Cat and the EU

Could so see this in a story.
hmmm Wizards' 'verse but then there'd be a need to construct the politics more in depth.

It is an odd way of finding out your current love interest is really a cat, Tim thought. Not that he was biased against cats or humans that turned into cats or vice versa.

The clouds had glowered for most of the day and so it wasn’t all that surprising when the rain had started. Alex had been drawn to sit legs, gathered under him in front of the windows, looking out at the storm and periodically putting up a finger to the glass where a rivulet wandered down outside, as if to catch it.

Tim watched him watching the rain and smiled. He could grow used to the view. Someplace in his soul rose a wanting to do something, he wasn’t sure what but it demanded a physical appreciation of the man seated with his legs under him looking out the window. Perhaps it was a need to gather Alex up in his arms but there was something restful about his posture, something reverent, that Tim didn’t want to trespass.Read more... )

11 Cauldrons Found at Iron Age Settlement in England

11 Cauldrons Found at Iron Age Settlement in England



According to the British Museum, cauldrons played an important role in Iron Age culture. They were used to prepare food and drink during ceremonial feasts, and references in early medieval Irish and Welsh literature suggest that magical qualities were ascribed to the vessels. But Iron Age cauldrons are a relatively rare find. The Glenfield Park discoveries mark only the second time that a cluster of complete Iron Age cauldrons has been unearthed on a modern U.K. excavation.

twinkle tush

Cats have no shame, a fact made clear by felines’ frequent, proud displays of their rear ends.

Unlike humans, kitties are not required to cover up their naughty bits in a public space, leaving owners and guests with plenty of unwanted opportunities to stare at the bit of kitty that can be found right below the tail … until now.

Censorship has reached the cat world thanks to Twinkle Tush, which promises to keep your cat’s booty “veiled and safe.” The simple invention is just a bracelet that goes around your cat’s tail, allowing the Twinkle Tush’s pendant to hang down and cover any offensive anatomy.

Can’t get enough of cats, dogs and other furry friends? Click here to get the cutest pet news and photos delivered directly to your inbox.

It’s the perfect present for the feline fanatic in your life — as a gag gift. As Twinkle Tush makes clear on its website, it’s not looking to oppress cats or their bodies, just to have a little fun.

You can buy this sparkly prank for the cat person in your life for a low price that is sure to provide maximum laughs.

Or as another site put it:
http://odditymall.com/twinkle-tush-jewel-cat-butt-hider

The Twinkle Tush is essentially a little necklace that you can wrap around the base of your cats tail that has a little jewel that hangs off it to cover your cat's butt-hole. What's worse than having some people over only to have your cat walk out in the room flaunting it's uncovered butt-hole all over the house. As your guests see your cats anus, your Grandmother gasps in horror, your mother faints to the floor. If only there were a better way! Simply put the butt-hole necklace over your cat's tail and the shame your cat walks around with will be hidden from view. The only probably is, when they go to take a dump, you're going to end up with an ass bling full of shit.

In case you're wondering, the Twinkle Tush is a real product, and although it's probably just a gag-gift, I'm sure someone out there is going to use it for real. Whatever your reason for grabbing a Twinkle Tush is, just know that it not only covers your cats bung-hole, but it does it in style with some bling! Your cat will be walking around like they own the place.

"Okay, I've met him now. He's a brat." Silas said, “and so’s his Grandfather.”

Nick sighed and applied himself to what or rather who he was doing; obviously he wasn’t working hard enough.

“You’d think his grandfather would be concerned about the effects of his grandson on the other plane.”

“I think that Assembly Chancellor Shelbiel is blind to any deficiencies in his grandson,” Nick paused in his applying and got a growl for his non-applying, “probably on purpose.”

“Hmmmm,” Silas rotated his ass trying to get Nick’s cock in an advantageous position so he could do it himself. “Maybe we need to take another angle on this.”

Nick moved just enough to brush the spot where Silas wanted him and stopped. “Such as?” Read more... )

“Dirty Litter Box!”, came from the other room. Morris raised his eyebrows. That was a combination of words not usually heard in their home. It was followed by an outraged, “Why would anyone even write about something like this?” Perhaps he needed to investigate.

“What?”

“Just look at this.” Lyric stamped a paw on the Ipad screen on the floor and then growled when the screen changed.

Morris smiled, in his mind he could see his kitten hissing, running through the house to return and attack the Ipad.

