Gray Cat smells like sun-dried sheets

That's the best I can do after spending about 15 minutes yesterday morning after I woke up around 8:30 a.m. with my nose nuzzled in her neck fur.

I decided that once and for all I was going to really try to answer one of Flautist's insistent questions about Gray Cat's smells. 

Back story: about two months ago she asked me what Gray Cat's feet smelled like.

I made a good faith effort, I really did, to try to pin it down and give her an answer, but after about 10 minutes patiently exhaling, waiting, and then sniffing her toe and palm pads as carefully as I could, was only able to reply, "They don't have any smell at all. None. Zero."

That was absolutely true.

They still don't, I just checked.

But I digressed.

How does an indoor cat smell so darned good?

I mean, sure, I always have the windows open and she spends plenty of time out in front of the house in her tent, but still.

I hadn't let her outside or opened the windows for a week as of this morning, it's been so hot and humid outside and I'm still a little gun-shy about getting into her tent seeing as my anaphylactic attack — it began almost exactly a week ago to the minute, last Sunday night at precisely this time — seemed to begin as I was lying in the tent with her.

No answer for some mysteries.

The way we like it.

Electric Guitar T-Shirt actually plays


From A Must Need : "We've all played air guitar or at least seen someone play air guitar. What about shirt guitar, though? Well, this shirt will allow you to do just that. There's a guitar on the front of this T-shirt and it actually plays. Not only that, but also there's an amp built into the shirt. It should be noted, though, that this is no professional quality guitar."


"Its essentially a novelty item so don't expect to hit the stage playing rock guitar using just this shirt. That said, you can sure crank out plenty of power chords on this thing. The guitar and amplifier are both removable so you can wash the shirt without damaging the electronics. A great gift for a rocker or music fan."


Details and Features:

• Plays all major chords

• Mini guitar amp speaker clips to your belt
