Inter-Species Office Helpers
These pictures from my friend Jean show her “gal Friday,” Elisabeth, watching her “office manager,” Lucky-B, do some filing. According to Jean, these two are actually friends. Elisabeth’s bed is on top of the filing cabinet and Mr. B often goes there for meetings or mutual discussion.
Kato, my cat, also enjoys opening file cabinets and sorting through files. He’s probably looking for information he can use to blackmail me for more tuna, catnip, and jazz CD's. . .
Speaking of cats doing office-type work: My friend Carl recently posted an entry at his LiveJournal about a cat who actually called 911 when his human needed help. Here's the Associated Press news story: Cat Calls 911 to Help Owner, Police Say.
Also from Carl’s LiveJournal, here’s another news item about two natural enemies becoming friends: Snake ‘Befriends’ Snack Hamster.
Thanks for the great photos, Jean!
Update: Many thanks to all of you who wished me a happy birthday! I just got back last night from a conference on the new, “emerging” paradigm of Christianity, with Marcus Borg (my favorite biblical theologian) and Walter Brueggemann. I rode down to the conference on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, with some friends from St. Luke’s. We had a great time, and I took lots of notes during the lectures – I’ll be blogging about it here, over the next several days.
