Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the new blog! Just to hope you have a restful day and a wonderful year ahead.

And here's an interesting article about how cats were used to get rid of a rat problem - note, the cats didn't have to KILL the rats just leave their scent around for the rats and mice to decide to leave the area alone. That's one thing people often ask - if cats kill rats and mice - but often they just need to be present for the mice and rats to move away. That's certainly been my experience when I moved once - the mice all vacated the building once my cats moved in.

Hey Dawn, Happy 2008! Nice to see Scout on your blog. Her poses always bring a smile or give me a good laugh. Haha!

Dawn said...

Thanks and Happy New Year to you too Orange and Lingcat. I'm biased but I think Scout is the most photogenic cat ever!

Wishing you a Happy New Year Dawn.
May the year 2008 brings you a bright and successful future.
May all your wishes comes true.
If cats could speak, they would said a big MEOW thank you for caring in their welfare.
My cat Lucky is just like Scout - he poses for pics with a big smile.
