  4 October 2007, on the occasion of World Day for the Animals, we were at kindergarten De Ekkelhof, Drouwen with Galaxy, the kittens of the I-litter and our New Foundlander Chérie. Click the picture below for more photos of our relaxed stud and brave kittens together with adorable toddlers.

  The kittens of our H- and I-litter had the honour to be proclaimed by our veterinarian 'patient of the week' (in this 'patients'). Every week a report about one of the patients appears at the website of 'Arts & Dier'. Click the photo below to read the report (sorry, only Dutch, but there are pictures too).



Chinese cats grow 'wings'

Tom cats in Sichuan province in southern China have sprouted wing-like growths on their backs, which locals are attributing to the hot summer weather and the romantic attentions of females.

One animal started to develop the "wings" during a period of hot weather in Sichuan, a large province in southern China where a devastating earthquake struck this spring.

Although the growths appear fluffy, they contain bone. But veterinary experts say that despite the hard inner core, the flaps do not harm the cat's quality of life or safety.

Several animals were photographed with the furry protuberances by a local newspaper photographer.

"At first they were just two bumps, but they started to grow quickly, and after a month there were two wings," said one cat's owner, who was only identified as Feng.

"Many female cats in heat came to harass him, and then the wings started to grow," she told the local Huashang News.

Although Feng attributed her pet's condition to the stress of a feline love life and the hot Sichuan summer. However, scientists said the wings had a less romantic explanation.

In fact, the hairy growths probably developed because of unusual grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson though t about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
