Marty left me this message:

Have Yourself a Meowy Little Christmas

These cats are hysterical. Makes me wonder what the people who create these photos do all day ... do they have a photography studio filled with cats and they just keep snapping photos? And how do they get the cats to pose like this? Somewhere out there I'll bet there's a photographer with a lot of scratch marks!
Gerry also left me a message about the site, too.
The website was started as a blog for lolcat pictures. People from all over would take a picture of their cat, pop on a caption using their own photoshop program, and submit them to the owners of the blog.
Most people I think just lucked out with the picture, rather than trying to pose their kitties, I think Marty. But some do seem to have been crazy enough to pose or dress up their kitties! Mine would never allow that! LOL
Since it became so HUGELY popular, the owners now have an lolcat generator that you can click right on the front page of the site above. You can very easily upload your crazy cat picture, and use THEIR captioning device, then submit the picture to them.
They now take that picture and put it onto their voting pages, also linked from the front page above. If the picture and caption tickles the owners fancy or gets a ton of votes, it will get moved to the esteemed front page. They move anywhere from about 3 -8 pictures daily to the front page.
However, the submissions on the voting page can be closer to 40 a day, and that is after they weed out anything inappropriate and off-color!
It is really amazing sometimes, how one little idea can blossom! The site even has t-shirts, buttons, magnets and other stuff you can buy now!
I hope that clears it up!
I try to look at all the new pictures each day on the voting page, as well as the new ones to the main page! They just make me laugh!! And, some of them just fit my own 'human' situations so well!
I'll be back later!
