What's the story behind the black kitten?

Asked by AstroChuck (37373points) August 5th, 2008 from iPhone

Remember when you first joined Fluther and you had several jellyfish icons to select from for your avatar until you uploaded your own pic? Since jellyfish are the theme of Fluther it made sense. There was one other icon to choose from, that of the face of a black kitten. What’s the story behind that? Is this a picture of Ben’s or Andrew’s cat? Or a more sinister truth perhaps? Anybody know?

It’s not Milo.

very good question… I never thought about this! That’d be funny if it was Milo.

andrew's avatar

Some very careful attention and deduction might reveal the answer.

augustlan's avatar

Andrew…no fair! If Chuck wanted to work for the answer, he wouldn’t have asked the collective! ;)

@rob- You rock!
I was hoping for something sinister.

tinyfaery's avatar

That’s all I got.

Note to older members: any other mention of cats from the creators?

It’s Andrew’s Jerk-of-a-cat!

Wasn’t he mentioned in one of the podcasts?

Milo is an arisotocratic white cat with some subtle black here and there, plus a black tail. He looks like Maurice Chevalier and has an agent*, a manager*, a groomer*, a handler* and his own lawyer* and CPA* for business deals.

*me, *me, *me, *me, *me, and *me.

Anyone who would like an autographed pic of Milo, PM me with email address and SASE. (Small S & H fee.)

Gail, Do you supply a Certificate of Authenticity with that?

AC: Anything you want, dear heart. Just ask.

Plus a bonus hair ball, if you like.

andrew's avatar

@Andrew: MIlo is really miffed that you didn’t let his agent know.
