Why hello there. 

I'm Brad, a creative strategist living in Chicago. This is a steady stream of things I make, see and think.

Highlights from the worlds of advertising, startups, comedy, space, Internet hijinx, and my life in Chicago.

Do say hello.

There are social factors at play as well. Steve Dale,
a cat behavior  consultant and pet journalist,

told me that cat aficionados have been  particularly drawn to the Internet because they lack other public safety  valves where they can express their affection. “In the world of cats,  there is no dog park,” Dale says. “For cat owners, the dog park is the  Internet.”

emphasis mine

"For cat owners, the dog park is the Internet." is a great line!

One: “It depicts the reality of the situation on the ground while personifying the antagonists into something funny and whimsical,”

Two: “Said personification takes place in the form of fat felines, which my research shows that people tend to enjoy looking at.” See? It’s science!

So, I got a cat.
I have been mulling it over for a while now.This weekend, Monica took me to the Anti-Cruelty Society and I found Trouble, now named Louis. I told them I wanted a cat that “just wants to hang out” and they pointed me right to him. 
He just sits on the couch. Sometimes he stands up to stretch, then he sits back down. He watches TV.  
He is perfect.
If you are looking for an animal in the Chicago area, please check out the Anti-Cruelty Society. It is a really amazing place. Tons of animals and a killer staff. They can help find a pet that fits your needs rather than you blindly picking based on how a cat or dog acts when they are in a cage.   High-res
