WHAT??!? Another one of those days with no flashbacks? Clearly, our Mom was slacking every February 16th those past six years so here’s a random post.

We’re taking Monday off and will see you again on Wednesday. Have a wonderful weekend!

01/26/2018 – Oh, Bananas

Every once in a while, we get email questions. And we love those. Lately, we’ve been asked, “How big is ___x cat___? She/he looks so big next to ___x cat___.”

We generally use that opportunity to stop and think, “Hmmm, how long has it been since we weighed ___x cat___, anyway?” But here’s the thing: Does everyone know how big an eight pound cat looks? How about a fourteen pound cat? Or a six pound cat? What if that cat is mostly floof, or has long legs, or a ton of attitude or is photographed at a weird angle? Don’t those scenarios make a difference in size?

And then, we thought, “Lots of people know the size of a banana. Yeah, we could do a size comparison next to a banana.” We gave serious thought about using a slice of bacon but you know, thickness, uncured-ness, applewood-smoked versus alder-smoked, whether or not someone ate it during photography, etc.

“How about we use your average-sized banana (eight inch length) to show how big or small our ___x cats___ are?” we said to ourselves. And we just happened to have one. A banana, that is.

Sunny thought it was a good idea.
