Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome! Today we are going to look at lolcats in five of the hundreds of members of the Indo-European family of languages. Included are three "Romance" languages (Spanish, French, and Italian), one Slavic language (Russian), and one West Germanic language (German). Given that the Romanic languages descend from Vulgar Latin, the language of ancient Rome, let's acknowledge the mother tongue first.

The PWB diaries are a place to relax, share pictures and stories about our animal friends, LOL, and build community. If you like that, come on in and join us; if you don't like it, now's the time to click over to another diary. No crapping in the playground, please.
Bless their hearts, every Wednesday (Miaucoles), Zambombazo publishes "un lolcat en español, o mejor dicho, en una versión española de lolspeak..." That's where I found some of these gems.

World's richest cat
Under Italian law, animals cannot inherit directly, but they can be beneficiaries if a suitable trustee is found. An elderly widow entrusted her cat Tommaso and his fortune (€10 million) to a friend and fellow cat-lover named Stefania, who looked after the widow during her last months.
Akshully, this photo of Tommaso makes a good illustration to accompany Dante's line from the Divine Comedy: "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'entrate (All hope abandon, ye who enter in)."
"You were warned not to troll here!!!" "Ouch... leeve me alone... there's a Gonstituttion... there's a Demogracy..." "Mm.. iz better i get back on Facebook."

No critters here, but the laughs will do you good. You need not know any German.

Thanks to Яolcats for all but the last picture. It's interesting to see how much grim humor is packed into Russian lolcats, focused as they are on the impact of Teh Party on everyday life.
