    p.s. also feel free to ask the “old timers”, like a gazillion years ago, for my current addy.

    So sorry to hear about this, although good to know that crisis has been averted in the short term.

    If you still happen to have my email addy from way back when (sorry but yours I couldn’t find) please email me.

    Best,

    VG

  • I hope this statement makes sense, as I’m struggling to word it correctly-

    My impression, and it is only an impression, is that at least in the South religion and prayer were about the only hope that enslaved people had. In some ways, perhaps this made the authority of God pre eminent. And, pastors are stand-ins for God. To accept the fact that God would allow such a thing as LGBT people somehow challenges God, and their stand-ins with a loss of “authority”.

    I’m interested to know your reaction Anthony, and hear from Peterr as well.

    You have a way of getting me to comment.

    So, what about the “our” thing? Just trying to snare you into conversation on that one. “g”

    Hi CTutt, Just checking in to say how much I appreciate your posts. Just so that I can say something, I would question “our own blind allegiance…” I am not part of the “our” populace, and neither are you. One of my dearest friends and best mentor, alas gone, but a fighter for human rights, [...]

    Ms. Cat has never liked boxes of any sort. I tried to get her used to boxes. I put one on the bed, both ends open. I enticed her in, gradually, by placing treats farther and farther away from where she was (“her side”) So, she ventured partially into the box to get the treat. [...]

    As you are still about, I’ll say as I did to dakine01- amazing the cat goes into the carrier so willingly.

    Wow! I am envious. So interesting how cats can be the same, but so different.

    How expensive are they? Do you have a link? I’m getting tired of the bloody hands.

    But, it’s really odd. After the struggle, first visit to the vet after I adopted Ms. Cat, she was perfectly well behaved with the vet. I was amazed. He said, well, she knows who’s boss! I think Ms. Cat just doesn’t like being shoved into a box, and there’s nothing I can do to persuade [...]

    Not restricted to trying to capture strays. Ms. Cat does not like to be put in the carrier to go to the vet. Oh, a bit different. She doesn’t bite, but she uses her claws. I usually go to the vet with blood on my hands!

    So, now you can respond! It would be great to “talk” to you.

    Thanks so much for that info. I am a scientist, but I missed some training, evidently. I will go poke around on the subject.

    Interesting. One thing that is different is that domestic cats co-opted humans, and got them to do their bidding! ;) Ms. Cat has trained me very well. Oh, and the “I’ve got a gift” cry from Ms. Cat is distinctive. When she brings me presents in the daytime I’m usually sitting at my computer– and [...]

    Margaret,

    Okay, that makes total sense. But, interesting question to explore from an evolutionary perspective. Speed vs. mass, and the predators and prey faced by big cats vs. domestics.

    btw, I sent you an email using the Om Ali SD fund conversation.

    Somehow I didn’t picture the big cats doing that! I’ll have to explore this! I mean acting like little kitties!

    That’s really interesting about the grooming. It’s not something I knew. You mean they do the lounging around licking their fur thing? Cleaning their whiskers and such?
