As may be observed, I have changed the heading of my blog. It may be altered in detail later on, but I thought that it was time for the look to be updated. I have never worried too much about the appearance of the site, but decided that some cats needed to be included who have not been hitherto.
It would be more interesting if I could announce that a new era has been inaugurated. But, in fact, life is not very much like a calendar: few of its events occur at the beginning or end of each year or month; a century’s first period has more in common with the previous century’s last than with the new one’s later years. Life has brought me new cats, while taking away others; it has bestowed great changes on some who remain, while leaving others as they were.
But my blog’s new look represents the beasts who have influenced me, and who will continue to do so. And that, I suppose, is a good reason to commemorate them, after all.
