No, it’s not the first line of a bad joke. According to the Daily Mail:
Bus drivers have nicknamed a white cat Macavity after it has started using the No 331 several mornings a week.
The feline, which has a purple collar, gets onto the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus at the same stop most mornings – he then jumps off at the next stop 400m down the road, near a fish and chip shop.
I don’t quite get the nickname, but the rest of it is oddly fascinating. I can totally imagine Kahlua getting on the Number 11 and heading over to a diner.
Another bit of insight into animal languages from this AP story:
Nuthatches appear to have learned to understand a foreign language – chickadee. It’s not unusual for one animal to react to the alarm call of another, but nuthatches seem to go beyond that – interpreting the type of alarm and what sort of predator poses a threat.
I’m too busy to say anything about this Top 10 list of hybrid animals, other than “Maaaaahm, can I get a zony? Pleeeeease?”
I am also a big winner, and I finished my story. I shall not hide it because I like attention. It can use a ton of editing, though, and input from people who know more about space science than I do. Anyway,
I hope that works!!
