Cyndi: What is cuter than a litter of kittens?
Merci: Two litters of kittens running, leaping, and having fun.
Sam: Yes, double the cute factor. Well, as long as they're not running, leaping and having fun here.
Micah: Sam, you're becoming an old grump.
Cameron: Sam does have a point. Micah's still fairly young, but most of us are seniors now.
Rusty: Yes, older, creakier and more inclined to nap more frequently.
Marcus: Well, since you all need a nap, I guess I'll introduce today's Sunday Smile. These kittens will wake you up and get you chasing your tail. Oh, sorry, humans, you won't be able to participate, but you can watch.

Percy: Molly the Wally does a Share it Sunday post on a different blog each week as a way of giving back.
Buddy: We're not guest bloggers, so we didn't write a new post for our appearance, but this Sunday we're featured. Stop by Molly the Wally's and say hello.
Sam: Are you using the new Facebook messenger app on your phone? Nick Russo (@Kingnickrusso on Twitter) has posted a short article on why he deleted the app because of strong privacy concerns - Facebook crosses the line with new facebook messenger app.
Cyndi: Oh, really? We thought they crossed the line years ago!
Rusty: Nick Russo followed it up with Response to my facebook privacy concerns. He shares a response he received to the first article. This is not an official statement by fb. It is reality shared by a fb employee.
Micah: You humans are giving up more of your privacy every day and even handing over private information of your friends and contacts to every website that wants to find all your friends on the same service.
Buddy: "Find your friends" is a polite way of saying, "we want a copy of all your friends and family's personal information so we can spam them to join our site and (possibly) to sell the email addresses.
Percy: Jan has turned off everything she can in her fb account because she wants as little of her personal information as possible to be handed over to apps.
Merci: Can someone please explain to us why every app you use on fb would need to collect personal information on you AND all your friends? Doesn't that seem odd, suspicious, malicious - whatever word you want to use? If we dogs want to learn about another dog, we just sniff their butt. And we don't niff and tell. So whatever we' sniffed out about another dog stays with us.
Cameron: That's not to say dogs don't sit around on occasion and have a butt-sniffing discovery discussion. I've heard these dogs having a good gossip session. It just doesn't go outside the family. But the way things are going, one day soon we'll be able to go online and view all our human friends' personal information, maybe even view their naked airport scans.
Marcus: Hmmm, I wonder. If we could find a way to wrap privacy in aluminum foil so no one else could see it, we could make a fortune. Who's with me on this? Uh ... guys, where are you all going? This really is a good idea.
