Canterbury Cathedral Cat drinks vicar's milk during morning prayers:
https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=canterbury+cat+drinks+milk&&view=detail&mid=9296CC67A47238294E1F9296CC67A47238294E1F&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dcanterbury%2Bcat%2Bdrinks%2Bmilk%26FORM%3DHDRSC4
Quite amusing...thanks!  I suspect that the cat upstaged the vicar there.  Hope that vicar didn't then pour the milk into his tea?!  That said, I suspect that I've shared more than one glass of water with a cat or two during the course of my lifetime.

Haven't check if this has been posted before but this is the BBC news website, with genuine articles from the BBC website but all the pics have been changed to cats...

I don't particularly like cats but there you go  :laugh:

Yes, that's a very nice cartoon. I like the frame of the cat looking down!

I just ran across this graphic novel-type (cartoon?) story and was quite impressed by it.  What do you think?

Always I wanted to visit one of these cats-majority islands, but didn’t have a chance. The article is about Aoshima (Blue Island).

Geralmar,

Is that your little one?  Must be interested in the tuna fish surprise cake batter!  :)

I have a wooden (mobile) kitchen butcher's block table which I purchased years ago to give me some more counter space.  You can guess who quickly appropriated it!

I love this story:  https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-54329606

She chose her human well.  :)
