Real Men Love Cats

But you can clearly tell how little my cats love me!

I picked this shirt up back in January when I was still in America, per my sister's recommendation. She's a jewelry designer, and sells her stuff on Etsy and in Philadelphia, and stumbled across it one day and immediately sent me a link.

Obviously, this shirt and I were made for one another.

Here's a link to my sister's shop on Etsy. I figure I have to plug her since she's more or less responsible for my owning this wonderful tee:

And here's a link to the Etsy store that sells the shirt. I was trying to take a picture where you can see the whole shirt, but with two unruly cats it's a bit impossible, plus anyone with half a brain can make out what the shirt says.

You can see it in all of its glory at the link below.

And it is glorious.

@shadesofgrey Does the wallpaper look real?
posted April 24th, 2012  
@gurry @shadesofgrey Of course the wallpaper is real. Garylicious would NEVER LIE with the Photoshops.

Love the wink of The Socks and Max seems to want to do a back flip for you. Great photo.
posted April 24th, 2012  
@brumbe By the end of this, Max did swan dive his face onto the floor about five feet and six inches below.

Awww, one big happy family! Has Socks got something in her eye?
@sueh If you invite your cat to be in your photo, then she will go away.

@gurry he is such a daredevil.

i, too, am ded from the cute @beautifulthing

@5unflow3r oh how true! whenever I want to take her picture she runs a mile!
posted April 24th, 2012  
@sdpace I know. I AM adorable, aren't I? :D
posted April 24th, 2012  
awww this is so great. I love socks winking, and the tee is great and I love anyone that loves cats and don't understand how anyone can not love them!!
posted April 24th, 2012  
Aww what a lovely family portrait! Haha all of you are too adorable!
posted April 24th, 2012  
@gurry It does..the light gradient ( I think that is the term I'm looking for...) is perfect left to right, matches the lighting on you and the cats, there isn't an outline to suggest you cut yourself out of the picture and pasted a different background in there.....the only way I might be able to tell it wasn real is the tiny sliver of light between your neck and max, the light is different there, but I would never have noticed it if you didn't tell me this was fake.

@cookie123 some people get all itchy, and teary and wheezy around the cats.
posted April 24th, 2012  
@shadesofgrey Bahhh! Thanks :) I totally forgot to take that little sliver of white out, and I realized immediately after I posted it. Now it's killinggg me! I'll fix it one day.
posted April 24th, 2012  
Oh, I love your face on that. And the wallpaper. And of course the cats :)
posted April 24th, 2012

@brumbe I know my son is one of them, but some people just don't like them and find them creepy and i don't understand that.
posted April 25th, 2012  
What a wonderful selfie. They look like they could hang out on you all day.
posted April 25th, 2012  
@cookie123 I got scratched as a young child so I really do not care for them. Also some people just do not care for dogs and that boggles my mind ;)
posted April 25th, 2012
