I am not a cat blogger.

What, on earth, would make anyone think that I blog about cats? Have I ever blogged about cats? I am allergic to cats. I sometimes start sneezing as soon as I walk into a room that has a cat in it.

Before I realized how allergic I was, I was at my parents' and the cat was in bed with me at night, and I had difficulty breathing. Another time, my brother's cat slept on my neck, and I woke up with a red, itchy face and neck. (Washing it off immediately with soap and water and then taking some benadryl made life bearable.)

So, no thanks, I don't want to join the cat bloggers network!

I bet you had the word "cat" in one of your blogs.

You're right.

On March 27, 2005, I had a post about an animal I saw in Brazil that was the size of a cat.

On July 11, 2005, I posted a link to some Microsoft Haiku and noted that a commenter had posted some cat haiku.

That was all I could find in my archives.
