Letting your Cat pick your Mate?

So I started dating this guy a little over a month ago, and the biggest surprise thus far in our relationship is how well he gets along with the cats in my household. I know that there are people out there that truly are "cat people", and it reinforces my belief that animals, especially cats, are able to key in on whether someone is a good or bad person. It seems as though I have noticed a few areas in which my cats try to gauge whether or not my new beau is worthy of their attention. Those are a) his playfulness b) his attentiveness and c) his ability to be trained. As much as you may be thinking that it is I who is sizing my new boyfriend within these categories, but I assure you... really, it's just my cats.

Sabertooths Are The Greatest!

When I was a kid I loved going to the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. The sabertooths were my favorite. 


People always used to call them sabertooth tigers but then I found out that they weren't really tigers. The preferred nomenclature is "saber-toothed cat." Kinda dorky, but the animal is still wicked cool. 


Check out these teeth!
