During July our Featured Topic is about our cat
friends and those morsels of food they simply cannot
resist (you know the ones that mysteriously appear
on the Guardian's grocery list). Sorry pups,
but everyone knows that a dog will eat just about
anything while cats are much more particular about
the food they eat. So instead of our
traditional article we've decided to have a
contest in which kitties will have a chance to
submit their four most favorite things to
out the contest details such as start and end
dates as well as rules, please visit the Here

dogs, in which physical characteristics have been suppressed
or bred out to suit individual breeds for specific purposes
such as endurance in sheepdogs or speed in greyhounds, cats
retain the same basic features of their skeletons across
all breeds except for one or two oddities like the Manx and
the Japanese Bobtail. Again, compared with dogs, cats
develop physically within a fairly restricted range from about
8 to 15 lbs. in the case of non-altered males and from 5.5 to
10 lbs. for females. The average cat measures about 12
inches at the shoulder and about 31 inches from head to
tail. Putting it another way, all domesticated cats are
basically the same shaped and cat sized, whereas dogs come in
all shapes and sizes.
The Encyclopedia of The Cat, Michael Pollard 2001
A dog's scent organ (inside his nose) is about four times
larger than a human's, and a dog's sense of smell is about 50
to 100 times more powerful than ours!
