===================================

Does your cat sleep in your bed? Some researchers now think
this is a dangerous thing to do. The fear mongers are at it again,
warning about threats of disease and even death. Here's the
story:

----------------------------

This cat was born and raised in a tree! She has never left that
tree, but is being cared for by the property owner where the
tree is located. After she was born, her mother moved all the
kittens to a new location... all except her. There is a video
on the website:

A SMILE FOR YOU
===================================

In ancient Egypt, the entire family would shave their eyebrows
as a sign of mourning when the family cat died.

-------- LATEST VIDEO -----------

Check out the video on my website, at the bottom of the page.
http://www.theproblemcat.com
This week's video is only 19 seconds long, so you have to listen
carefully to hear the cat say Mama. You may have to listen
several times to catch it. It's not clear at all. But the thing that
caught my attention even more is that the narrator's voice
sounds like me! I found my "voice twin!"
