This Week in Cats: September 16 to 29, 2006

Due to photographer and editor laziness This Week in Cats failed to release an issue last week, so this issue covers another two weeks.

The weather has continued to alternate between warm and cold, and the cats' trend of increasing sociability and cuddliness continues in the cooling temperatures. On Wednesday the 20th, the cats indicated frustration with being left alone most of the day. Oreo hid in the basement and did not grace the humans with her presence for some time, and Treacle protested for extra food. On the 24th, Oreo had a brief adventure in a pile of cardboard boxes. She has also gotten to visit the Garage at least twice, and has expressed a desire to increase the frequency of her visits. The cats have had a few scuffles, but our photographer has not yet been able to capture any.

Words of Wisdom -- Treacle and Oreo each share a comment on this second issue of This Week in Cats:
Oreo: "Mwaaaa mwaaaaa."
Treacle: "..."

Additionally, we asked the cats to comment on the failure of This Week in Cats to make a release last week:
Oreo: "Bwaaaa! Nwaaaa maaaaaa maaaaaaaaaa! Bwraaaaa!"
Treacle: "(wrrrr)"

This Week in Cats gives a (approximately) weekly selection of photographs of Treacle and Oreo, the Whitmill family cats, along with commentary and descriptions of major events in their exciting lives. This Week in Cats also includes special features, such as the Words of Wisdom section, which relates Oreo and Treacle's own comments on the pictures and on their week.

Photographs considered especially good are right aligned for quick viewing.

I spend hours every day with these cats but had no idea their lives were so interesting until you began publishing This Week in Cats. I'm looking forward to issue #3!
