I love my cats--but I had to firmly collar them and put them inside, after I heard the pandemonium outside last evening, when a robin family was being to fledge.

The two cats were absolutely beside themselves (eyes as big as saucers), the robin parents were frantic, and the babies were hopping all over. No casualties, and everyone flew away.

If I were as big as a cat then the feline critters in my neighbourhood would be dog meat.

Yay! Thanks for playing.

I'm not a big cat fan. Beware.

I bear cats no ill will, but damn, I'm very allergic (and, of course, the more I ignore them, the more "polite" I seem to them!).

Mouse, you may already know this one from Churchill:
"Dogs look up to us, cats look down on us, but pigs treat us as equals".

tut-tut, my bastard cats caught a fledgeling this evening. Can't find the parents. Hope I can do the job for the next couple of days.

Dennis says it's true, all things he sees belong to him. This is the root of many squabbles, however since others are too clueless to leave Denny's stuff alone.

I love dogs a lot more, but can't resist a nice kitty of course. Some of them can be very loving and almost act like dogs.

Thanks for the kind uplifting words on my blog by the way. Most appreciated my fellow long-distance Cancerian soulmate.
