Clara the Cat: Loquacious & Irresistibly Cute (Not That I’m Biased Or Anything)

I love these photos that my friend took while cat sitting Clara last weekend. The contrast between the first viciously cute meowing photo (my cat likes to talk a lot) and the second “look-at-me-I’m-so-adorable” photo is classic. How can you not like cats after seeing these photos, or after spending some quality time on this “Random Kitten Generator” site?

  1. SO cute Mal, I love the first picture. My cat proves to be good company by talking a lot too – though most of the time it’s to ask for food. The kitten generator site brought a smile to my face. 🙂

    1. So great to hear from you, Brooke! Glad you’re finding your cat to be good company, too. 🙂
