Or the cat is just using you to get some warmth. Laughing

One of them is currently lying on the floor on the other side of the room, he is lying on his back while impatiently wagging back and forth and screaming at the top of his lungs for me to come and scratch him (he repeats this every hour or so) If that's not needy, I don't know what is.

Maybe the cat is just using you. Suspect

He's not, if you knew him you would know that I'm telling the truth, he's not very 'catty'.

Have you read the Cats of Ulthar by H. P. Lovecraft? It's short but a good read for any cat enthusiast. Wink

As I said, he's not very catty. He came from a breeder (he's a blond norwegian forest cat), and was rejected by his family and thus only interacted socially with humans, which made him very social and has a lot of human characteristics. He is also very 'motherly' with the other cats, and treats them like children, even if they are trying to tear his fur off.

Just an idea that finally came to me. If Faq was changed to all caps this would not only be correct but would remove the possibility of North Americans being offended by the word. Frequently Asked Questions = FAQ

Thus the font itself would not need to be changed.

It's a picture, not a font. If you change it you'll have to modify every captions (like index, calendar, etc.) I certainly don't have the time to do that.

By the way our North American friends have to learn to live with the fact that the word "fag" is also slang for cigarettes, not just an offensive way to refer to homosexuals...

I'm sad that words like "gay" (and "fairy") are now used almost exclusively to refer to homosexuals (and sometimes are considered as being offensive). Thinking about this it's a good thing that we use the phrase "Robin Hood and his band of merry men" and not "Robin Hood and his band of gay men" (now that would have been confusing) but it's a pity that you can't say that you're "happy, merry and gay" without sounding like you're making your coming out.

If here at Belle Sakura Saloon we start "fixing" things because they might be construed as being potentially offensive then that would go far beyond mere political correctness. Now I can assure fellow posters that the fact that "faq" somehow looks like "fag" is in no way meant to offend anyone (as it is meant to be read as "faq"). There is absolutely no homophobia in this and I can assure you that a poster's sexual orientation is not relevant as far as this forum is concerned.

As a part-time gay, I'm not offended Laughing but, like I've said before, it does keep giving me the urge to go for a ciggie!

Because heroin is far too expensive these days

What is good for your health is usually incredibly boring. Sad but true.

My Cousin who was a very heavy smoker has not had a smoke since at least Thanksgiving a year ago and she is still fighting the urge.

Cara, obviously I know little about the graphics which is why I don't mess with them. I thank you for letting us know what it would entail. As long as people understand that that there should be no problem. I still haven't recuperated from being told that the word 'woman' is an insult. I always was taught to be proud of being a woman seems I should be ashamed.
