Link Love Friday

Many of you may have wondered where I've been, and I've been busy reading and collecting links to great ecology, green, and health blogs and sites. Today I want to share some of my linky love with some of the ecology and green sites I've discovered plus a video from Viropop.

I subscribe to most of these, so you can imagine the reading that comes my way every week!

Here are some of my fav's:

Ideal Bite

Gaia

Eco Salon

Earth 911

Ecofriend


Earth Cinema Circle

Cats On Tuesday


Anela is once again happy as we've settled back into our routines, and so I don't have much of excitement to share with you about her. Life is GOOD!

However, I'd love to share this cool item I discovered online. It's for refined, discriminating cats such as Anela, aka Queenie. I think I might possibly have found a way for her to get interested in my blogging and computer world which she has always disdained.

This item is called Kit-In Box--basically a cat perch near your computer which allows your cat to watch what you're doing and to correct you if you're making mistakes or whatever else you're probably doing not to their liking.

Cats On Tuesday--Celebrity Cats

I've returned from my long journey several weeks ago, but it's taken me some time to catch-up again to my blog routine. One of the places I visited was the Hemingway Home in Key West Florida, and one of the funniest things was watching the celebrated Hemingway cats get photographed by tourists from all over the world, and the cats just kept sleeping and acting as if they didn't even notice!

Of course, these aren't the original cats owned by Hemingway, but the cat tradition lives on, and these celebrity cats are very well taken care of it seems. They even have their own cat houses in the backyard. The last photo is a painting of the original Hemingway cats on the wall of the old Hemingway House which you can tour.



" Ernest Hemingway was given a six-toed cat by a ship's captain and some of the cats who live on the museum grounds are descendants of that original cat. Key West is a small island and it is possible that many of the cats on the island are related. Our cats are not a particular breed, but appear to be a combination of various breeds-sort of "Heinz 57" if you will. They are all shapes, sizes, colors and personalities." This paragraph is from the website on Hemingway House where you can read all about the famous cats--sixty of them! Click here for the link.
