What I love about cats and some other animals and young children is that everything is always for the first time for them. I put some food in the plate for visiting cat Pushkin and he lights up as if the Messiah has just offered him eternal life. And every single time it's brand new, the excitment never dims, no routine is ever boring, everything is wonderful or frightening and invariably surprising. I like to think that I'm a little bit like that, most of the time.

Meanwhile nuclear war is in the air, Trump remembers chocolate cake and forgets which country he bombed.

OK, cats are more subtle than dogs ... meh.

I will pass no comparative comment on cats versus dogs, except to say that Elphie is the best - as was Molly!!! :)

I see on this morning's news that N. Korea tried - and failed - to launch another missile. I suspect that so long as the U.S. pacific fleet keeps out of range of the N. Korean leader's hot air, we'll be quite safe. And today there is the referendum on whether or not to give another blustering autocrat more power. Life is so much simpler when powerlessness is accepted - and deemed to be acceptable!

Davoh, I don't know. Dogs can be pretty subtle as well.Just in a different way.

Tom, I'm not really a cat-person. Pushkin (AKA Ben) is the only feline I've ever befriended or who has befriended me. I love dogs and other animals too but have no desire to own any of then.
