What else is there to say?

THAT is awesome.

Though I think I would be a little afraid of cats if they were as big as me... or if I was as small as them.

I love Henry Behrens.

They look so happily matched.

Ms. Moon said...

The weirdest thing to me is how they both just look like they are exactly the size they should be. You know?

Mmm, is it wrong to say that there's something not quite right about really tiny people? I'm only partly joking: there's something about this that skews our whole perspective about what it's like to be human. So a man dancing with a cat? Crikey, it's all too much. But you know what? Thank God we all don't look like me, because that would be one hell of a disaster.

Okay, this is now my favorite picture. It combines two of my major interests: midgets and cats.

Thank you for posting it!

I love this so much because I have often looked at babies and thought, "What is it like to be the same size as cats? What do cats look like to them?" But you just can't ask babies. This picture answers the question. Basically it is fucking awesome. I suspected as much.

Nigel: my mom is 5'4" and my stepdad is 6'10", so I'm fairly comfortable with a large range of human sizes and size differences, you know?

SB and May: yeah, this is sort of one of my favorite pictures yet. If you click the link for Uncertain Times, where I saw it, you'll find my favorite image blog. Go, check it out - he does more art than I do, but it's always interesting.

Have you seen Miss A's cat? that guy might be normal sized and the cat might be kitties brother or cousin!

Does Miss A have a giant cat? Personally, I have the meanest cat living. If she was my size or I hers, she would have long ago killed me.
