    Yes I did know that . The right side of the brain controls more of the creative side, which is why many artists and muscians are left-handed. The left side controls more of the analytical and scientific thinking, which is why I'm right-handed (and a ).

    So why does joey love everything RED?

    I found this also, but you can't believe anything on the internet.
    Can Cats See Colours?

    For a long time people assumed that cats could see only gray tones. In the meantime we have learned that they can distinguish between some colors: for example, red and green or yellow and blue. Colors do not play a major role in a cat's life. A cat's eye orients itself to light and dark. It acts like a camera. In bright sunshine the pupils contract; at dusk they expand and catch even the tiniest glimpse of light. In this way your cat sees about six times better than you do .Cats can also "hear" with their eyes. Cats' eyes have nerve cells that transmit to the brain sounds that the ears no longer perceive. That's how even blind cats can catch flies.

    Because Joey is extraordinary! That was a good site, gabriel. My kitties love the color Warm.

    Did you know: Pick any 3 digit number, where the first and last digits differ by two or more. Reverse the number (read it backwards), and subtract the smaller from the larger. Add this result to the reverse of the result.

    It will always be: 1089

    Did You Know: On most islands in the South Pacific, it is the custom to celebrate one's birthday on the first day of the month in which one is born. The Hallmark Company has introduced a marketing campaign to change that custom so as to keep demand for birthday cards more even throughout each month. The campaign is called, "You have a day -- keep it!"

    Did you know that if you get a bee sting or wasp sting, you should put a copper penny on it right away...it takes the sting out and swelling too. But if you are very allergic, do see a doctor and take benedryl.

    Did You Know: The latest fad for Japanese schoolgirls is leaving the tags on their new clothes, including the price tag. They can even buy "tag protectors" for about 2300 Yen (about $3.75) to cover the tags when washing their garments.
