Random story...

When I was very little...
My sister came home from our cousins house with a ginger kitten. We called him Ginger.
The kitten had jumped off the doc by the cottage and become 'stuck' under it... where she had meowed herself mute waiting for rescue.
(they tore apart the dock... sigh)

When I was a little older... my Dad brought home a Basengi dog... a pure breed. It had a curled up tail... we called her "fanny"... go figure.
These are a "barkless" hunting dog... They simply do not bark. Cute as hell...lived a good long time and the stories are endless...
But the bottom line is... meowless cat... and a barkless dog.
My brother came home from university with a kitten.
Ginger and Fanny kinda raised her...
... and, you guessed it, she never made a meow... not in our house... not ever.
When she visited the neighbors... she meowed up a storm...
But at home... the pets didn't make noise.

Sweet deal ... :)

note to self: need a percy icon!!! :)
