If you have cat(s), you know how clever they are when it comes to finding weird places to sleep. But there's nothing like finding your cat snoozing in the sink, in your shoe, in the clean laundry basket (gee, thanks for replacing all the pet hair lost to the washer!). It never gets old! So here are 25 cats who have found the perfect place to relax -- and look goofy at the same time.
Readers, please send twig (firstname.lastname@example.org) images and stories for the ongoing Plantidote of the Day series. In exchange, you'll win undying fame in the form of a hat tip! Plants growing in your garden, your house, or neighbor's yard, plants from the forest or farmers' market, plants you preserved, plants you prepared (wine; cider; tea; dried beans), plants you harvested (grains; chantrelles), plants you picked (flowers), plants you dried (herbs), plants you covet or hope to grow someday. Herbal remedies, propagation tips, new varieties, etc.. And if you can, include some solid detail about the plant, too -- a story, the genus and species, or where you got the seeds, or the recipe, or your grandmother gave it to you. Or challenge us with a "Name That Plant" mystery entry ... And please feel free to add corrections and additional information in the csomments.
