Interesting article. The Wife and I are both cat people, though we do have some friends among dogs.

Molly, the refined feline

with one comment

Just to explain: Molly started eating on the dining room table so she could eat without Megs bullying her away. She has some tummy-acid problems, so we wanted to elevate the food somewhat (mouth above stomach) and used a little box for that, but a box did not seem in keeping with the occasion.

So yesterday The Wife found what amounts to a tiny café table made so that it looks as though it has a scalloped tablecloth. Molly now eats in style. Here she is, beckoning the waiter.

And here she is at breakfast this morning:

Her china pattern is Spode Buttercup.

A determined cat. (Good 1-minute video, but I can’t embed it.)

Roger Tabor writes great books on cat behavior

leave a comment »

Here are secondhand editions of several of his books, from $1 and up. The different books do overlap (for one thing, they’re each about cats and cat behavior), but I have three and am glad to have them all. Try one and then get more if you like it.
