that cats are better than dogs.
Please do not allow your dog to watch this, it will depress the dog. Your cat, however, will just sit and nod it's head knowingly.

You may have seen Replacements, Ltd.'s
print ads in the back of PARADE magazine (of Howard Huge
fame). Replacements, both a seller and a resource
for china and glassware owners, was one of the few North Carolina businesses to publicly take a stand
[NYT] against the state's vote to ban gay marriage.
As an employer, Replacements is one of only nine companies in the country to receive a perfect score
for ten years straight in the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index. But the company is also known for another surprisingly liberal policy: encouraging its 450 employees to bring their pets to work amidst millions of pieces of china and glassware. How many? A whole lot. [more inside]

Three Dog Eves
--They really do understand
us--even better than our cousin chimpanzees. Well, at least when food's
As to how wolves became dogs, the current understanding seems to be they tamed themselves--in a Survival of the Friendliest
. Here's more on animal linguistics
. As for cats, well, Stephen Budiansky in The Character of Cats
suggests they aren't even really tame
. Hence, unlike dogs, cats haven't bothered to pick up our language--they've taught us Cat talk
instead. Take the test and see. A woof out to Australian Broadcast Coporation's five part Animal Attraction series is called for here.

The Hindu nationalist group Bajrang Dal name a puppy George Bush.
This isn't meant to be a complimentary act... it's in reaction to their discovery that the Bushes' cat's name is India (short for India Ink). They've taken this as an insult to the nation, and have retaliated with the puppy.
I'm kind of curious about what this tells about Indian naming practices and significances, as compared to those in the US. Could someone more familiar with Hindu/Indian culture please enlighten me as to why they'd feel so insulted?
