Hope you had fun and that you enjoyed your break... does this mean that your next book is about to come out???

Whoa. At first when I looked at that cat I'm all, "Omg, that is SO photo shoped!" But now I'm not so sure...

wow, this just brought back a memory from grade 3, we read a book called "CatWings", by Ursula K. Le Guin for novel study. it was about four tabby cats that were born with of course, wings.

this cat should totally be Spidermans new arch nemesis in the up coming movie!!!

That's so awesome. Maybe his descendents will have wings and become a species of catbirds. Except they already have those. Birdcats?

Don't be too speechless Kirsten-san, the wings are just mats of fur-- no flesh or bones inside. And they'll fall off when the kitties shed. Cool-looking, but not miraculous.

On one of the "after humanity disappears" shows that were on a few months back, they imagined the skyscrapers losing their windows and outsides, and dirt would blow in and trees grow and small animals move in and then the cats that hunted them might evolve flaps of skin for gliding between buildings.

well, actually there are bones in it anonymous. but its said its from a genetic defect or poor grooming. So not that amazing. I mean, kinda cool but they just kinda look like mats. Too bad though, woulda been cool

I don't claim to be an expert (or even know anything about it), but the photo looks fake to me, personally.

That is so.... unusual. I would feel so scared to be hugging my cat one day and find two flappy parts. If the cat were a pure white persian, then it would look like a cat angel. Mine is persian chinchilla, it's white and gray.

What beautiful cats! For some reason, I have always loved angel wings, so that makes them even better! -,-
