Cat Blogging goes upscale!!



Simply awesome. Via Kevin Drum.

Gideon Rachman has a nice post about cats and the dems through history who love them. He adds that:
Obviously, I am a cat lover. But I have thought hard before acknowledging this on my blog. When the FT first handed out some suggestions for blog-writers, one of them was - “Do not write about your cat.”

But why not? He is a magnificent beast - far more interesting than most of the people I write about. Here is a photo of him. (I also have four children, but I’m not going to bother you with photos of them).

And actually, there is a vestigial international-relations connection to my cat. He was adopted from a cat’s home in Brussels. We named him Louis, after the then Belgian foreign minister, Louis Michel - on the grounds that both the cat and the minister were hairy, over-weight, aggressive Belgians. Michel is now EU commissioner for overseas aid; and Louis has moved to London.
That's Louis, above.

And to the Financial Times, lighten up, Francis!!

Vive Louis! Il est très joli. Il aime la bière, les moules et les frites?

Louis is a blue cat. Since I was adopted by Topaz, who is either Russian Blue or a Korat, I've become terrible fond of the blue kitties.
