In a post of Footiam I read about a game: a Chinese Astrology site. There I read that this year is a year of the Brown Cow. Than, because I was born in a year of Ox, the forecast for this year for me is not good. So I wrote in my Facebook page that I'm sad about it.
Here I post the conversation with one of my Facebook friends about it:
-This got my wondering, never heard of the Chinese sign Cow. It should be Ox, and this year is the year of the OxSo, I read in the dictionary about it and found that
-The sign is Ox but female. Female of Ox has to be Cow or not?
-Not sure, I don't think so: "Oxen may comprehend both the male and the female". A man cow is a bull, female cow = cow.
Ox - cows = different 'species' ;-)
But not one to nit-pick
-Mmmm... something is wrong with the translation from Chinese, I think... Or our mentality is not the same with Chinese mentality...
I'm not so expert in English, so allow me a curiosity: if bulls and pxes are different species, what is the name of missis Ox? :-)))
-English is my second language too (Dutch). Mrs Ox = Mrs Ox I think ;-)
Ox is -bull;
-any representative of bulls-family
Bull is -bull;
-any representative of males of big animals (like whales, alligators)
So, Ox is the best word for the cause. But the year is a year of the female of the Ox. Is her name not Cow?

It is interesting to notice where the birds sleep in the town. We used to walk on the seaside of Salerno in the evening for some time. There are some big trees among all that incalculable plants there. These trees are preferite of the birds. Sparrows, I think. They were invisible in the night but they love to speak before they asleep. The noise they create with discussing their problems is so loud that it's unpossible to stay near these trees.
There are many rats in the streets of Salerno. They are not afraid of the persons and they know to walk from one tree to the other walking on the branches (we've seen it with our eyes), so I think the birds are afraid of the rats too.
By the way, I don't understand why they, rats, feel so good there because the town is clean enough and the municipality makes much tokill them. But...
Well, when I went to Salerno some days ago, I've seen an other place for overnight. Those were pigeons. They were sitting on the fence with more or less the same distance one from an other. And those on the "floor" slept too! I've never seen such a meeting in tis place. It's a preferite place for dog-owners and homeless persons (there is water there) and they come often to eat with their bags there.

Did you ever think how the cats born?
As for me, I thougt, I knew it always. I thought, mother cat makes them. Personally I've never seen how it happens. I've seen how the doggies come to see the light only. But I've never seen how cats do it. I thought, the same way, more or less.
But I was not right. It's not so.
The cats born from the eggs.
1 cat from 7 eggs.
Don't believe me? Look at these photos made by my internet-friend from Lithuania, Vera.

1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.
2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid. You may need to stand on the lid.
4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times This provides a 'power-wash' and rinse'.
6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift the lid.
8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.
9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

I like this photo (in the bottom) and turned to see it diferent times. We have not snow here and we canot even go out for a walk because it rains all days without stop. So Stassi is sleeping all the days.
She doesn't likes Murka in the last period. They were never good "neighbours" but 2 months ago happend this situation:
we picked up olives and Stassi was with us. Murka came with us in the morning and then in the afternoon. She comes sometimes with us, specially when we go for a walk with Stassi. This time she went to remember us that it's high time to eat. Stassi did not understand her.
At that moment passed relatives of my husband near us, that turned home through our territory. Man and woman. The real owners of Murka. In sense that they took her in their home when she was a kitten. But she don't want live with them and comes always to us because they don't like animals generally and killed her kittens at her eyes. After that she practically lives with us, in our yard. But visits them to find something to eat if she wants something "special" like fish (I don't eat fish).
So, Murka saw these persons passing near us and... went away with them.
It is incredible, but Stassi set down, opened the eyes and the mouth with the expression of greatest astonishment. This cat went away with strange persons!!!!! Traitor!!!
Imagine, Stassi didn't want to see Murka more in the house after that, and drove her out every time she wanted to enter. Now the situation is some better for Murka but Stassi doesn't like her and does not alow her to eat here.

Maybe you think that the life of a cat is only pleasures... I know, some of you tell it to other persons. But a cat has too many tasks
One has to study day and night because his/her human-friend has different exams in January

Other has to control what these stupid humans want to eat. Did you know that they eat everything they see on the table! But sometimes the foods have not good quality -and they do not notice it's bad smell! And the cat has to control it at their place.
Ah, after all cats need to have some relax in the yard...

But what you can find there! No one calm moment in the life! If there are not stupid humans nearby, you will find not less stupid dogs.

There are many animals that humans did not know to exist till the 2008. It's a pleasant fact, I think. From other side, we are destroying this planet even without knowing it's populations.
On the photo from Wikipedia is Leptotyphlops carlae the smallest existant snake. It is blind and the adults are about 10 cm long. By the way, biologist S. Blair Hedges is a person that discovered about 80 new species!
The other interesting new species of ant were found near Manaus. Martialis heureka is it's name. There were known only 3 ants of this species but 2 of them were lost because become dry and broken. This is completely new species, new branch of ants. They are so difficult to find while they are blind, subterranean, predatory ants. Photo from Science Daily.
An other discovery of this year is Tridacna costata, a gian clam. It's shell can arrive 200 kg! I could not imagine that something like this can exist on the earth else! The photo is from BBC News and there is an article for those who wants to read more.
I thought there are only this types of animals to discover (insects, fishes...). But I was not right. This year were discovered new birds and even mammals ( Carpomys melanurus, a rat)!
