Doctor Kitten’s Laboratory

My friend L calls me in the middle of the afternoon to tell me something very important.

L: There’s a Dr. Kitten. Seriously. I passed a sign for Dr. Kitten.

Now, I had a Dr. Pain as a mentor in medical school so I am not as impressed as she feels like I should be, which means I receive a text three minutes later:

Proof of the kitten lab

Wait, Dr. Kitten has a laboratory? A lab of LOLs? Kitten lab equipment? Kitten lab personnel?

I finally understand what I missed during our conversation and I knew what I had to do.

Welcome to Dr. Kitten’s lab:

PS. While I was making this photo, I tweeted: “All those people who don’t think blogging is a real job? I’m currently filling a photo of Thomas Edison’s lab with cats.” I didn’t get a chance to break into Dr. Kitten’s lab to verify that this is where Grumpy the Cat was made and continually cloned. I’m too busy blogging to leave my house! Thank goodness for friends like L and wikicommon’s photo of Menlo Park laboratory because now I’m less likely to get arrested.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I love doctors with funny names like that!

    The summer after I was married, I had a benign cyst removed from my breast. My surgeon’s name was Dr. Pettit. Get it… Pet… Tit…

    It was just way too fitting for the occasion. I did see him again 2 years ago for varicose veins in my groin area. I believe he should go by Dr. Awkward or Dr. Anne’sPrivateParts for my sake.
