I am sure the Dingo's would appreciate more cats in Australia Vic.


The cats I would bring... I think a Dingo might think twice... Ever see a Savannah???

A Savannah, fully grown, is 35 lbs. They are a special breed of cat; bred down from the African Serval Cat and mixed with domestic cats down to about F3 or F4 are usually tame enough to be house cats... They like to play fetch with their owners, and are loyal and loving creatures. I think a sole Dingo would have a hard time with a full grown Savannah.

New species of wing-mouthed toad?

(Monday may not want to look at this.)
(No, it's okay. It has a happy ending.)

Blimey, talk about biting off more than you can chew.

Ian, you could always go for a slightly smaller special breed cat... Try the Bengal, they only get to be 20 lbs. fully grown. They LOVE water, will go swimming, and love people! :-)

Speaking of cats, you know how they like to leave dead critters as presents for their humans. Baby left me one the other day, but lacking a bird or mouse, he left me a dead cricket that made the mistake of coming into the house.

That cat looks like one that's good enough to stand its ground against a dog, though some dogs probably wouldn't get the memo, nice kitty.

A Savannah cat might leave a dog.

And I do hope that you thanked him!

Actually, I once read that people misinterpret kitty offerings as "gifts" and tokens of their affection. The writer of the article theorized that cats leave us dead or half dead offerings because they are appalled at our terrible hunting skills and think that we could benefit from some stalking and pouncing practice.

I heard that they were trying to
trade the gifts for hard cash, but
that humans just don't get it.

That could be, but Grace likes to hunt, either for bugs or for My affection and attention.

That is too funny Ang. Neither Tinkerbell nor Ziggy know what to do with a mouse. Ziggy is a sock stealer, just never manages to bring home matched pairs.
Tessie is a bit better about it. She leaves the fresh ones outside, but twice managed to hide mummies inside.
Purvis's relatives could have helped her and have been busy again in the last week or two.
Pluto will always be a planet to me.
