Re: Find the Cat
Thank you. With a couple glasses of wine I'm easily entertained. I spent quite a few minutes staring. Finally found the pussy. Now I can retire happy (er). One more glass to celebrate. Now off to dream land. Or I could just babble on here for a while. But I do have dreams to be dreamt. I also need to go in early in the morning. Got a small problem yet to be resolved. Or I guess I could look at the picture for a bit more to see if maybe the pussy as moved any. It is looking a bit fuzzy around the edges.
Red, red wine,
Stay close to me.
Don't let me be alone.
It's tearing apart,
My blue, blue heart.

Re: Find the Cat
Seems F&L, you and Saab found your pussy quickly while I toyed with mine for a good few minutes. I'm thinking I had more fun then y'all.
But then again that depends on which wine.
I'll be what I am

A Dog Person
Yes, a lite topic with a touch of genetics, environment and a scourge on Red Delicious apples.
YouTube with Rebecca Watson on the disposition of dogs, who, unlike cats, actually have personalities and thus interesting and varied dispositions.

Re: A Dog Person
Isn't there controversy on whether a Siamese is actually a curious chimera of dog software running on a restricting cat platform?
I would love to have known the personality of a Siamese. All my other fuzzballs were like "Oh, yah, hey human? ... naa ... later. Don't you dare touch me, yet! I remember a sunbeam around here somewhere."
While my dogs were, dogs. If they're in the room you are the center of their world. Bring the ball, the rope, the chewed-up slipper from last year. Tiger and D'Oggy.
Still, her point on personality being more nurture than nature in the canine rings true. And her point on apples was spot on as well.

Re: The catwoman spent 5 months becoming a cat.
I've seen such things around over the years. Do you have a cite? I'd like to see how far she went with her crazy.
