Cats excel in the vomiting arena.
I need this done ASAP, or whenever you can get around to it.  Tomorrow is fine.

Caller: my pet is vomiting every day.
Office: bring them in right away.  Which pet is it?
Caller: it's the cat,  Grump-wuddles.
Office: Bye. <click>
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

I actually manually rotated that image, resaved it, and re-attached it, and it STILL comes out rotated that way.

The internet is kinda dumb, I'm afraid.  We've broken it a lot.

He's a beauty.  :thumbsup:

Is there a story behind the name? Is he your security advisor?  :P
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

Just as we sifted through many, many kitten listings, we sifted through many names.  But once you gots the kitten, you best have the name, or you end up calling the cat something random that just stuck.

He is a very boy-cat kitten, adventurous and enthusiastic and athletic, and princely, and so it's "Flynn" as in "Errol Flynn".

He has long but sort of sparse fur at this point, so we're waiting impatiently to see what his coat turns out like.  He's mostly white (goes well with the furniture :P) but his tail is dark from base to tip, which keeps amusing me.  He's very pliable, considering -- he's already learned to fetch properly (he brings the toy back and drops it so you can throw it again) and to high-five, and we're teaching him to do a dance before he gets his food.

One of our older cats, a female named Xena, will jump in the air and spin around on command . . . about half the time, if you don't try to do it too often.  With cats, it's sort of easier to let them demonstrate the tricks they're partial to, and then encourage them, than it is to pick tricks ahead of time and train them.  But kittens are more malleable, in a couple of senses.
