Of interest to any animal loving speech pathologists in the audience.... An elephant who can speak.


I have 4 cats. And believe me......I know what they are saying.
Every meow of it.

The interesting part of all of it is this.....
Cats, or other intelligent species, do not NEED to vocalize things in the way that we do.
They have other communication skills......sounds, touch, even the look in another one's eye. A twitch, a jiggle, lift of an eyebrow, the cant of their tail.....all these things mean something to a cat.
It's communication on a different level than we know.......so don't really expect kitty to speak to you, she does not have to.

Cats.....what more does one need?

Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.

Animals have great telepathy skills as well!

So do each of my 6 dogs. They also communicate what they want (also to eat) outside meal times ...

I always used to walk my dogs without a leash. That went very well with Gonzo, even when she saw a cat or another dog. Had more difficulties with Sopor though. It also depends on the breed of the dog I guess...

I am not risking that until I can prove to myself I can walk at least 2 miles. Then I will take 1 out on a lead, and build to 3 at a time (alternate days 3 different furballs) ...

I couldn't walk more than 1 dog without a leash. It's rather confusing for me (and the dogs, I guess)

For a good upper body work out you should try "walking" 3 Labrador, 2 Spaniels, and a Collie at the same time, its more or less OK until they get the scent of some unfortunate small furry animal - I think my arms grew a good few inches, but I did mange to keep them from going thought the thorn hedge which would have been painful for me....

After the stem cell treatment in isolation (some time around January now)I look forwards to building up walking fitness for a return to walking the dogs ...

We will most certainly hold you to Yorkshire if you can, that is now a traditional pilgrimage not to be missed. I'll see what the weather is like late Feb for a one day whizz up and down. Regards to Sheila and the pooches.

I remember taking a train through kansas when I was quite young. Later on in life I asked a friend to take a picture of Kansas when they drove through.
She kept looking for something to take a picture of... then it occured to her there WASN'T anything.

Her words were... colorful. But apparently Kansas is still in black and white. ;)
