Happy Father’s Day From The Shattered Lens!


As much as I hate to admit it, male cats are notoriously bad fathers.  9 out of 10 male cats will abandon both their mate and their kittens and many male cats end up fathering and abandoning multiple kittens with different females.  Male cats are often so resistant to taking on the demands of fatherhood that any attempt to force them to accept responsibility will lead to hissing, growling, and occasionally clawing.

Some humans, however, have done better.  In fact, there’s even a few good fathers who write for this site!  To them, we say Happy Father’s Day from the Shattered Lens!

Happy Godfather Day, too!

Happy Oscar Sunday!

Today is an unofficial holiday among the humans.  Today is the day that rich people give awards to other rich people and the whole world watches on TV!

Have a wonderful Oscar Sunday and be sure to remember: awards don’t make a film great.  Greatness makes a film great!

Plus, how can you take any awards show seriously when there’s no category for Best Animal Performance?  This year’s winner?  Keanu the Kitten!

The Academy has spoken.

This year's winner for Best Animal Actor!

This year’s winner for Best Animal Actor!
