This is great! Thanks for posting this. As a cat lover, I totally get it!

I have two cats (who for some strange reason didn't figure in this post - perhaps there's another post entirely about them waiting to happen...). I find myself thinking regularly about the Egyptians, who thought cats were gods incarnate - they really are exquisite.

Excellent! I have learned similar lessons from my dog.

Yes, it seems to work for just about every other kind of animal. Animals are not nearly as affected as humans by fashion, badly designed furniture, or directions about how to exercise the body. 

This would make a great calendar. Wonderful series of photos!
