Tater Tot enjoys hanging out in the kitchen at night when we get the music cranked up while making dinner. I think he likes watching the Daddy Circus.

Check out the NY Times story today on
hypoallergenic cats, if you can part with $4,000 and are willing to wait.

Since it announced the project in October 2004, the company, Allerca, of San Diego, says it has received inquiries from people in 85 countries seeking to buy a cat bred so that its glands do not produce the protein responsible for most human cat allergies.

“You’re not just buying a cat; it’s a medical device that replaces shots and pills,” said Megan Young, chief executive of Allerca. “At the same time, this is a living animal, so the well-being of our product comes before our customers. This is not some high-priced handbag that you put back on the shelf if it doesn’t match.”
Also, William Grimes had a hilarious article about his road trip with cats in the Times today. It stresses me out when I have to drive 3 miles to the vet with a cat in the car. A 1,500 mile roundtrip would have me seeking therapy.
