1 In teh beginz is teh meow, and teh meow sez “Oh hai Ceiling Cat” and teh meow iz teh Ceiling Cat.

3 Him maeks alls teh cookies; no cookies iz maed wifout him.
4 Him haz teh liefs, an becuz ov teh liefs teh doodz sez “Oh hay lite.”
5 Teh lite iz pwns teh darks, but teh darks iz liek “Wtf.”     —From the LOLCat Bible

Reader Diana MacPherson is going to misread the title as Greek and then get all confused. Be that as it may, I wanted to extend thanks to several readers for their generosity in making me personal logos, along the lines of the logos of really famous scientists I showed yesterday. Two of my own were given as links in the comments, and one came by email. They all deserve public display, and I love them all. (Can you spot the common element?)

Note: I didn’t ask for logos, these were simply acts of artistic kindness.

First, from reader Jente, who got in both cats and speciation in Drosophila:


And from reader M. Janello, who worked my name into a phylogeny of the domestic cat’s closest relatives:

Finally, from reader “List of X” (the “E” is great):

List of X

Finally, last but not least, thanks also to reader Al B., who, as he’s in the food industry, sent me three pounds of shelled and unshelled almonds for my squirrels. They’re already nomming them like crazy.  Those squirrels eat better than I do!

      1. Oh yes, completely intentional. I got the idea to turn the ‘y’ into a tree and then of course it had to be the cat family.

        Someone down below said it needed the “I think” (from Darwin’s sketch) which is brilliant.

  1. These could be a rotating display on the top of the page. PZ does this with similar submissions, mostly cephalopods.

          1. Hi Merilee,
            If you go to the FB page album, they’re not cropped; just click on each one to see the full image. Enjoy!

  2. In the logos of Ceiling Cat, “I haz”. Ceiling Cat saw that the catch was good, and he decorated the site with the catch.

    By this time Ceiling Cat had finished the work he had been doing; so he haz rest too.

  3. Such talent here!

    I think I like the middle one best (though it’s hard to choose any above the others)–it just looks, well, Darwin-y.

    1. It’s meant to be a pair of boots. But I have to say that to my eye they look more like mukluks than cowboy boots.

        1. Oh great, now I see the squirrel, too, even though I meant E as a pair of cowboy boots and not a squirrel. …but there may or may not be a nightjar there…:)

              1. One person’s embarrassment is another person’s geek bragging rights. 🎉🎈
