This week's Featured User sends us all a warm "hallo" from the Netherlands. Jiskat believes that Amsterdam should be the first place we visit when we do an international Cheez Fren tour (should we get a Kickstarter going?), but not for the reason you're all thinking. She wants us to visit the Poezenboot, a floating kitteh sanctuary! I think we have an official Dutch Lolcats ambassador, Whirled Dominayshun!
E.T. the walrus was a starving orphan pup when he was discovered by Prudhoe Bay oil workers in 1982. Tacoma's Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium decided to adopt him, naming him E.T. because of a certain resemblance to the early '80s movie star.
E.T., who now weighs about 3,500 pounds, just celebrated his 30th birthday.
