Alex's Newest Demand


I am unsure whether the furball is wacky, strange, or simply spoiled! Alex’s latest demand is that I stand beside him and brush his coat while he dines. This new command began just a few days ago and it has me stumped. Could it be because its time for him to shed his winter coat? Or is it just another way of controlling me, his servant?


Remember Earth Hour on Saturday:

Earth Hour is going global Saturday, when we're all supposed to turn off the lights (and, come on people, the TVs, stereos and computers, too) for a mere hour from 8 to 9 p.m. to raise awareness of climate change and promote energy conservation.


Update on the Petition to Chinese President Hu Jintao on Tibet

We reached our target! In just 7 days over 1 million of us have signed the petition calling for human rights and dialogue in Tibet—the fastest growing internet petition in history. As the crisis continues, it's time to deliver our petition and make sure Chinese President Hu Jintao hears our voices.

An International Day of Action has been declared for Monday, March 31st. On Monday, thousands of people in cities across the world will march to Chinese embassies and consulates, and stack hundreds of boxes containing our petition outside them. 1 million signatures make a mountain of boxes—it will send a powerful global message. ~ AVAAZ.org

  1. i don't know where the heck i heard this.. but some cats like to be groomed while they eat because it makes it easier for them to relax and digest thier food properly. I think i read it in some kind of cat behaviour book somewhere.

    Or he is whippin' ya. =P

  4. As you well know, Rev Saint, I know little about cats, so I will not comments on Alex’s newest manner of exercising control over his human. I do know a bit about history and suggest that Hu Jintao will not be impressed or influenced by a petition or marches on Chinese embassies.

    How is your tooth feeling?

  5. When I was a baby kitten, I would not eat unless my Mommie was there to pet me while I was eating. Now I can eat by myself though.

  7. Awww.. my cat Coquette used to like that too! I miss her.

    So, from 8 to 9 is candle, cup of hot tea and a good book time. Sounds good!

  8. That's really sweet - Alex is spoilt! And quite right too. They give us so much pleasure, a little (or a lot in Alex's case) spoiling is the least they deserve.

  12. Alex is quite demanding, isn’t he?

    I pray that petition does some good.

    OK, I’ll cit the power for an hour at 8:00, but remember that the Louisville NCCA tournament games begins at 9:05.

  13. When my calico was alive she liked when I was by her when she was eating. I think she felt safer.
