Creation: According to the Cat

On the first day of creation, God created the cat.

On the second day, God created man to serve the cat.

On the third, God created all the animals of the earth to serve as potential food for the cat.

On the fourth day, God created honest toil so that man could labor for the good of the cat.

On the fifth day, God created the sparkle ball so that the cat might or might not play with it.

On the sixth day, God created veterinary science to keep the cat healthy and the man broke.

On the seventh day, God tried to rest, but, alas....

He had to scoop the litter box.

(Thanks, Nancy!)

Traveling with your pets to the UK? Here's how to avoid that whole quarantine rigamarole. After all, a traveling companion -- dog, cat, birdie, hamster, iguana -- whatever -- should be able to travel with you. (A tip of the cap to Shell.)

Tiger Boots likes to sleep on top of the covers, between my feet. Marilyn likes to sleep under the covers, snuggled against my stomach. Even so, I'm not really looking forward to the day when they meet and fight for queen of the bed supremacy.
