Lisa and I have been having a chuckle over the thought that this picture of our dear little Linguine is, unbeknown to us, an internet meme – a fad, which becomes almost inexplicably popular on the web.
This picture was taken about two years ago. I remember at the time, it was a major achievement for me to stand and balance well enough to take a picture while holding a camera in one hand and a bamboo-skewered strawberry in another and convince a cat we like to call "Fidget" to cooperate.
We posted the picture on Flickr and since then it's been viewed thousands of times and bookmarked by hundreds of people, including dozens in the last week or so.
Current theory: Linguine has secretly begun blogging.
What's not so easy to see in this photo are the genuine kitty whiskers that Robb shoved into the strawberry. I'm such a weirdo, that I pick up shed whiskers, and don't throw them in the trash.
