The hottest creature in the country—the cat!

No, we don’t mean that the cat needs an ice bath nor that it is the latest model on the catwalk. We mean that, among pet owners, cats are now the most popular, having finally lapped dogs in the race for America’s affections: there are officially more cats than dogs in American homes. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, there are 81.7 million cats and only 72 million dogs. However, there are more dog owners than cat owners—surely a testimony to the cat lovers’ desire for more than one feline!

Not a make-do life!

During these weeks of cold, snow and ice, indoor projects are a great option.  Young or old, male or female, there is a hobby out there for everyone.

These days, men are getting in on more and more of the traditional crafts—for instance, there is a new release called Knitting with balls: a hands-on guide to knitting for the modern man by Michael DelVecchio, 2006. Also suggested for the male types (but good for females, too) is The boy mechanic makes toys: 159 games, toys, tricks, and other amusements, 2006.
