I circulated this to some friends and my sister and there is strong positive consensus: those quolls are adorable!

I had never heard of them before, but that did not mean they do not exist.

Now if we can just decide on black quolls... :D

Drough in norway now, many cat plants screaming for water (or beer). 

The only bigger danger to cat-plants than drought is cats:

"An early propagator in Boston found all his pots of the newly introduced plant bitten to stubs in his greenhouse, before his cat was discovered to be the culprit. The plant is attractive to cats, which find it more attractive than catnip or valerian and can severely damage the vine."

Actinidia kolomikta has female and male plants. The less good looking with small kiwi looking fruits the female ones. The ones with more sprawling colors in the leafs are the male plants.

Both edible (by part-time vegan cats)

Scientists discover new use for sheep wool – cat food

kat's cats are of course vegan

I can't see them listing "sheep wool" in the ingredients list, so no doubt some long scientific euphemism will be used

Do you think I'm crazy or stupid? My cats are not vegans. Cats are carnivores and eat mostly cooked chicken with broth. I'm absolutely against such experiments with pet diets. (I believe feather could be a good supplement to a cat diet too.)
Are your pets vegetarians?
