Elena tells me: “Marc Twain said: “While the rest of the species is descended from apes, redheads are descended from cats”. And sends this pic from Vienna to add to the buses as trinkets collection no doubt – we will take over the world eventually. Thx.

And while we are on the subject of Cats. Perhaps I will start a reading list to add to my ‘Politics of Cats’ piece in an early Stimulus Here:

For starters:

Soseki Natsume 1905/2002 “I am a Cat” Berkeley: Tuttle Publishing.

Kurt Vonnegut 1963 “Cats Cradle” New York: Dell Publishing.

Then add:

Burroughs 2000 “Last Words: The Final Journals of William S. Burroughs” which has lots to do with his cats, like Fletch. Grove Press.

more to come…

    I didn’t know Mark Twain said that. It is especially funny for me because my dad had a, uh, rather inintelligent cat named Redhead when he was a kid. Since then, he began giving cats IQ tests to see whether they would make good, smart pets. Our Jenny and Precious passed with flying colors. On my blog, you can see them studying Environmental Biologly.
