At first, I thought it said "safe from 13 shoes," and I wondered who was missing a foot? smiley - huh Then I saw that it was size-13 shoes, and I wondered if they belonged to lulu the Elephant.

I would not want to be a cat. Imagine being expected to catch and eat mice with their long, icky tails! smiley - yuk I will grant you that mouse ears and eyes are cute and adorable, but the tails are revolting! smiley - cross And what's with the pink legs and paws? Whoever designed them was not thinking straight. The tail is as long as the body proper, which means that it can be grabbed by whichever predator is in pursuit. A major design flaw if you happen to be a mouse. But the ability to catch mice and rats in he Egyptians' granaries was the thing that got cats their jobs, not to mention credit for being divine.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, when European explorers happened upon Egyptian tombs filled with mummified cats, they imagined that there must be some medicinal benefits to the mummified beasts. This was a delusion, but that didn't stop the Europeans from cashing in. smiley - erm

Really, it's almost a miracle that this world works as well as it does, given the design flaws....

That has been set to music

In the Arctic, where bees cannot survive, flies do a lot of pollination of flowers.

Maybe the Egyptians turned cats into Gods for the very reason they protected the granaries (and maybe grandaderies?).

Some lizards have a neat trick of discarding their tails, is attacked. "Mine is a short and sad tail,"to quote Alice in Wonderland (or was it through The Looking Glass?).
