    A sheep cafĂ©. Well, why not and what’s next??? Would be the sort of place where I could bring my knitting. Or “book” a purrticular sheep for a sweater’s worth of yarn come shearing season. 😉 Tks for earworm as “baa-baa black sheep …” not!

    Back at you with:

    Q: How many sheep does it take to knit a sweater? A: Don’t be silly – sheep can’t knit!
    Q: What do you get when you cross a sheep and a porcupine? A: An animal that can sew its own sweaters.
    Q: Why was the sheep arrested on the freeway? A: Because she did a ewe-turn!
    And since you are an avowed Francophile:
    Q: What do you call sheep taking over France? A: Baaaa-stile Day.

    Done JK! Took me all of 2 seconds so I encourage others to do likewise. The zoo “won’t” accept a coat for this poor creature? Add this to the too-long list of things that I just don’t “get”! *Sighs*

    Great, thanks KJ.
    Agree, plus why oh why is there so much Animal Abuse/Activity – wish we could evolve to a kinder/gentler world as today’s TDK CafĂ© theme states!

    This just in!!!
    Heard it on my local radio station this am. Study done in JK’s n’hood – sorta.

    (excerpt)
    A new project out of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, shows that cats are capable of liking music, they just think yours sucks. A pair of psychologists and a composer have combined sounds that cats like—such as the tempos of purring and suckling and the sliding wails of alley-dwellers—into three soothing songs for felines.

    Link to excerpts (it’s also on main article site)
    http://musicforcats.com/21-listen.htm

    So I played the excerpts for Dorry – and he was transfixed!!! There’s something to it! He never acts quite that calm when I play “Gangsta” (the G-rated versions, well sometimes LOL).

    Great info – thanks for share KJ.
    Heard it on local radio station, didn’t get a chance to research it…
    Putting it in Purry FYI folder.

    OPPS – links temporarily unavailable 🙁

    Your most welcome JK!
    And while article describes the sounds as “weird and kind of unsettling”, IMHO they are not that. Or purrhaps my tastes are “weird and kind of unsettling.” 😯

    Links were temporarily unavailable for me as well, but tried again and voila! Probably every purry purrson in known world clicking on them overloaded site.

    Another purry news item:

    Welcome to ‘Cat Island’, where felines outnumber humans 5 to 1

    (excerpt)
    On Japan’s Aoshima Island, cats outnumber humans six to one; so get ready to pet like you’ve never pet before.
    The old fishing village is currently home to only 22 people, who are all dwarfed by the army of 120 felines who unofficially rule the island. Much like Japan’s famed “Rabbit Island” (yes, that actually exists, too), the story behind this strange place has its roots in World War II.

    Could be interesting place for purry vaca – purrhaps Hemingway House as in Key West FL is more local for up close/purrsonal visit.

    Done JK. Not getting into it, but wondering if this includes all P&G products, you know the cute TV ads where they wash the birds that have been covered in oil and then release them. Well it’s Dawn which is P&G product. Hmmm …
