Re: Cat trees bear
Outstanding photo, Moose. They don't call cats hypercarnivores for nuthin'...

To respond to a post from the animals-on-the-ark now made safe from cats, and in my capacity as a tolerated (but not endorsed, oh no) spokesperson for the Family of Felines...

My cat like sticky labels, plastic tags, rubber bands and staples from my staple gun. I have observed him eat all of them. The staple made him sick almost straight away (which is probably a good thing) but the other stuff was never to be seen again.
He also spends a good bit of his time eating my potted ferns and palms, which really pisses me off :(

Basicly cats are pretty dumb really.

In their own arena, they are brilliant.

Cats are poor candidates for domestication; they seem to like us against their better judgment. Perfect little furry killing machines develop grudging affection for naked monkeys! Whodathunkit? Maybe they find our own fatal talents charming, though it doesn't take many weeks in the wild to make a cat irretrievably feral. They have no sense of indebtedness, though, and their royal pomp moots questions of entitlement. Still, like all our pets, they can become funhouse mirrors of us.

In an environment that is increasingly artificial for us, and even more so for them, it's no surprise they share our bent for picas and other quirks.
