Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Oh, that is just wonderful!

As our cat sits intently staring at our bird feeder outside the window, we tell her she's watching bird-feeder tv. But I'd never thought of putting the birds on an ipad!

Marvellous! Does she ever try to attack the screen? What a good idea to have the mirror so you can shoot her expression.

How funny! She goes from slight disdain to total intensity.

One of our cats watches telly intently. I used to think cats and dogs couldn't "see" tv images. Perhaps this always was a myth - or perhaps it was just the case with old cathode-ray tube tvs?

Awwww. Of course she sees!

Cats have habits, and they can get fixated on things. What I think is funny about them is that they don't seem to have short-term memories. They'll be doing something or other and will stop to lick themselves or something and completely forget what they were doing before.
