It’s time for Simon’s Cat again, with this version, about feeding time, classified as “Simon’s Cat Logic,” a combination of a cartoon and SCIENCE information on cat. The behavior science is conveyed by Cats Protection behavior expert Nicky Trevarrow. Did you know that cats have an aversion to citrus? I’m also a fan of the “feeding enrichment” technique described at 2:30.

Boredom Therapy has a wonderful series of 22 pictures of cats with unusual markings. I can’t show them all, so here are my top six (be sure to go over and see them all).

Did you know that fantasy and science fiction writer Ursula Le Guin (now 87) has a website, or rather a regular gig on the website Book View Cafe? And her posts are frequently about her tuxedo cat Pard, with some written from Pard’s point of view. You can read all of her posts here; look for the ones call “Annals of Pard” (examples here, here—these two written by Pard—and here). But there are lots of other interesting posts, like her take on Harper Lee’s recently-published book Go Set a Watchman.
