDT: 427 Donors, $69,687.69.
As of 1:01 PDT: 431 Donors, $69,948.02

We’ve raised almost three hundred dollars in the last three hours for the Secular Student Alliance! So as promised, here are three more pictures of our cats.

We got these blankets a few weeks ago: nothing special, just $20 numbers from Bed Bath and Beyond, but they’re very soft and fuzzy and warm, and the colors are wonderful. But we didn’t realize when we got them the most important benefits of all:

a) The cats love them. They are obsessed with them. They nestle in them all the time, and Comet and Houdini nurse on them. I think the texture must be similar to mama-cat-belly or something.
b) The cats photograph against them beautifully.

Here are three photos of Talisker against the backdrop of the new blankets. I think it makes her look like she’s been painted by a Dutch master.

If you like these cat pictures, please donate to the Secular Student Alliance! Even a small donation makes a real difference. And more donations will get you more cat photos — maybe even some of Comet and Houdini nursing on the blankets!

    We have the same blanket, from Costco. Ours love it, too.

    Two of our three are mostly gray. Hilarity has been known to ensue.
