I had made the comment on Zoolatry's blog that while I know what filters she's using, she does much better work than me, and that well, Black Cats are harder to work with than Himmies because of the lack of contrast. She took it as a challenge and send me several nice treatments. I like this one the best I think (although wait until I unveil the Black Cat Pub one she do!)

Feline GPS: Whiskers help us figure out where we are in relationship to what is around us. Feline Vibrissae are not quite a GPS system for Cats, but according to Sandra Diaz-Vergara, veterinary dermatologist at Virginia Tech, cats use tactile orientation and must touch objects with their whiskers to transfer information. Vision-impaired cats from birth have longer whiskers to help them orient better.
"A cat that is born blind or has adapted to blindness will be a master at using its whiskers," says Tracy McFarland, veterinarian and owner of The Cat Doctor in Santa Clarita, Calif. "When I have a blind cat in my exam room, unless they are newly blind they are using whiskers to navigate."
More on Whiskers as Whisker Week continues tomorrow, here on House Panthers!
Help Higgins! Higgins, a beautiful 3 year old long haired House Panther is looking for a furever home in the Los Angeles, California, area. I must say, he is a very handsome Mancat and I'm told he's very lovable as well.

If you can let Higgins into your heart and your homes, please contact Midnight's Mom for more information.
Good Mews! House Panthers will be hosting the Carnival of the Cats #215, the weekend of April 27, 2008.
