Animal Blogging

Some highlights.

Watson goes to stage.

As character actors go, he's pure bred. With greying jowls, moist eyes and one ear which seems to have fallen asleep while the other stands up, his face is a weather vain [sic] of inhuman emotion.

There have been practices this weekend, as Watson gets used to being led around the stage. But CanStage officials say there will likely be little else to do to prepare him for Thursday's opening (canstage.com). Because while this is his first curtain call, it's not his premier performance.

Since Watson was young, his owner, Caesar Sinclair -- a 54-year-old actor who left work at the liquor control board in hopes of finding stardom -- has brought him to film shoots. By 3, he was in the movies.


We'll be seeing him perform on Saturday and will surely post a review.

Meanwhile Oliver the cat is now adopting a very strange position for sleeping. I am not sure whether this has to do with his age (20 and a half) or some especially compelling odour on the throw he is sleeping on.

I can't see from the picture exactly how he is holding himself but weird position can indicate pain.

I think if you click on the picture you will get a larger version that makes it pretty clear; he is arched over facing forward with his nose pushed down into the throw. I did think it might be pain, but afterwards he was back into conventional positions.

You should submit this to the Carnival of the Cats.
