Alright, holidays are over and it’s back to the grind, but at least this was a short work week. Cap it off right with these cute kitties:

• Kudos for the sly nod to NOT drinking and driving
In other drinking-related news:
I’ll be selling my wares this weekend (Saturday AND Sunday) at the Baltimore Comic Convention in the Baltimore Convention Center. Our good friend John at Ex-Boyfriend’s unofficial “sponsor bar” Bad Decisions is knocking a whopping 10% off the tab of anyone who comes in Saturday or Sunday wearing Ex-Boyfriend gear! A pretty sweet deal from the best bar and lifestyle label Charm City has to offer!
Admission to the con is super-cheap — just $25 for Saturday, $20 for Sunday, or $40 for both! If you’re a panicking Yankees fan, come out for the nerds during the day, catch the game across the street with us in the evening, and then get crunk at Bad Decisions to drown your sorrows after the O’s win! Just hop in the closest cab and say “Fells Point, corner of Fleet & Washington”!
Finally, if you’ve been itching to get a Fuzz Aldrin, Catnip Freakout, or Fidel Catro shirt for yourself or a friend, September is the month to do it. Why? Because Ex-Boyfriend has teamed with Jackson Galaxy and Spirit Essences to support the worthy cat rescue group Kitten Associates! Throughout the month of September, Ex-Boyfriend is donating $5 from the sale of tees & hoodies featuring these three designs to Kitten Associates, so snap ‘em up yourself, or help us spread the word!

Not to toot my own horn, but my cat is a 20th level wizard and he will obliterate your hit points. Better luck next time, Carlos the Dwarf.

After literally months of work, I can proudly present my new line of billfold wallets! They’re made in the U.S.A., 100% cruelty-free, and super-durable — not to mention quite stylish! The interior features a large billfold slot for cash, as well as four smaller slots for ID and credit cards.
We decided to start small with the number of designs, but will be adding to these inaugural six in the coming months. A very big thank you to all of the friends and fans we tapped for feedback and help with the design choices and color selections!
Or you can have those seafaring rapscallions the Pirate Bunnies guard your booty:
Or choose my cute little Retro Robots for the most efficient storage of funds:
Or my Classic Horror Movie Monsters could scare off any potential pick-pockets:
But if you really just need some help getting around, there’s always my handy-dandy Wonderland Metro Map:
Be sure to click through to each product page for additional pictures — some of these even feature different scenes inside the billfold!

WTF Wednesday: Faster Than You Can Say “Robotic Death Panels”, Here’s a Robot That Calmly Guides You Into the Sweet Hereafter.
You’ve heard about hospice cats, right? The adorable little reapers that offer purrs and cuddles to the mostly-dead in exchange for climate control and 2 square meals a day (or 5, if you’re a spoiled quadruped around here that refuses to eat more than 1 Tbsp in a sitting)?
Well, “Chen”, a pretentiously-mononym-ed RISD student, has developed a less cute, more terrifying version: meet the Last-Minute Robot.
Just press a button, and this cold, lifeless robotic arm will slowly move back and forth across the patient’s arm, “stroking [them] through death” while calmly introducing itself via an eerily Siri-esque voice (insert “are you there, Siri? It’s me, Matt” joke here).
1. If I’m going to kick it with zero friends and/or family surrounding/petting/hugging me, I want a goddamn cat, not a robot.

I just squee’d all over myself.
Lemme back up — a wild fire in Santa Barbara, CA (oh how I wish it was Santa Cruz so I could insert obligatory “go Banana Slugs!” exclamation here — wait, I just did!) last week forced this 3-day old fawn to bunk with this 3-week old bobcat kitten, as the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office had run out of crates large enough to fit the fawn, and the kitten made a bee-line to get some snuggle time.
Can you say “love at first awwwww”?

p.s. – In the DC-area and looking for something to do on Sunday? Swing by our booth (#620) at the Capital Pride Festival in our nation’s capital! Free swag, awesome clothing & accessories — it has the potential to be legen – wait for it – darily fabulous!

This is Tabs. He’s kind of a big deal. I think.
Full disclosure: my friends Adrienne & Tony like to send blog fodder my way because they know *gasp* that I need help finding stuff to share with you guys. I would scour the interwebz myself, but no one else is designing epically awesome t-shirts & stuff, so I get busy.
Anyway, Adrienne sent me the link to MakeUpAndBeautyBlog.com a couple weeks ago — you know, because of my well-known liquid eyeliner addiction.
So I met Tabs, a MALE cat being forced to wear chunky jewelry. I would almost want this sort of thing classified as animal abuse…but he looks so fetching!

Black-footed cats Godiva & Wyatt of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo just welcomed two new kittens into the world earlier this month, and they. Are. Awesome.
Also, not to sound all broken record-y, but if you’re in the mid-Atlantic this weekend and would like to stretch your legs and see some cute critters up-close, please come support the Maryland SPCA at their 17th annual March for the Animals at Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, Maryland this Sunday morning (4/29/2012) from 10am to 2pm! There’ll be food vendors, demonstrations, training classes, plus the Maryland SPCA’s mobile adoption center for those of you who might want to welcome a new member into your family!
Oh, right — I’ll be there too! I’ll be selling the usual suspects: tees, messenger bags, art prints, belts, etc, plus handing out TONS of free swag!
