Word & Wisdom of the Week

Word of the week:

Grimalkin

An old or evil-looking female cat. The term stems from "grey" (the color) plus "malkin", an archaic term for a cat. Scottish legend makes reference to the grimalkin as a faery cat which dwells in the highlands and it was also the name Nostradamus gave to his cat.

We've got an old "Grimalkin" she's 18 and her real name is Sybil!

Wisdom of the Week:

Do not meddle in the affairs of cats, for they are subtle and will p** on your computer - Bruce Graham

Sorry, had to change a word there, but very funny, very funny indeed - and so true...........
