What website am I thinking of?
May 12, 2020 6:15 PM   Subscribe

I have this vague memory of a website from at least ten years ago called Cat Town. It was a collection of ridiculous stories illustrated by photos of cats in hats, originally from a Japanese website. There were recurring characters and I think they revolved around the mayor, who could have been a tuxedo cat who said "doo doo doo" a lot. This is all I remember but I loved it! I hope someone else remembers this - thank you!

Best answer: it is very gratifying to hear people cheering cat town after nearly seventeen years (we counted)
and once we get over our serious capital letter shortage the little cats of cat town may have some more adventures sometime

Spatch, you cannot see me cackling in my kitchen right now, but I assure you that there is much amusement. Thank you; I needed this laugh!
