Yes, I am a cat. I am not wearing shades, it's the trendiest version of google glasses. You see it just helps me look deeper into the intergalactic realm to find mice. At Appedus, I just jump on the keyboard in a frenzy, to what my human slaves call "writing an article". But they never give me a mouse to play with, I wonder why. If you are reading this then you know the cat talk. You are one of us. You are just a slave to this human form. You don't know yet. You will know soon. You puny humans. (Yes the cat @producthunt is my rich cousin)
