Cameron Diaz is living with a rare Japanese Macaque and she couldn't be happier. "I was in Japan, in the mountain region, when I met Hiriko. He offered me a beetlenut and the rest is history." We asked her if she was aware of the stigma that interspecies relationships can have. "Oh I know, people are so small minded. If they really knew Hiriko they would love him as much as I do. I mean, if you had someone pick small foreign objects out of your hair as a sign of affection, you would fall head over heels as well." She was literally cooing in the interview and smiling the whole time. At the end of the interview though she left us with this serious thought. "I don't think people are saying 'Hey what is Cameron Diaz doing with a Snow Monkey'. I think they are saying 'Hey what is Cameron doing with a JAPANESE Snow Monkey'. It is such a sad thing that people can not accept the racial thing. After all we share 99% of the same genetic code and that has always been good enough for me."
3 adorable black and white female kittens are living behind the swimming pool gate at PPT. They appear to be about 5 weeks old and are very cute bundles of fluff, and are there with their rangy mother. I have given them a daily feed, and would be willing to organize shots, etc, if anyone would give them and /or their mother a good home.
Looking for company in the evening? Percy is very therapeutic and will give you a lot of love and fun.
I am named Percy for perseverance and persistence. My present family really did not want to adopt me (too many four legged creatures already in the house) but I was either going to die or someone had to take me on board so I was persistent and managed to get my present Mum to feel so guilty that she brought me in.
I am about 4 weeks old, I am perfectly clean and use the litter box very well. On Monday I will get all my vaccines, and I have had all other treatments one can think about. I am ready for life. In the morning when I wake up I get to be very vocal about getting warm milk, cold milk definitively does not do. I love my food and just sit in the middle of my plate while eating. I still tend to hop around rather than run like a cat but I don't mind people laughing at me about it.
I am a handsome, full of life little Kitten. I kind of look like a bat because at the moment my ears and eyes are just too big for my little face. My fur is grey and white.
Thanks to Obsidian Wings for the pic. Here's another; this is pretty much how I feel most Christmases:
The traditional view is that men and women have quite different ways of coping with trauma. Men try to deal with it on their own. They disappear beneath the latest Economist, go on long lonely walks, or, ... well perhaps better not to go into some of their other private activities. They bottle up their unhappiness. Women do all of these things too, but are also more likely to open up to friends and to share their pain.
The funny thing is, our cats conform exactly to this pattern. We have just moved them to their new home. Amelia responded by needing company, constantly rubbing up against us, and never letting us out of her sight. Galit, the boy, on the other hand … huh, where is Galit? Twenty minutes later I find him in a pot in the storeroom, buried in his Economist. There’s something in them stereotypes.
