Then a ginger and white tabby cat named DeBeau moved in next door. He apparently had his own agenda in mind when he arrived.

Scent Hounds Are All Ears

For scent hounds who are known for their larger than average 'drop ears,' it begs the question: "What's up with those dumbo-size auricles?

About a hundred stray and semi-feral cats roam the vermilion walkways of Beijing's 500-year-old Forbidden City.

The Owl And The Pussy Cat

Remember that old nonsense rhyme about The Owl and the Pussy Cat? The pair started out by going to sea together and ended with dancing by the light of the moon.

They were worried about the cat's welfare, right up until they noticed that she already had a caretaker -- a crow.
