    Well that's more sensible than one of mine - Bracken - who seems to like eating all of her dry food like that, one hoik at a time from the bowl. Why? She likes to do it with water too - is she too posh to lap?

    Sigh!

    Bracken does the cute faces too, whereas Bibi yeowls like there's no tomorrow. But there is another useful skill in there somewhere, Bracken can pull clothes out of my drawer (although only to make room for her to get in and sleep) and Bibi has got the door opening gene (although not by handle)

    LOL! Getting all those darned clothes out of the way is a useful skill! Much more sensible than folding them and placing them in the drawer.

    Here's a picture I took of sleeping Thaisun this afternoon. So much for being a graceful and dignified creature, eh?

    He looks like he is very secure in his surrounding.

    Default Speaking of cats...

    Hey cat ppl!
    This is Sousel, the world's first spike-eating cat. He just can't resist gnawing on elongated stuff like straws, phal spikes, shoe laces, etc. He infuriates me at some times...but then he's so adorable. He's a turkish angora.

    That's a very atmospheric photo you have taken of Sousel.

    He may be pleased to know that there are a lot of cats on this forum that also like to eat plants, and generally cause heartache and heart atacks at their antics near the precious orchids!!

    Sousel is beautiful. Is a Turkish Angora the same as a Turkish Van??? I have read that they are great swimmers.
