    Teaching # to #: Kitty jumped up on the kitchen counter to eat my dinner leftovers. Which were a couple of slices of jalapeno chilli.

    Having a cat is like having a two year old human who can jump a six foot fence, and can casually bring down birds, rodents, reptiles, and insects to see what they taste like. #

    @gianf I'm also experiencing a phenomenon that's new to me: the neighbors' # not 100% positive

    Shocked to hear Jeremy # owns a cat but hasn't named it, on the grounds that # respond more to tone of voice than names. This is all very well, but there comes a time—typically after abandoning shaving—when a fellow decides he needs multiple cats. Then where will he be?

    @luke Also other people's # look weird and ineffably un-cat-like. My 2c: # would be a simple way to reward caring for cats (or humans, if you prefer).

    Jacky found a snake. Locked the # inside, but while doing so the snake went to ground. Perhaps we should let them out to find it again.

    The quality that puts # above human children is that cats won't one day suddenly decide you are stupid. They will have always known that.

    Working at home presents interesting challenges. Usually in the form of # that sit on my hands while I'm trying to type.

    @tregeagle Getting the sachet of chicken-flavoured powder open is the tricky bit. Use scissors where it says "tear here". Otherwise you will need a shower and change of clothes to avoid unwanted attention from #, in my experience.

    Kitty has a bit of grass tangled up in the end of an eyebrow whisker, dangling in front of her face. She won't let me near it & doesn't appear bothered, but it's annoying the hell out of me. Maybe I should do the Mum thing: advance wielding a spit-moistened handkerchief. #

    @tregeagle Yes, Jacky doesn't have much to say except "meow-ow", and Kitty's a lightweight when it comes to red wine. #

    I have managed to get both # to sit quietly in one armchair. For my next trick, a two-state solution in Palestine.

    Really must get in the habit of putting the covers back on PC cases. 'No, Kitty. Don't stick your head in an electrical device.' #

    # is on #'s office chair, looking forlorn. It's been too wet to run around outside killing things for _days_. #

    Lately I've been concerned that my # have been laying around, not doing very much. I appear to have forgotten how cats work.

    It's fur shedding season. Patting Kitty is like sticking your hand in a fairy floss machine. #

    Honestly, after decades of such bilge, any pop science article with the word "quantum" in its title, and the word "weirdness" in its opening paragraphs, makes me unspeakably weary, and not at all intrigued. And don't get me started on #

    Jack caught a snake. Or a snake caught him. Then I caught it in a shoe box and humanely flung it into the long grass beside Chinamans Creek. Uncivilised bloody country. I expect rats, moles, badgers, and toads; all wearing little hats and waistcoats. Not snakes. # #

    With the arrival of furball season, I'm less happy about # to a fully-carpeted house. #
