cat in tree

A heart warming story in the local news-who hasn't done this for some furry stranger at one time or another!?!
Though I might not go with the menu suggested, the cat does indeed look very happy with it.

Show dogs some LOVE

"Care2" is a site where one can find petitions, news and information. We first found out about CARE2 when we signed a petition aimed at NFL player Michael Vick regarding his abuse of dogs.
The site recently posted a story on a movement against chained dogs asking folks to show their love for dogs by creating Valentines . You can go here to find out more & show some dogs the love they deserve.

cats & computers

Nicki & Sandi often like to visit the computer. (They seem most drawn to it when someone is working on it with great concentration) They seem to be attracted to it much the same way some cats love pianos. There are keys and that seems to be an invitation for walking upon aimlessly, creating mysterious and poetic sentences like :
asdanm,cvoier8towhnqhbsh gbyvitg9p;438j90c3-0ejwomxcdniu.
Then there is the "stand still , for as long as your paws can stand it" on a single key , resulting in the more simplistic: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Recently, there seems to be a new attempt at computer fun going on here: this image of Nicki appeared on photo booth. It is a close-up and as I did not take it, it looks like Nicki is dabbling in the age old art of self portraiture. Not bad for a first try at photography. I have a feeling it is currently beyond both cats to figure out how to post things on "you tube" & flicker but this does prove that they are a force to be reckoned with.
P.S. Did you know today is "Squirrel Appreciation Day"? Get out there and give a squirrel some love! And fresh nuts!
