SIBERIAN CAT
OH NATURE, YOU ARE JUST TOP-NOTCH!

Mittwoch, Oktober 12th, 2011

Sounds too good to be true. Just came across the Wiki article on Siberian cats. They bring two assets to the table that captivate me:

1) They look amazing (very similar to ‘Topsy’, my cat I grew up with)
2) Even though there is no profound scientific proof, it looks like the Siberian cat has hypoallergenic qualities. That would mean no itchy nose & no sneezing (apart from the daily dose of exhaust fumes and dust mites).

Sounds like a perfect match to me!

OH NATURE, YOU ARE JUST TOP-NOTCH!

Utterly influenced by David Attenborough and my camp holidays over the last years, I am thinking of establishing a little series here featuring some phenomena that wonder woman mother nature has to offer.

Starting off with these amazing wasps’ nests from South America: Depending on the wasp species the construction and appearance of the nest varies (left: SW Brazil / right: NW Brazil)
