    Luddy’s so old fashioned….I heard him call it kitty porn….Sour grapes if you ask me! Grow old gracefully, man….Things are different today….Deal with it!

    I never tire of telling people who are going soft over kitten and puppy calendars that those puppies and kittens are dead and stuffed so they’re easier to pose. I don’t even know if it’s true; I just enjoy telling people that.

    What kind of person couldn’t love a kitten?

    Last week was Big Cat Week on NatGeo and my wife and I decided that it didn’t matter what kind of cat is was, we just love them all

    You don’t even know if it’s true? Have you ever tried to pose a real stuffed animal? Stiff as a board. They are not posable, except as they’re being stuffed by the taxidermist.

    I guess he didn’t catch his ‘good side’.

    there were pictures made of kittens / cats and other animals made in the very early days of photograghy, (victorian england timeframe) Dressed up in clothing, various humorous poses ect. Because of the long exposure times these animals were stuffed. they dont really need to do that nowadays.

    …i think every older cat feels threatened by kittens, at least until they’ve put them in their place…Ludwig would probably have preferred the “bird of the month” calendar…

    Only cartoonists think cats need calendars.

    Arlo should have though of this before he took Luddie to the vet’s all those years ago.

    Presumably he’s been neutered. If he were intact, he’d like kittens, too…for lunch.

    Actually all the cute posed animals from postcards and pictures from the late 19th and early 20th century are almost always dead and posed. Especially the dressed-up rabbits on Easter postcards along with their friends, the Dead Chickies and Dead Duckies. Makes one look at those cute cards with an entirely different eye.
