After the last post it seemed I needed some rationality. One aspect of science I love. But even more, it’s the weirdness of our world that keeps me sane.

Cats

I’m a cat person. I’ve I had a cat as a companion since I was 7 years old. After having had several calico’s, it’s clear they are the smartest cats. Or current calico, Abby, adopted us 13 years ago. She exhibits some amazing behaviors. One is she follows our grandson around when he’s outdoors as a watch cat. Here’s a picture of her in one of her less dignified poses, curled up in the sink waiting for me to turn the spigot on so she can get a drink from the faucet!