“I KNOW what you’re thinking. I’m not a kitten. Fix this! NOW!”

“Try please.”

There was a growled, “Pllllleeeese. Sometimes I hate you.”

“No you don’t. You’re just frustrated. You’re cute when you’re frustrated.”

“Am not.”

“Okay.” Morris said and muttered, “but you are,” as he picked up the Ipad recovering the previous page.

Lyric’s, “I can hear you, you know. SEEE. Read that,” was followed with a hissed spit.

“Hmmm. Catches the attention all right.”

“Look at the photo of the dead kitten!”

“There’s a caption. ‘Kitten sleeping on its back.’ Not dead. The photo is of a sleeping kitten.” Quickly he scanned from the title, ‘What If All the Cats in the World Suddenly Died?’ through the rest of the article.

“Okay it says, and I quote, "Experts say that if all the world's cats suddenly died, things would quickly go to hell in a handbasket." "Cats, both pets and strays, may fool us into thinking that they depend on our food and trash for survival, but ... they're expert predators with adaptable hunting behaviors." "They are a significant predator of small animals, and can survive as almost solitary animals when the prey is scarce, while thriving in high density when the prey is abundant, ..."”

“Essentially the article is about how cats are responsible for controlling pests like rats and mice which eat grain and that without cats humans would have less food. Then there’s statistics supporting the impact of cats on those pests. That without cats, the increase of rodents would trigger a cascade of other ecological effects.”

It says, “"In this country, cats are much loved by many. While there are more dog-owning households (38 percent) than cat- owning households (34 percent), there are actually more domestic cats than dogs because cat owners own more of them." Hmmm, wonder if I should get another cat,” drew a growl from Lyric and a smile from Morris as he continued, “"Cats as pets have always been appreciated for the contact, relatively low maintenance, and pedomorphic (that means child-like) face and general morphology."” Putting down the Ipad, he turned to look down at Lyric. “See not a bad article at all. Makes one read through all the information supporting the importance of cats, even familiar ones.”

Lyric sat looking up at Morris.

With a sighed, “Okay,” Morris walked into the kitchen, reaching high up into the cabinet to retrieve the special small bowl that was Lyric’s and a can of canned salmon pate. Pulling the tab that resulted in the distinctive pop and swoosh sound of an opening can, he carefully spooned out the contents. There was a brush of fur against and between his lower legs.

“You could have just asked for food, you know.”

Lyric stopped to look up at him. “Now where would be the fun in that?” before he applied himself to the yummy salmon.

What If All the Cats in the World Suddenly Died?
By Natalie Wolchover

Perhaps you're a cat lover. Perhaps you abhor the lazy critters. Either way, when you see a cat lounging on an armchair, napping all day but for the occasional stretch or window gaze, "useless" is by no means the last word that comes to mind. Cats, beloved or otherwise, don't radiate the message that they're indispensable, hard-working members of the household, or the world.

But, in fact, they're just playing it cool (as usual). Experts say that if all the world's cats suddenly died, things would quickly go to hell in a handbasket.

Cats, both pets and strays, may fool us into thinking that they depend on our food and trash for survival, but according to Alan Beck, professor of veterinary medicine and director of the Center for the Human-Animal Bond at Purdue University, they're expert predators with adaptable hunting behaviors. "They are a significant predator of small animals, and can survive as almost solitary animals when the prey is scarce, while thriving in high density when the prey is abundant," Beck told Life's Little Mysteries, a sister site to LiveScience.Read more... )

And let's not forget the emotional toll that a mass cat death would take on us humans: "In this country, cats are much loved by many. While there are more dog-owning households (38 percent) than cat- owning households (34 percent), there are actually more domestic cats than dogs because cat owners own more of them. Cats as pets have always been appreciated for the contact, relatively low maintenance, and pedomorphic (child-like) face and general morphology."

“Do we know who the demon brat is whose magic is being let loose to cause havoc on the human plane?”

“Think you presented that question with enough qualifiers in it? Does the Agency know which young demon is responsible? In this case, yes. And I’m glad that you are accepting the concept of ‘us’, so well.” Nick grinned at Silas and that grin broadened as Silas’ glower became darker.

“That was the ‘we’ as is represented by a combination of forces and knowledge, Asshole. We’re a team. This being demon society how do you, the demon in this pairing, suggest we confront him or her?”

“Young male demon, named Jazak. Read more... )
