Do you turn off Old Yeller before the end so you can pretend that he lived a long and happy life? Did a cute pet on a movie poster make you think it would be a fun comedy but it turned out to be a pet-with-a-terminal-illness tearjerker instead? Are you unable to enjoy the human body count in a horror movie because you're wondering whether the dog's going to kick the bucket? Have you ever Googled "Does the [dog/cat/horse/Klingon targ] die in [movie title]?"
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then welcome - DoestheDogDie.com
is here for you! [more inside]

is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their noses, or why.

Is It Politically Incorrect To Decry The Eating And Killing Of Civet Cats?
Is Western consciousness of hypocrisy (due to the enormous number of animals we kill for food) preventing us from criticizing countries, like China, where practically all animals are eaten? Is sentimentality and the protection of animals we regard as cute better than having no qualms at all? I'm sure that the ratio of animals killed-per-capita is higher in the West than in China. Is there any moral difference? Probably not. Why, then, is it so shocking?

videos show you how to raise your cat's electromagnetic frequency, clear past karmas, and engage in self-identification
meditation, but unfortunately provides no tips on how to administer the first-aid you're going to require for bites and scratches (requires Quicktime or Windows Media Player).

was one of the greatest tiger trainers of the 1910's and 1920's. Her life is now the subject of a novel,
The Final Confession of Mabel Stark
by Robert Hough. The book has created a lot of controversy because it describes the sexual nature of Mabel's relationship with her big cats. Film rights have already been sold;
will play the lead. Writer Rip Sense
recalls seeing Mabel as an old woman
still handling big cats in Jungleland, California. Want to raise big cats in your home? See this handy guide
to matters such as litter-box training, feeding, and keeping the tigers from destroying the furniture.

It seems cats do better when dropped...uh, I mean, fall, more than seven stories. Anything less and they fail to reach terminal velocity and don't land properly. Once the cats reach terminal velocity
they spread their legs (think parachute) and slow their fall. A cat has a far better chance of survival falling from 32 stories than four.
, however, do not benefit from longer flights.

Another Cat Killer Wins
"As a property owner, you have a right to do as you please and you have the right to protect it" In Coeur d' Alene, ID, accused cat poisoner Dale Crooks Jr. is acquitted of feeding tuna mixed with antifreeze to the neighbor's cats. What seems most remarkable to me, though, is that everyone is calling the plaintiffs' lawyer a publicity seeker and the cats' owners troublemakers. There must be more to the story than is printed here. Either that, or small town dwellers in Idaho REALLY hate cats.

Even Ocicats In Hats Do It!
How does this extraordinary woman know her cat is gay? Well: People ask me why I think my cat is gay, and it's really hard to explain in words. If you hang out with him at all, it becomes obvious. His effeminate, overdramatic affectations speak volumes. He will go from languid, swishy posturing to screaming hysterics for no apparent reason, and then will fall over in an apparent swoon.
If he is, he's certainly not alone
(predictably, even Guinean cocks-of-the-rocks
do it). Giraffes
are thought to be the gayest of all mammals but cheetahs
seem to run a close second.[Please scroll down a bit. Requires Real or QuickTime. First link via Andrewsullivan.com.

is a robotic cat that looks more like a cat than a robot. This site is only available in Japanese, but check out the photo
galleries. (I saw this thing mentioned in a Reuters article
about the new "human-like" Honda robot).
