    Dlisted is saying it has died.

    Somehow I find this profoundly tragic. I think I was hoping it was some kind of messiah.

    I wonder what they're going to do with the body.

    The company web filter has Dlisted down as a "Sex site." Which in context is Eeew.

    Photos of kittens like this go around the internet every couple of years.

    What amuses me is that at Portland's biweekly Geek Trivia Night last night, one of the questions was "In the comic series TRANSMETROPOLITAN by Warren Ellis, what was the name of Spider Jerusalem's cat?" And it was one of the questions that stumped everyone.

    (Yes, the cat has a name. No, it was never mentioned in the comic.)

    Well, don't leave us hanging like that.

    Not surprised the two-faced kitten died; most of them do; though I think a few Have survived for a few years. Many of them have neurological problems and/or problems breathing and eating.

    Also: I'm curious as to what Spider's cat's name was.

    The intergoogle says Mistgeburt.

    ...I don't get it.

    As far as I can remember the cat never actually had a name in the comic.
    Apparently there was a contest to name the cat. "Mistgeburt" probably comes from "Missgeburt" which means "Nasty birth" in German.

    Those poor little kitties make me sad. Somehow I'm okay with horrible things happening to humans (kind of a cold bastard when it comes to watching the news), but I couldn't bring myself to look at more than a couple photos before my stomach got all churny.

    I've seen these two-faced cats before, poor babies. Kitties are all cute, here's a hideous Transmet human. Alexis
