We won!

Or rather, cute kittens completely annihilated both babies and cute puppies in the Pajiba poll I mentioned some time ago (look at the data when the poll began). Here are the final results:

And not a squid in sight.  Remember, too, that the Squidly One urged his minions to vote “none of the above.” That’s another victory for us.

And thanks to reader sasqwatch and his tech-savvy cat Butter, who haz soar pawz:

Butter, after voting early and often

  1. A veternarian told my wife to be concerned if the cat seems lethargic. We had a persian cat, the black version of this one. How can we tell?

  2. W00t! Cats win the internet. Again!

    Butter, get your head away from those evil cell phone beams. It’s making your fur all curly.

  3. Just saw this on New Zealand TV. You’ll enjoy it if you’re a cat lover.

  5. Serious question: Is this whole cute-kitten concept compatible with rational Darwinistic thinking?

    As a dog owner, I have considered the same qiestion, and wondered whether this is a malfunction of the parental instinct caused by too broad stimulus generalisation.

  6. Jerry, someone used the phrase ‘as likely as a cat that can understand algebra’ at me (naturally they were trying to belittle the scientific approach to understanding the world). Anyhow, I think cats are pretty smart – smart about things that they are motivated to take an interest in. So, the phrase made me wonder, what would happen if one took a population of smart cats and selected to reproduce only the smartest offspring; and repeated the procedure, generation after generation, after generation. How many generations would it take to produce a cat capable of understanding algebra?

    1. THREE.

  7. One must always be on ones guard against the Dark Lord and his squidly minions. My cat Hector and I are ever vigilant. We consume vast quantities of Calamari.

    Do your duty, visit your fishmonger today!!!

  8. ‘Adorable pictures of babies’ – zero per cent (to a first approximation, presumably). Cool! I could never understand the fascination with screaming hairless humanoid larvae. They can’t even purr. 😉
