    Peering over the edge, this kitten looked too scared to clamber out of the loft. Gingerly Bella takes a step forward as she carefully tries to make her way down the steps with Kimba lurking behind her. As the six month old kitten climbs carefully over the edge, she glances up at the white cat who is watching her closely preparing to pounce. hen, just as she prepares to take her fifth step, Kimba reaches out playfully with a left paw and prods Bella's rear legs sharply. The terrified kitten - who was not injured - is sent tumbling down...

    War is a terrible thing: Sometimes you have to take the life of your fellow man in the most brutal and extravagant ways...and you just don't have a good enough weapon to do it as hard as you want. That's when you start strapping every weapon you have to every other weapon you have, and hope that physics is in a good enough mood today to let you fire knives out of your machine gun.

Where the fur was is red and moist. The bald area looks like you had put a ruler or something down, drew it off and stripped away the fur- it's that even. He is staying off by himself underneath a...

    The illegal immigrant allowed to stay in Britain partly because he owned a cat was given a police caution for shoplifting, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. Ranzo Avila, who was at the centre of a row among senior Tories, overstayed his student visa but was allowed to stay in Britain after an immigration judge ruled in his favour in 2008. He concluded that the Bolivian’s right to family life would be breached because he was in an established relationship — reinforced by the fact that the couple had bought a cat. Immigration court records showed that he first came to...

    Black cats may be unlucky, but what about a glowing cat? Phosphorescent felines were created by Mayo Clinic researchers to help in the fight against AIDS in both cats and humans. The cats were genetically engineered to carry a protein that defends them from infection by the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), the cat version of HIV. The cats glow because of a jellyfish gene inserted along with the FIV-resistance gene. If the genetically modified mouser glowed an eerie green, the researchers knew it was also resistant to FIV. "One of the best things about this biomedical research is that it...

OHS staff were already scheduled to go pick up the cats on Thursday from the owner, who was overwhelmed by the number of cats -- about 20 -- that were living in the apartment. Unfortunately, that...

Daniel Schlicksup, who was a global tax strategy manager for the company from 2005 to 2008, alleges that the company wrongly attributed at least $5.6 billion in profits from sales through an Illinois-based warehouse to its unit in Switzerland in order to lessen its tax burden and increase earnings.

    Long after questions were first raised about the overuse of powerful CT scans, hundreds of hospitals across the country needlessly exposed patients to radiation by scanning their chests twice on the same day, according to federal records and interviews with researchers. Performing two scans in succession is rarely necessary, radiologists say, yet some hospitals were doing that more than 80 percent of the time for their Medicare chest patients, according to Medicare outpatient claims from 2008, the most recent year available. The rate is typically less than 1 percent, or in some cases zero, at major university teaching hospitals. Next...

    Strange as it sounds, the question has been thrown around in previous years and even studied by scientists. A recent write-up on the website Improbable Research revisits whether cats with darker coats wreak more havoc on their owners' immune systems. Pet dander, skin flakes, saliva and urine can aggravate owners' allergies and asthma, but for cats in particular, a specific protein called "Fel d 1" is a common culprit. It's secreted by cats' salivary and sebaceous (or oil) glands, so when a cat grooms itself, it spreads the allergen to the outermost surface of the fur, increasing human exposure to...

This could be the reason the dog feels the need to sneak up upon the cat as it did. It's my guess that the dog is either thinking she must defend her...
