About Skeptical Kitten

This website is property of Not Narrow or Straight, LLC and is part of the “A Science Enthusiast” network of websites and social media pages. You can learn more about our network of social media pages and websites on our patreon: patreon.com/aScienceEnthusiast.

We created Skeptical Kitten because we are science-minded cat lovers who wanted to create a fun and safe community for others to enjoy science, skepticism, cats, and more!

Be sure to link to the original content, or embed the original image if making a list. Abuse of this feature may result in the loss of access to this function, and possibly account deletion – along with all your Kittens. 🙁
