    I can appreciate that cats are the only animal that chose humans as their cohabitants and not the other way around.
    Cats are not really domesticated animal like cow, horse, dog etc.
    Cats started to live with humans around the time humans started harvest crops.
    Humans were tolerating cats due to the fact that cats killed rodents that were eating stored grain. And cats tolerated humans because larger predators were not venturing close to human settlements thus cats were safer and with more food around humans than in a forest.
    Cats are definitely feminine and dogs are definitely masculine which one you prefer tells a lot about you.[​IMG]

    Can someone please, please kill that guy? The dude he sprayed with a syringe of his blood had a legitimate right to, and totally wussed out on it. I think maybe death by a bag of angry cats would be appropriate.

    Norwegian (I think) proverb:

    In the dark, all cats are grey.


    Hegel used this (with cows, not cats) to describe Shelling's conception of final wisdom.

    From a German proverb, then?

    No idea, sorry. Though Hegel does refer to it as "proverbial" he does not say where he got it.

    I keep waiting for him to finish himself off, but the bastard seems as durable as your average cockroach.

    No, cockroaches have healthier complexions.

    I take a wild guess and say that this proverb probably predates Egyptian civilization.

    Nah, pop-star martyrdom is too good for him. I'd rather see him as an aging, pathetic ASBO king.

    Saw a picture of him not long ago and he looks like he could use a wire brush if he ever gets near soap and water. The idea that he would live past 30 simply does not compute. As for the pop-star martyr bit, well, first you've got to have some talent and a following. I'm not seeing it.

    I took Chairman Meow to the vet to be spayed and it turns out that she is actually a he, a male that was neutered very early on. Anyway, he's pretty much the friendliest cat of all time.

    The vet also suggested that I name the next one Genghis Cat.

    Not Chiang Cat-Shek? Or the Pawchen Lama?

    You know I noticed that all those Persian/Angorra furry cats (well those two that I knew) had mental problems. I hate those cats.
    Cat should be lean mean bird-catching machine with as short hair as possible.

    I have been feeding this stray cat, though I haven't quite adopted her yet.

    I have named her Chairman Meow.

    Did you finally adopt Chairman Meow? Look at the way he's looking at you, I think you've been adopted already

    Yes, I have adopted him. I even got a name tag for him. On the front it has his name and my phone number and on the reverse, it says "Religion is the catnip of the masses."

    Chairman Meow is adorable. Are you going to set up a Catster page for him? Don't let him wander into Chinatown with a nametag like that...
