2 cats in NY become first US pets to test positive for virus
The cats, which had mild respiratory illnesses and are expected to recover, are thought to have contracted the virus from people in their households or neighborhoods, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

...“We don’t want people to panic. We don’t want people to be afraid of pets” or to rush to test them en masse, said Dr. Casey Barton Behravesh, a CDC official who works on human-animal health connections. “There’s no evidence that pets are playing a role in spreading this disease to people.”

Grace likes to lay on top of My yellow and black Stanley toolbox, She's just big enough to cover the whole box and not spill over.

Kitten with two faces born in Oregon barn
Kyla King, whose family lives on a farm east of Albany, said the 1-year-old barn cat gave birth to a litter of six kittens Wednesday, and she soon realized the runt of the litter had two mouths, two noses and four eyes.

The Kings dubbed the kitten Biscuits and Gravy, or Biscuit for short.

Today is Hug Your Cat Day!

Go ahead and give your cat a big, furry hug. If you're a cat lover, you can really appreciate the warm, cozy feeling you get when you curl up on a couch or chair and hug your cat. The only problem is, your cat will most likely only allow a brief hug before sauntering away. Don't have a cat? You can correct this today because the month of June is Adopt a Cat Month... ;-)

I'm not hugging Grace right now, being a long haired cat She overheats easy and the temp at My desk is 86F, so I'll pass on hugging Her right now for Her, instead I stroked one of Her front paws.

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.

Garrison Keillor on his radio show A Prairie Home Companion

** Edit - add one more fitting quote *

When the country goes temporarily to the dogs, cats must learn to be circumspect, walk on fences, sleep in trees, and have faith that all this woofing is not the last word
