    Just curious as to the cat-owning population of SF. I'll make this poll anonymous for the shyer among you. Mensimagecollector once hinted that the number of men who admitted to owning cats on this forum made it seem somehow less masculine. Hmph.

    It's pretty much a rule that straight men are not allowed to own cats.

    That's ignorance. That's ignorant.

    Evidence or STFU.

    Winston Churchill had a cat that he would bring in to Cabinet meetings. Then again, he also travelled with a parakeet at one point in his life.

    Notable cat admirers: http://www.xmission.com/~emailbox/cat_lovers.htm

    You can still find many descendants of Ernest Hemingway's polydactyl cat at his Key West home, many of which also have genetic mutations.


    I like how Isaac Newton invented the cat-flap. Ingenious!

    Not sure how I feel about Petrarch's cat being "put to death and mummified" when Petrarch died.

    Cardinal Richelieu building a cattery is in tune with his general coolness.

    I wonder if Karl Lagerfeld has a cat.

    Also, there is a song--I kid you not--with the lyrics "Wash that cat, meow meow meow." I heard it on my way to NY in March.

    RJ, are you moonlighting as a singer, with no shame, from Harlem?

    Henri the cat. He feels empty. Like a pendulum that does not swing.

    His cat is still on display in it's tomb at his home in Italy.

    There are two stories behind that cat. It was either killed immediately after his death at his wish, or it died naturally while he was alive and he loved it so much that he had it preserved. To him, his cat was "second only to Laura."

    Two cats and a dog - the best of both worlds.

    Hmmm.. I wonder, too. In some ways, I can definitely see it; then again, in other ways, I can't imagine Karla having something living and breathing in his midst.

    In any case, I think it would be fun to see him in his apartment with all his 18th century furniture playing and talking to his cat, who no doubt he'd call by some uber-Deutsche or Bavarian name like "Herr von Aigelstorfer" or, in the case of a she-cat, "Frau Boxleitner."
