The avalanche of views and comments on yesterday’s post really impressed Calpurnia in a big way. She nearly stopped cleaning her front paw! But seriously, I like the logic puzzle involved in figuring out what makes cats look how they look, and from the response here and in the various comment threads where I’ve pitched in here and there they seem to be well received. I’ll just have to come up with a means to allow those with an interest to ask a question or give the information needed for a more detailed look. From experience so far, having pictures is essential both for eye candy and also to really be able to make a determination – for example – one person’s grey may actually be a sign of the dilute gene, which is called ‘blue’, or it could just be a less intense black.
In actual “three cat yard” news, the other day I was kind of surprised when nobody was down waiting for me yesterday like usual when I returned from work. When I went upstairs I was surprised to find a tiny baby lizard on the floor – maybe 2 inches long. The cats weren’t playing with it, but someone had been because it was missing a bit of its tail. The little guy was otherwise unharmed and I managed to spirit him outside where he has a chance to grow large and get caught again. I wonder how he got in!
Still conked out!
