The Nazis were not animal friends - they loved hunting in East Prussia.

Another cat painter you surely know - Louis Wain. He painted to comfort his wife dying of cancer. After her death he suffered from schizophrenia according to some sources. I guess all artists suffer from something... Anyway, there will be a movie about him!

The advantage cats have over men and children (if there is any practical distinction) is that they don't speak the human language.

Not sure why I was reminded of this classic: Virginians.

When a woman dies as a virgin, she gets 72 fluffiest and cuddliest purris in heaven (or something like that).

Adorable black kitty!  Is this the one you have rescued from Egypt?

That was quite a story, but a great cause!

(and if so, how are your other two cats handling the newcomer? Could be harmonious, could be... !!!)

My sister saw a bob cat in her yard recently, but by the time she got her camera, it was gone.

We are going north to the Highlands Games again this year though and will also go hiking in the mountains - maybe will catch a glimpse up there.

Today just a short hike - building up mileage on the trails.  TTFN!

I've always wanted to go lynx spotting in Syberia (they have those massive white Syberian lynxes with cute tufts of black hair on their ears). I lived practically on the water - not really a cats' element (Turkish cats weren't interested either).

Enjoy the hikes!
