I didn't know you had a siamese kitty Fan. I have never seen this one before. I had one years ago and her name was Tasha.

she is a rescue from last year, she showed up and hung around for a month, she had a hurt back paw, limped all over, it took me 3 weeks of slowly approaching being as nice as I can before she would accept food from me (after I left). She eventually let me scratch her tummy, and she has been my girl ever since. I have a touch you know, kind of a cat whisperer. All our cats are rescues, all of them from either the "street" directly, or from a shelter where they would have been put down the next day, last appeal sort of thing.

She is Chelsea, named after the place, not the Clinton, my Dad has a special attachment to the place, she was named in his honour.

She is 3 years old or so. Rocky behind her is my old girl, she is almost 15, we rescued her from a farm that was going to liquidate all 10 of the litter unless people took them that night. We adopted Rocky and her now-passed brother Castro then.

They both give me endless affection and make life more worthwhile. Look at those big blue eyes, how can you help yourself? I am such a softy.

A pet that spits and claws at a friendly hand, then yowls in the yard until dawn raises an ungracious thought: Are cats really domesticated? Scientists say yes, but they also admit they know little about how and when felines came to live with people.

Now scientists excavating a Stone Age village in China have recovered a rare and valuable snapshot of cats in the early stage of their relationship with our own species. The researchers say the new findings are the oldest known indication of cats benefiting from their association with people, which is the first step on the road to domestication.

"What's really exciting about this study is it's the first evidence that shows us the processes by which cats came to live with humans," says Fiona Marshall of Washington University in St. Louis, an author of the new study. "Clearly they were the animals of farmers" – unlike dogs, which were domesticated by hunter gatherers thousands of years before cats and humans began their complex alliance.
