Talk to a cat or dog owner and you'll probably get a different answer --
but has it ever been proven that felines actually excel over man's best

Is it crazy to try to sail the Atlantic on a raft? Maybe. Is it nuts to take such a chance? Perhaps. Is it totally insane to take two kittens with you for the trip? Yep! All of this actually happened in 1956 when a raft named the L'Égaré II was towed out of the harbor at Halifax, Nova Scotia and set adrift with four men and two cats on board. The feline crew members were Puce and Guiton.

One shop in the Scottish Borders learned that one the hard way when an 18-year-old cat decided to take up residence in the front window.

Cowbunga dog! (Cue the Beach Boys music!) Last weekend Huntington Beach, California, was host to the annual Surf City Surf Dog competition. Dogs of all shapes and sizes and their humans gathered in the shallow waves for a weekend of fun in the sun. The pooches got to show off their best moves to a panel of judges and cameras were on hand -- and mounted on boards -- to catch the action.
