:lol: He sounds lovely Chris - cats may be easier to cuddle but dogs are there just 'cos they love you and not 'cos they want a warm up...
Gotta love cats - they're horrible little egoists but they have such style :wink:

Thanks for the article Tony! :D I've never read that before. It was great. We're cat people too. Now, saying that I have to also say that we love dogs. It's just that we love other people's dogs. We did own a Samoyed for several years. He was a rescue and hands down the most loving, well behaved dog I'd ever known. We lost him early this year to old age. :( But, we won't be getting another dog. I always felt like he never got enough attention, which made me feel guilty. Not to mention the cost and work that you need to put into a dog is substantial! I could have fed a small nation on the grooming costs alone. :shock:

Rhianna was involved with Firefly?? I was wondering why so many of you were interested in the Serenity comics! Lol. I loved Firefly but the emphasis was always on Joss Whedon, so I never bothered to find out who else was involved with it. What did she do?

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but Wow, ty. I have saved the article in my text documents. I had a feeling he liked cats due to Deaths' reactions to cats and now it comes together. Nothing wrong with a good dog either, when I was little we had a Cat first, then got a dog. OMG what a comedy routine they were together. :lol: :lol: We have a Mess of barn cats (outside) and two completely neurotic cats inside the cabin who ... oh what would be the word... well, suffice to say that they are kept separate. What a chore that is too. One cannot stand Any other cats and the other is Afraid of all other cats but, for some unfathomed reason wants desparately to be friends or at least share the same space as the other. :lol: :?

Baby Bear, the fraidy cat will fling her Huge fat body at the door of Momma Cat, (see how inventive we are with names???) until my bedroom door opens and Momma Cat will then climb to the top of the closet cupboard and stay there until Baby Bear is forcibly removed. I suspect that when we are not home, they play about and have far more fun than we can imagine.

Reading the bit about the cat sitting in TP's Drawer while he writes is a Hoot! I just adore the man, his wife and his daughter. Even More now. :D
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

:D :D :D

I just tried Google Images for Lyn, and there's nowt. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

She's obviously a very private person. Neither she or their daughter wanted to appear in the Alzheimer's programme that Terry did for the BBC recently.

I'm pretty sure that Terry's daughter came along to some of the early Clarecraft events with him. :D

Only a long term cat feeder ( the word owner is,in this context,meaningless)could have written Greebo-the distilled essence of tomcat.
We too are serial cattists-they appear at the back door,looking to be one more missed meal away from death and stare meaningfully at you until you get the hint and put out some food--two weeks later (with a dose of Front Line and a shot of wormer) they are competing with you for bed space,the chair by the radiator,food (Esme W. is especially fond of chicken,Lucozade (..?????..) cold tea and left-over cereal milk-late & lamented Ogg (old Oggle was my favourite ) -a particulaly derelict example-would follow a moroccan woodbine round the room,sitting on each recipients chest and inhaling deeply-I suspect it eased her arthritis,Mewsli & Alley are both desperate for affection but much given to dribbling and daft as a box of rocks

She was also at one of the early Wincanton events, Terry introduced her as a single daughter of a multi-millionaire and then said he was keeping a close eye on all of us. :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I remember reading an article Rhianna Pratchett wrote for Hotdog magazine about fantasy films where she described Conan as a Marvel Comics creation! Being a huge Robert E. Howard fan and a bit of a pedantic tit at the time I took great exception to that :wink:
