Passing by the book shop in Haworth, I saw this cat sitting there 'proudly'...
Have you seen BBC's Horizon's cat story? if not, still on iplayer.
When you ask your dog:"Do you love me?" Your dog would "Woof, woof... YES! I DO", in a not very charming voice. If you ask your cat:"Do you love me?" You cat would " Miaow, of course, darling. (when I need youWink) Answers you sweetly. "Where is my favourite food then?" You read the message from your cat's eyes, you rush to the cupboard or fridge to fetch whatever your cat likes. It seems that you just realise:"Oh.. you must be hungry sweetheart, whatever you call your cat.... where have you been?..." You serve your cat, watching him or her ...eating ... you both are satisfied. Well, that's part of what the scientists were trying to tell us..."Dog loves you, cats don't". Unfair, we still believe that our cats love us. Let's hope that they've got it wrong. I did read about a black family cat, he decided that he was the daughter's cat. When the daughter moved from the north part of the country to the south, the cat set off to look for her. It took the cat months, nobody knew how he found her. It seemed nearly impossible, he had to cross a long iron bridge with heavy traffic. ( that's the only way, unless the cat can fly)Grin I couldn't remember the route now, but eventually he found her at her stairs case, nothing changed, settled with her, only one thing, he didn't like cat food anymore...Grin... I don't think this cat will follow me...

Great images Jasmine, the debate of cat v dog is one that will run forever, love your story here

As Winston Churchill once said 'Dogs look up to us, cats look down on us, pigs treat us as equals'.

I like v2 the best. No doubt it is the CATalogue

A proud cat, indeed. It must be highly intellectual. Great shots, reminded me a poem from Michael Hamburger.
