Thursday Quote



"Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat."
- Mark Twain Notebook, 1894

I hate to burst the bubble, but there are some kitties who do walk on leashes.

Domino is one of them, and her boyfriend Milo and his brother Alfie are a couple of others.

I must say that, although they well tolerate the leash, they still tend to do the leading.
