Denyse O'Leary should get paid for this hilarity

Denyse O'Leary is not just a teedy old granny with a penchant for ID and any other kind of creationism that "disproves" evolution. As several other better bloggers have noticed she has written a fabulous post conflating evolution (of bacteria) with development (of cats). It such a fun read, that I now will make sure to check her blog more often.
So the claim is, "changed shape, changed size, changed metabolism and changed food source. How much more MACRO do you expect an organism to evolve?"

Hmmmm. Kittens do this all the time.

Change size? You bet. Goes from a couple of ounces to five lbs in half a year.

Change shape? Sure. The average newborn kitten is just a little bag of mewing metabolism, blind and probably deaf, whose only real talent is using its sense of smell to get control of a teat.

Changed metabolism? Sort of. Kittens must be weaned onto something other than cat milk after about six or seven weeks. I am not a vet, but surely some changes in metabolism accompany this transition.

Changed food source? Yes! From mom cat to local rodents, birds, frogs, and eggs that can be cracked by being pushed off the branch or table. Or, if the cat is under human management, a science-based diet for growing felines. Or otherwise, scavenging a local dumpster. Or whatever an obligate carnivore* like the cat can stomach.

Okay, so where are we now? We have explained how a kitten gets transformed into ... a cat.

And this is "evolution"?

Question: Does a bacterium ever get transformed into a cat? As opposed to changing in ways that are normal for most life forms - though not always employed, and forced on some under duress?

And if that ever happened, your local humane society ... will not be very pleased. There are many cats there now who would like kind homes. If what the Darwinist believes is true, their problems would be ever so much worse.

cheers, Denyse
Precious, precious! I want more.
