Oh, no! Zee is reading about OBSESSION (see image below)! Must be a book about the deepest, darkest inner doings of cats. They certainly are obsessed with certain things (and I won't horrify you with what those are). Let's just hope it's a book of curative potions. Back, you cat! Get back, Jack!

hee ! actually, that book was like the official consecration of my conversion to ebooks. i don't know if you can tell from the photo, but it was so stiff (heavy paper, tightly bound) that it was almost painful to try to hold it open with one hand. my poor thumb really had to push to keep the thing from slamming shut. and since i didn't want to break the spine (it wasn't mine, and it's an out of print book which is very hard to find) i couldn't open it far enough to comfortably read the text nearest the binding. and the whole book was printed in sans serif font !!! i really was interested in the topic (it's a biography of tom waits) but in the end i gave up and returned it to my friend without finishing it.

obsession is right (see subject of book above) but sadly the only thing it cured me of was wanting to read paper books !

as for the things cats are obsessed with, hm, i think it's best we not discuss that !

yes, it's true, although some more than others. of my two cats, one is very noisy, and very smelly (and loves to yawn right in your face, so you get the full benefit of her stinkiness !), and demands a lot of attention, constantly !! the other one is (generally...) more discrete, although she's been annoyingly dog-like too in the past days. at least if she has to yawn she does it in her own space so i can't say she's stinky !
Sounds like my two cats... One will crawl on my lap, the other will lay on my feet. Once we can have in the bedroom at night as he'll stay on his chair. The other has to be locked down as he'll try to walk all over you the whole night...

And I wasn't talking about cat's breath... Rather the other end (and it can't be the food as they both eat the same, preferably out of the same bowl!)

point 2 is fun, especially if the cat is about the same colour as the covering on the stairs... He loves laying on the stairs and you can hardly see him with his camouflage colours!

All I'm saying is, if you put your wife and your dog in the trunk of the car, guess who's going to act happy to see you two hours later when you open it up?

I have a Bearded Dragon as a pet. She a FireTiger morph. beautiful red. She only a few months old right now, but her colours are getting stronger. Her name is Khzenia Khydda. Ksenia - Russian for "Wanderer". Kaida - Japanese for "Little Dragon".

So, for short I just call her Khy, or Khydda.

Aaahhh. Are you saying the wife wasn't glad to see you when you let her out of the trunk? She didn't wag her tail and lick your face?
