I hope everyone had a nice weekend and didn’t find yourselves sweating like mad as I am. Yes, even Malden (just outside of Boston) is working on a heat wave, and as of this writing we’re a mere four degrees from officially being in one. Four degrees? At ten am? No problem. We’ll definitely cross 90. Luckily I only have a few of links for you coming out of the weekend. Or is that unfortunately, since once you’re done visiting the links you lose the excuse for sitting in the air conditioning. Sorry, my bad.

Again I had a hard time choosing which kitty to share with you. I had a tiny yawning kitteh that was so cute I didn’t mind yawning myself and an absolutely adorable kitteh from Slovenia, but when it was all said and done I had to pick this ferocious little beastie.
Check out the audio clips people submitted for the pic. I especially love the one by soapip.
