@ Joan, spca/LA had a program a few years back where kids could go to their local libraries on designated Saturdays, and read aloud to therapy dogs.  I haven't seen an announcement for such an event in a while so I don't know how it worked out.

In the meantime:

Chris, those cute photos of kids reading to cats just made me feel so good! It looks like all were having a grand time.

Mindy, believe that I'm thinking of you and your worries. 

about your Facebook friends, I read a quote somewhere a long time ago, in a different was a single woman saying it: "I would rather have five good friends than one fantastic lover."  You have a good husband as your best friend, so four more true friends ought to help.  and don't worry about the rest...they were false friends, conditional friends. 

Have a great lunch today.  Good food in good company helps, too!

Grinning Cat, wonderful photos.

Thanks to The Flying Atheist for sharing a collection of striking pet furniture designs, including a cat-tunnel sofa many of you might have seen, in Hang With Friends.

It reminded me of Bob Walker and Frances Mooney's amazing feline wonderland of ramps, walkways, and secret rooms, The Cats' House in San Diego (doubling as a brightly colored home for the humans as well). Apparently they moved to Virginia last summer, where they hoped to build "a bigger, better, longer, stronger, and more artistic catwalk".

(As I was looking for the website, I also found a more sedately colored but still playful and amazing "Cats' House" designed by a Japanese architecture firm: )

Poor Lucy and DALE.  But it's funny that Dale checks your hands for a brush!

It's been probably 40 years or more. :(

I found a beautiful silver-gray cat at the animal shelter about a year & a half ago, and wanted it.  

But after thinking about it, I knew I would worry about it's health and happiness too much, and figured the cost to properly take care of it would be about $500 a year.  Just too much for my limited income. :(

OMNerves, Spud!  You needz a kitteh!  How long has it been?  I think the longest I've been cat-less was 2 years, and I hated every minute.  {{{{{Spud}}}}

I should talk.  In my avatar, I look rather serious, and Mr. Cat looks intense or regal.  I guess it's been so long since I had a cat that I've forgotten their natural look.
