Cats on Tuesday - March 4 - 2008

Cats on Tuesday

Rosa in front and Felicia behind

Last Saturday Rosa and Felicia did wash each other. The ancient Norwegian word for Saturday is Laugardag, meaning Washing Day. Our Cats, of course, do know that. (Had nothing to do with Springtime and the fact Sundays is Half-a-Pill Day)

Here you see them when working together






And here, Felicia. What is she mieewing for? Her sister Rosa? A Male? Could it be me? LOL.


Five things you should know about Cats
1 Cat's sense of smell is 14 times stronger than a human's!

2 Besides their noses, cats can smell with something called the"Jacobson's
organ",located in the upper surface of their mouths. This is what cats are
using when they scrunch up their eyes and open their mouths after sniffing something intently!

3 Cats have 244 bones in their bodies! (About 40 more than humans!)

4 Cats have 32 muscles in each ear!

5 Cats only sweat from the pads of their paws; ever noticed how wet the examination room table gets when you take your cat to the vet?

I love seeing them together like this. Their colors are a wonderful mix when they are together. And I notice they may have begun losing their tempers but they did not fight. My guys? It would've been a bloodbath!


My COT is here. Thank you.

My cats never cuddle together ! I am jalous ! Rosie washes Arthur a little when he sleeps. Interesting things you found about cats. Have to check their paws in summer, lol !
Yesterday morning when I opened the stores the garden was white !! It had snowed ! Unbelievable now that the flowers are coming out ! I almost got a nervous breakdown. Later in the morning it was all gone but there had been many road accidents !
