A Purr Out


Good morning.  Smitty here with a purr out about something of cat-aclysmic importance.  (Note:  Kitties do not like shouting.)

This morning while I was reading my email, I came across this interesting bit of mews, and I wanted to share it with all my cat-loving friends.  To quote:
The Zoological Society of London has launched its Cat Map, a global, searchable map of all the world’s cats. You can search for cats by age, gender, color, and name, and even add your own cat to the map, complete with a picture and description. The Cat Map was created to raise awareness of the London Zoo’s Tiger Territory, which opens on March 22nd.



Well, of course, my mom added Gracie and me to the map forthwith!  Here I am:


And here's Gracie!


Cool, huh?  Does that make us famous now that we're on the map?

And you can search for us if you like.  I'm feeling pretty special now that I have an internet purresence.
