Two adorable orange kittens who need a home
skittery orange kittens,
color coded for excellence!
Let's face it, there's nothing cats like better than nighttime and something skittery. I'm not sure if they prefer to be alone in their skitteriness or if they like having an audience.

It turns out in my household that a dangerous thing to leave on the countertops is walnuts. Walnuts are terrifically skittery... and somehow catses that know that there are no cats on the countertops in the daytime magically manage to de-levitate walnuts from the countertop down to the nice skittery floor, where the walnuts can be fully explored for their wonderful hollow skittery sounds, late at night.

It is certainly NOT the case that the cats were ever on the countertop. How could you even think such a thing?

The good news, when you have cats, is that you're never worried about strange noises. "Oh," you think, "The cat found something new." And then you turn over and go back to sleep.

This is a test diary, and an open thread. Have at it.

Non-pooties are also welcome.

12:22 AM PT: I think I hear the cats now.

12:22 AM PT: Oh, wait, that's the dog, I think.

12:23 AM PT (Jason Libsch): Instrumentation and cats, i love it

12:23 AM PT: In case it's not obvious, we're practicing updates for liveblogging.

12:23 AM PT: Because, hmm, it seems we might be doing that shortly.

12:24 AM PT: Jason, you should teach your cat to liveblog.

12:24 AM PT: Then, the rest of us could just hang out.

12:24 AM PT: But we'd probably yell, "Toonces! Nooooooo!"

12:27 AM PT: Actually, I think my pony might be the best liveblogger.

12:27 AM PT: But, she has no facility with a keyboard.

12:27 AM PT: Maybe if I give her a pointed stick.

12:37 AM PT: On the other hand, this particular pony is devious. If I give her a pointed stick, I don't think she'll need opposable thumbs to open the gates.

12:37 AM PT: So maybe that's not a good idea.

12:38 AM PT: Guess we'll just have to run the liveblogging ourselves, then.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
