OSINT Caturday

Do you post pictures of your cat on Saturdays, in celebration of the internet Sabbath known as #Caturday?

I Know Where Your Cat Lives is a website devoted to mapping the cats of the world, based on mapping the geo-location information in a million publicly available cat pictures found on the Internet.

If you infer a warning from this, you are correct.

This picture never had any geo-info to remove, because Apple defaults toward protecting privacy (mostly). But not all phones behave the same: check your settings.

Get Down

and play with your kittehz! It’s #Caturday!


The Guardian is one of my most reliable news sources. And I never thought of it having “funnies.” But recently, either they started or I just noticed First Dog on the Moon. Here’s today’s sample:

I subscribe to The Guardian for an ad-free experience but you can read it either way. Highly recommended.

Caturday Party Day

We had friends over today. Another couple and their kid — for introverts like us, that’s a party.

Alice actually came out and socialized a bit!

Gertrude, on the other hand, was nowhere to be found all day. Our cats have typically avoided strangers 100%. What was unusual today was Alice coming out at all, while people were here, people who were not Jill and me.

Do your cats greet company? Or hide?

The brown, brown grass of home

Click thru for the brown truth

The house we bought came with a lawn, and the local code enforces that we keep it. We asked about No Mow May and they said there’s no way for them legally to forgive enforcing the mowing requirement. We’re welcome to lobby the town council to add it for next year, though. But as it stands, if a single neighbor complained they would have to cite us.

We live on a block where someone complained about our next-door neighbor’s flower bed because a single plant she grew looked like tall, dry grass. She had to take it out! So yes, we have that guy, within a few houses of here.

Well, they can make us mow it but they cannot make us water it, or put poison on it. So it grows dandelions all May and turns brown in July unless there’s rain. OH, WELL!
