A 2,000-year-old burial mound discovered in the area that’s now Illinois contained the remains of a young bobcat, new research reveals.

The ancient bobcat was wearing a special collar and was found in a ritual burial mound normally reserved for humans.

“It really looked like it had been buried not because it was a feral accessory for a human, but because it was, in some way, kind of respected on its own,” said study co-author Angela Perri, a zooarchaeologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany.

As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows,

cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.

Thanks to Robb and Regan for this reference.

I have posted before about craft-cat connections.  I do know someone who has knit objects from dog hair.  In this book, the projects incorporate or are totally composed of hair that your cat is no longer using.  Crafty recycling.

From the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, DC, again, click here to see the Asian fishing kittens which were recently born.  Unfortunately these lovely animals are endangered due to habitat destruction.

This is Maine Coon kittie, Sam Vimes lounging in the breakfast nook.  (My cats never climb on the furniture.)

Happy belated birthday to Geordi LaForge, born February 16, 2335 in Earth’s African Confederation.

Born in 2335? Well, I guess I actually do have time to bake him a cake.
