Of course he has a knife. He always has a knife. We all have knives - it's 1183 and we're barbarians.

Interesting note: did you know that under the fur, the black bits on a black and white cat are balc skinned and the white bits white?


yes (but had black and white cat who had surgery)

and under a ginger cat it's all pink

I was blind - but now I can see! (The picture and the point.)

Our two are more like a Delta Force jaunt to Mogadishu market. In theory hunting in a pair is a good plan, the ground is known and researched, you know about the cars and the dog walkers - but not if there are only 9 legs between you and your partner is a Half-siamese version of the A-Team's Murgatroyd!

"Only" 9 legs between two cats? What's the half-Siamese crossed with - an octopus?

So biology works in base 4 not base 10? Maybe that's why I get so confused!

So, Panda-my-lovely, tell me what it is about Cork that makes everyone make pointed reference to it? More specifically coming from Cork, as our new Irish neighbours some years ago informed me that my paternal great grandmother came over from Cork (don't know which part) - something My Dad forgot to mention to me.

Ammunition please: I need to one-up the Lancashire-Irish strain boasted by the Husbynd.....which childish need I adamantly do not regret!

I would like to formally make apology for the fact that someone somewhere thinks that you lot need pumping up on pills, or having it liquidised and pumped out while gassed and out cold.

I don't.

I think yer all lovely as you are.
