new phenomen

How did I miss this phenomen called Friday cat blogging?

The New York Times > Technology > Circuits > On Fridays, Bloggers Sometimes Retract Their Claws

You may have to register for a free NY Times account to see this article. Sorry. Here's some below.

"It brings people together," said Kevin Drum, who began the cat spotlight last year on his own blog, Calpundit (www.calpundit.com). "Both Atrios and Instapundit have done Friday catblogging. It goes to show you can agree on at least a few things."
Mr. Drum has moved on to write a blog for The Washington Monthly called Political Animal, which, despite its name, features no cats. But for him, watching bloggers step back from partisanship in favor of the warmth of cat pictures is a reminder of the March 2003 day when he discovered that his cats offered an antidote to stressful blogging.
"I'd just blogged a whole bunch of stuff about what was wrong with the world," Mr. Drum said. "And I turned around and I looked out the window, and there was one of my cats, just plonked out, looking like nothing was wrong with the world at all."

"These days, all kinds of bloggers are Friday catblogging, often playing around with the
concept..."

If you google for cat blogging there are all kinds of links...

What is the world coming to...
