"Soon I will be big enough to carry MASTER around. That is when I will make my move for world domination...and be able to get my own treaties out of the cupboard."
Colonel Meow likes having his butt scratched. The stern furball was abandoned on the side of the road (by a passing space ship, I'm guessing), and rescued by the Himalayan and Persian Society. He was put up for adoption at a local Petco, where he used his powers of persuasion to make Anne Marie Avey his new master. Meow says on his Facebook page, "She cuddles me and feeds me and even sings to me which makes me happy. So happy I fall asleep."
"I don't drink coffee. But we're out of scotch."
In the past few weeks, the Colonel has become an internet sensation. In addition to welcoming thousands of "minions" to his popular Facebook page, he also paid a visit to the Seattle-based HQ of I Can Has Cheezburger, where he received minutes upon minutes of cuddles from the enraptured staff, and was interviewed by The Daily What.

The salty tongued Tribble-impersonator is a real character, whose larger-than-life purrsonality matches his out-of-this-world looks. In his latest video, he throws some serious shade at Boo the internet-popular Pomeranian, and writes (yes, I believe he wrote this himself) on his FB page:
I like to go on walks with my leash, but when that gets hard I sit down. I like my friend Boots, a stupid golden retriever who never know when I'm sneaking up. My favorite thing to do is eat. When I'm not eating, I feel like I forgot to eat so I go back to eat again. I'm really good at staring, and if I stare too long I forget what I'm doing and fall asleep. I'm really fluffy so I cough up a lot of hair balls. That scares me, so much so, that I will meow until someone comes and holds me. I'm the apartment police. So if you are going to the bathroom I might scratch and meow at the door to say, "who's in there? open up!"
Oh yeah, and he's scared of birds, too.
"Greetings minions. Soon I will be poised to take over the...DAMMIT BOOTS! You closed your eyes! #spreadthefrown"
C.M. is a real-life Bertrum Thumbcat, who has successfully used the internet to fully realize his plans of world domination. I'm still not convinced he isn't battery operated (especially after watching "We're gonna need a bigger fan"), but I'm ready to become one of his faithful recruits
