    I agree. Also, cats are very low maintenance. One can leave them food, water, and litter boxes and go away for a few days. I don't think they even notice that you're gone.

    You haven't lived until you roll over in the middle of the night and stare at the south end of a cat going north!

    About an hour after I made my post above, next door's cat came in through the back door and crapped on my kitchen floor. :evil:

    I love Felix. He is pretty user friendly, all in all.

    OK, cats, illness, lung cancer...I've got to share this one.

    I was an intern and a guy was transferred in to our hospital from a small, outlying town for a bronchoscopy (a fiberoptic scope exam of the the airways/lungs) becasue he had a mass on chest xray. He was a quadriplegic from an accident. While taking the history, I asked him, "Have you coughed up any blood?"

    Patient:"No blood, but a few weeks ago I coughed up something that looked like a piece of bacon."

    DrJay:"Really! Did you get it taken into the clinc for pathology?"

    Patient:"No. I coughed it onto the floor and before I could get someone to come pick it up, the cat ate it."

    (I don't recall whether he ended up with a cancer or a benign diagnosis.)
    musta been a semi-remembered peanut that went "down the wrong way" from few years ago

    HMO directors must love it. Instead of expensive imaging, they'll just have you sniffed by a dog. Awesome!
