Unfortunately this is where we come to the chief weakness in human evolution or intelligent designism (whichever you prefer I don't want to discriminate). Smart people understand two things:
1. The world can be a sucky place to live in sometimes. Why you ask? Well have you ever been in a situation where you're smarter than an individual who has authority over you? There's an innate frustration that accompanies this situation. I first became aware of this around 3rd grade when I realized I was smarter than my teacher. Since then, it's all been down hill for me. For most smart people this leads to sorrow.
3. With children you can't buy yourselves as many toys for Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/Tet/or Canada Day.
These point show us why smart people are breeding themselves out of the population, we just like things more than kids. (Note this is all tongue and cheek we don't really think that people who have a ton of kids are stupid (Husband here. I just think it's pure madness but I come from a family of three so there's that.))
All that said we love cats. They exemplify the qualities we wish more people would show. They're infinitely self-sufficient. You leave them for a week at home and they'll take care of themselves one way or another. They understand the joy of naps. They never talk back to us.
With this in mind we've started foster catting. That's right we've taken in two strays a female and its kitten (there are a lot of deadbeat cat dads out there). So with no further ado we present to you all, Midnight and Little Fighter (the little guy is Little Fighter).
Here's the link to the rest of the photo album.

Now for those of you who don't know where the name little fighter came from here's the video who inspired us.
