Look At This Cat!

Look At This Cat!
I made Look At This Cat because I figured there are a lot of cats out there that people should look at. And I don't see why that has to involve like crazy Web 2.0 crap when all you really need is some pictures of cats and the ability to say to yourself "hey, look at that, that is one great cat right there".

Cat submissions more than welcome. Suggestions and feedback, likewise.

And yes, that is good-old-fashioned courier, and no that is not an accident, and that should probably sum up the general design aesthetic of the whole thing pretty succinctly.

(The fact that I built this one day after getting a couple of kittens is pretty definitely a coincidence.)

You can never have too many places to look at cats on the internet. I and my cats approve.

Too many cats!
... by that I mean, not enough cats! Your site must grow, but where can you harvest more cat pictures? Hmm, think... think... think... think... AHA!

P.S. Muffin is awesome. And I am SO allergic!

I have a cat. I will take pictures of him and send them to you, so that others may look at him and say, "Goddamn. I sure am glad I looked at this cat."

I pee my pants when I look at this and read the cor-text.

The captions are as awesome as the cats.

Aw, you let it lapse?

Man, like a year ago. It wasn't intentional, I had a cascade of sadness after a mail forwarding failure and some miscellaneous fuckupery that led to me not finding out that the domain had expired until it was well into "it will cost a lot of money to get back" territory. So now some squatter has it and I haven't had the heart to reboot.

If nothing else I'll rehost it on a subdomain or something, though I've thought about trying to make it a "submissions welcome" sort of tumblr thing too.

If you brought it back, then people could look at this cat.

We could just keep posting cats in this thread until Cortex shuts it down...

That's a beautiful cat, dmd.

This is Linus, may he rest in peace.

I think this is the first time I've seen a domain squatting landing page in a non-English language. So weird. I guess the people of Japan really like cats.
