The Gray Cat is a Good Cat

 Deng Xiaopeng had his most famous quote in 1961,  "It doesn't matter whether it's a white cat or a black cat, a cat that catches mice is a good cat."   White and black mix makes gray; gray cat Nikki is a good cat.

Nikki is enjoying her "good cat" reward.


Mary Jane wonders whether she could share the catch.


Nikki growls, Mary Jane stares.


Nikki finishes her "good cat" catch then tells Mary Jane how to be a good cat.

Happy Birthday Olivia

Mama Barbara writes,

"It was Olivia's 4th birthday last Tuesday.  She's an Election Day bunny! 

Here's to at least 4 more years, Olivia!"

Olivia is a happy house rabbit.  She has a very famous sister: Chu's Susie, the Best of Breed English Angora of the 2009 ARBA National Convention.   However, Olivia won't trade her good life for any glory or spotlight.
