I'm no lawbreaker
In accordance with The International Internet Code of Conduct, Section XII, Subsection III, Paragraph II, stating that "all websites of whatever content or media, now known or hereafter devised, shall contain a minimum of one (1) picture of a cat within thirty (30) days of inception."
I present Widget!
To the extent that any cat can be said to answer to their names, Widget is equally responsive to: The Widge, Widger, Widgerific, Squidge, Squidge-girl, Squishy, Tank, The Barge, and What the Fuck. The last must be yelled at hi decibels after hearing something crash in the kitchen...after which, Widget comes flying into the room (stopping 4 feet beyond where she meant to) and stares at you with a proud look that I interpret as "You wanted that stuff on the floor, didn't you?"
What you can't tell from the picture are 2 things:
1. Widget is a very fat cat. Her weight is accentuated by her freakishly squat legs and small frame.
2. Widget is incompetent...at being a cat. She falls short of things she leaps for. She rolls off of furniture while sleeping and always looks around trying to figure out who pushed her. Most cats are able to walk on a dresser or other piece of furniture and delicately pick their way through any items that might be there. Widget just takes the shortest path without regard for what gets knocked down.
Having said all that, she's very entertaining.
Update: I have just been reminded that, on occasion, she is also known as Stink-but and Dingleberry-Cat.
