In Australia’s Aboriginal mythology, Tjilpa is the ancestor of the ancient totemic cat-men.  When Kazon learned of this in our recent study of feline legends and folklore, he told me to grab the flashy box (i.e., the camera) so he could show the world his impression of a totemic cat-man.  Unfortunately, Daddy fumbled with the flashy box a bit too long and Kazon grew frustrated.  He even threatened to put the bitey on me if I didn’t hurry up and get it right.  I’m sorry to say that’s when the shutter snapped, and the photo below is of The Kazon That Would Be Tjilpa as he grew increasingly exasperated by the bungling human with the camera.
