Suddenly, a Cat Dad

In case you want to shut the world out and wallow in the universe of warm fuzzies, here's a photo-heavy story for you. British filmmaker Paris Zarcilla found a strange cat under his bed that had just given birth to kittens. He's fallen deeply in love with them.

Well, "fallen in love" doesn't do it justice. Zarcilla has discovered a new plane of existence and uses words like "nirvana" and "fatherhood" and "the hidden depths of my own capacity to love." He is obviously suffering the effects of either oxytocin or toxoplasmosis. I'll vote for oxytocin. There's nothing like a tiny new family member (or five) to make one's outlook change. Read the entire thread here, and bookmark Zarcilla's Twitter feed for updates.  -via Metafilter

The Metafilter discussion on this story goes deep into the reluctance of UK residents to install window screens. It highlights how downright tropical America is in comparison. We have a lot of summer and a lot of insects. Brits, on the other hand, only open their windows a few days out of the year and find themselves invaded by neighborhood pets, foxes, and hedgehogs.

A few months ago, my family and I came home from a vacation and found a few newborn kittens on our porch. They were adorable, but we had to take them to an animal shelter.
