Toys for kittens!

We haven't even begun to sample yet, but we already have toys picked out for the KMP kittens! Toys before science. Yup.

When your Naegleria is bigger than you, Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis is the least of your worries.

These fabulous microbe-shaped critters, modeled here by not-to-scale cat figures, include the beaver fever parasite, E. coli, and a delightful variety of flagellate free-living protists. They're made by Etsy seller Mycrobe and are stuffed with genuine hi-test catnip. You can follow the cat toys on Twitter at @mycrobecatnip. Thanks to KMP artist @artologica for the tip.
