more about Manx cats

Characteristics and Temperament

The Manx is a mellow, even-tempered cat, friendly and affectionate. Its origins as a “working” cat are still strongly seen in the breed, and any Manx which lives an outdoor or outdoor/indoor life is a fierce, dedicated hunter. Many people call the Manx the “dog cat” because of its strong desire to be with its people. Manx cats will follow you about the house, “helping” with whatever you happen to be doing at the moment. Manx cats are not prone to restive movement, and even kittens like to curl up in a lap for a nap. Manx do like to get on things, and if you’re looking for your cat, look about the room at eye-level (yours, not the cat’s) on tables and the backs of chairs and on bookcases. Chances are, you’ll spot your cat pretty quickly.

The Manx voice is usually very quiet for its size. Even a female in full-blown heat doesn’t make very much noise at all. The Manx has a distinct “trill” which you most often hear from females talking to the kits, but with which they will reply to their people’s verbalizations as well. Your Manx *will* talk to you.

The “watch Manx” is a sight to behold: Many Manx are very protective of their home and any unusual noise or disturbance will cause a low growl and even an attack by a Manx that is very protective. Strange dogs are especially a target of attack.

Manx make good pets for younger children if they grow up with them, because of their even-temperedness. An older Manx may have some difficulty adjusting to the noise and quickness of children, however, since Manx generally prefer a quiet, settled environment. If your home is a quiet one, you’ll find that your young Manx quickly becomes accustomed to that peace and quiet, and simply slamming a door may startle the cat. For the most part, though, Manx aren’t timid cats, and will place a lot of confidence in their people’s reaction to events. A Manx that has been raised in a family environment will transfer easily to another home and remain a happy, playful cat.

If you decide on a show cat, you’ll find that most Manx adjust well to the activity of the show hall, if you begin showing them at the kitten stage. Some Manx actually love the attention they receive at a show, and enjoy meeting new people. It is rare for a Manx to “play” on the judging table however much they might chase toys and race about in your home. They much prefer “kissing up” to the judge, and will deliver “head-butts” to any judge who places his/her face within range.

Manx, unlike many breeds, may be shown for years – as long as they are willing to go and enjoy it, as a matter of fact. This is because the Manx matures slowly, and may take as long as five years to reach full growth and potential. This means that you may get many years of showing enjoyment out of your Manx, and it is conceivable that your cat could win more than one regional/national title as it gets better and better with the passing of time.

look at this monster – scary!!!!!

A RARE fossil of the largest marsupial to have ever lived from the Ice Age has been discovered at a remote cattle station in the Northern Territory.

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) received the large fossilised Diprotodon limb last week, after it was located at the very first Late Pleistocene megafauna site in the area.

Senior Curator of Earth Sciences, Dr Adam Yates, said staff at the MAGNT recognised the bone immediately as that of a Diprotodon,

“The Diprotodon was a giant four footed marsupial, distantly related to the wombat,” he said.

Baby Gabriel Trial Set to Begin

Jury selection has begun in the trial of the mother of an infant who was 8 months old when he was last seen almost three years ago. But the Baby Gabriel case is not a murder case. Elizabeth Johnson is facing charges of kidnapping, custodial interference and child abuse only.

No one has any idea if Baby Gabriel is alive or dead.

At one point, Johnson claimed that she had killed the child and put his body in a dumpster, but later changed her story and gave her son to a couple she did not know in San Antonio at the direction of a woman named Tammi Smith who wanted to adopt Gabriel.

I got a pretty Isis statue today

mine is similar to this. tomorrow when it is daytime I will take a picture of mine. she is so pretty!!!!!

http://www.egyptartsite.com/isis.html

http://www.resurrectisis.org/home.html

Isis (Ancient Greek: Ἶσις, original Egyptian pronunciation more likely Aset) is a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. She was the friend ofslavessinnersartisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers.[1] Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus’s mother was Hathor). Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.

The name Isis means “Throne”[citation needed]. Her headdress is a throne. As the personification of the throne, she was an important representation of the pharaoh’s power. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided. Her cult was popular throughout Egypt, but her most important temples were at Behbeit El-Hagar in the Nile delta, and, beginning in the reign with Nectanebo I (380–362 BCE), on the island of Philae in Upper Egypt.

In the typical form of her myth, Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the Sky, and she was born on the fourthintercalary day. She married her brother, Osiris, and she conceived Horus by him. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered by Set. Using her magical skills, she restored his body to life after having gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set.[2]

This myth became very important during the Greco-Roman period. For example it was believed that the Nile River flooded every year because of the tears of sorrow which Isis wept for Osiris. Osiris’s death and rebirth was relived each year through rituals. The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era.[3] The popular motif of Isis suckling her son Horus, however, lived on in a Christianized context as the popular image of Mary suckling the infant son Jesus from the fifth century onward.[4][5]

Jon Gosselin has been off the airwaves for a while now — and now his ex-wife Kate Gosselin will be off the small screen, too, following the cancellation of Kate Plus 8, announced Monday.

Jon, 34, told Radar he’s “very relieved” that the TLC show (originally Jon and Kate Plus 8, which debuted in April 2007) — because the eight kids he shares with Kate, 36, can potentially have a normal life sans TV cameras.

“I hope they can have more private family moments,” he said of twins Cara and Maddie, 10, and 7-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel.

“I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.

Unglued – Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions

Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between.

What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.

Filled with personal examples and Biblical teaching,
Unglued will equip you to:

  • Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your
    important relationships.
  • Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be
    honest but kind when offended.
  • Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly
    improve your communication.
  • Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff,
    explode or react somewhere in between.
  • Gain a deep sense of calm by responding

This is a picture i took for the Candy article.

the day started all right and then I got up!

we went to the Lachlan House 50th Birthday Celebration and it was good! everything was free except the food and drinks. Lily had a great time and ran around all arvo with Paige her friend. Paige won the jelly bean contest – think it was 950 or so so guessed and she was so happy she won! Congratulations!

we came home late afternoon and I should have had a nap but I didn’t and the day went downhill fast. me and Lily had words quite a few times. If I would have closed my mouth more often and not talked it would have been much quieter. just as well Lily loves me. I don’t love me.

she went to sleep a few hours ago and I am up waiting for the washing to finish. Steph was in her room while I was yelling and ranting – safest place to be.

Hope tomorrow is better!

we are going to Orange for the Spring Muster (for the Salvation Army). love being a salvo!!!!!
