Chess LOL kitties!
“That Black’s position was in ruins was obvious to the veriest tyro.”
One of my favorite chess quotes of all time! Who said it, and what game was he talking about? (The position may help, although Sassy the kitty has introduced certain, shall we say, inaccuracies.)
I can’t believe that I have had fifty gazillion foster kittens in my house over the last two years, and this is the first time that I have thought to pose one with a chess board. If the number of hits on my blog suddenly goes way up, you can expect to see some more chess LOL-kitties…
For any of you in the Santa Cruz area, Sassy is a rambunctious little tortoiseshell, fine-boned, quite gentle (she never hissed or got upset when we brought another kitten into the household, even though that kitten hissed at her), and she likes to perch on my shoulder, where she is right now. She should be ready to go up for adoption in about a week or two. A kitten this cute is sure to be adopted quickly, so come on down to the shelter if you’re interested!
P.S. Here’s a close-up. I can’t believe I took the picture at the very instant Sassy knocked down the bishop!
“But you said the biship moovs in a diagonull!”
