Hey, I grab my Ben cat and kiss him right smack in the middle of his
forehead. He HATES it. He gives me a dirty look, and settles back into
cuddling. If I do it again (which I admittedly often do eg) then he
gets up in a huff and leaves. heh. Gotta have a sense of humor if yer
gonna live in *this* house :-) I can (and sometimes do) impose an inner
dialogue that gives voice to the fussing and the faces that he makes,
but it would be a disservice to him if I *believed* that inner dialogue
was actually what he was "thinking". Sure, it looks like an "awww MOM!
Cut it out, I hate that.", but its more likely that his feelings and
reactions are sourced in something much more uniquely feline than that.
and that's just as it should be.

I wonder if they interpret a lot of *our* behaviors through the filter
of the feline mind. Hmmm.....

This isn't an opinion...it's what is taught



Base3: There is no 4, 2 + 2 is 11.
Base2: I concur, but 10 + 10 is 100.
Base1: You are mistaken, 10 + 10 is 1000.
Base4: Of course there's a 4, but in name only as 2 + 2 is 10.
Base5: Well I'm with Aqua Girl, 2 + 2 is indeed 4.


God I haven't seen math like this since 7th grade! Wow. And apparently I
remembered the base systems wrong.
