Bit of a meme on grumpy cats and ugly dogs come to that. Shame that we anthropomorphise  them.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

Why is it a shame? It brings love and comfort to both :)

Maybe but the cats probably aren't grumpy. Well no more grumpy than any cat.  :smiley:

How can we judge a dog pretty or ugly - that's really up to other dogs.

A Moggie is a mouse or a creepy crawly where I come from :)

Round here Moggie/Moggy for cat used to mean you were a Scouser or descendant thereoff althouht the cat varient is more common these days I think.

Thanks - fascinating. Perhaps dropping 'catcher' was akin to the warships now known as 'destroyers'. They were originally called 'torpedo boat destroyers' having been specially developed to be fast enough to catch the TBs. Not sure when the name got changed, but pretty sure it was before WW1

They, sometimes, are wabbies, around here....
As you slide down the banister of life.
May the splinters never point in the wrong direction.
