    Nice one, Geoff. It's always worthwhile giving any stray dog or cat a new home.

    With cats, we prefer getting them as kittens (as kittens are *so* cute) and as young as possible. That way we can, as far as possible, instil our habits/way of life into them, so that they become 'ours', as opposed to us looking after what has essentially already become someone else's pet, thus formed its own habits - if you get me?

    It's rather like adopting kids. If we were ever to do that, we'd always go for a baby (as young as possible), rather than a child or teenager, for the same reasons

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Poor little things, foxes are devious buggers.

    Ours have their own room in the house, it's furnished with chairs and a table and they have the run of it, we just go in to feed them, tidy up and for a cwtch, they couldn't be more pampered.
