This holiday season, it's raining cats and dogs -- at least in stores around town where presents for pet lovers abound.If you've got an animal lover on your gift list, why give him or her the same old scarf or bottle of fragrance when there are ceramic vases and cotton nightshirts, papier-mache clocks and woodcarvings, books and ties that pay homage to all things canine and feline?With pets in more than half of all American homes, gifts that show off a person's fancy for four-legged critters are thoughtful ways to say happy holidays.

There are plenty of ways to divide people: haves vs. have-nots, Democrats vs. Republicans, night owls vs. larks, rap vs. rock, fried vs. broiled. The list goes on, but there are also a few things almost everyone can agree on, and one is Grand Champion Blackrock Jungle Juice RN. He's known to his people by the simpler name Mufasa and he's the Bernese mountain dog that won the Best of Breed honors at the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. Most dog people, and probably a lot of cat people, too, have at least a vague understanding that the Westminster Dog Show is the World Series, Super Bowl and Triple Crown of canine accomplishment.

Three thousand miles away, the Ravens are preparing for a football holy war with the Oakland Raiders. But you, you're spending a morning with cats . . . and cat people.

I HAVE HEARD from the cat people, and the cat people are not happy.Apparently, the cat people are up in arms over a recent column in which I (quite sensibly, I thought) listed the virtues of dogs over cats.I forget exactly what was said in that column, but it was something about the country going to hell in a handbasket now that more people are choosing cats as pets.I also might have taken a few shots at cats for having zero personality, all the warmth of an eggplant and a predisposition to stalk schoolchildren, claw drapes and scratch furniture.

Grunwald, a Time magazine editor who led the publication's shift from conservatism to a more centrist view before becoming a United States ambassador to Austria, died of heart failure Saturday at his Manhattan home.

He ordered up Time's 1966 cover asking the question "Is God Dead?"

Your costume's ready, the candy dish is full, the jack-o'-lantern's been carved. Looking for that last little push to get you in the proper Halloween mood? Time to break out the DVDs. Movie-makers have been focusing on horror at least 1896, when French filmmaker Georges Melies cast himself as the devil in the short Le Manior du diable (The Devil's Castle). The main problem for horror-movie watchers is deciding which level of fear would be appropriate. Are you looking for something suitable for the entire family?

Hold the garlic for dogs, cats I heard that garlic could keep fleas from biting, so I put some in my dog's food for about a week. He became lethargic and couldn't even climb the lowest stairs. I thought this might be a reaction to the antibiotics I had him on to heal sores from the original flea bites. Both garlic and onions can cause anemia in dogs. Cats are even more susceptible. Always check with the vet before giving your pet any medicine or extra treats like chocolate or raisins, which are also toxic to dogs.

FIVE DAYS into the new year, and already we have a dispute in Charm City. Not the most serious of ones, mind you, but one that should concern us all. It's the great Cats as Public Menace brouhaha. Baltimore officials, to counter the danger of felines run amok, have decreed that cat owners must license their pets. And to show how kindhearted they are, those same bigwigs will allow cat lovers to get their licenses for free this month. After that, licenses will cost $10 for cats that have been spayed or neutered and $30 for those that haven't.

She owns dozens of cat toys, wears cat T-shirts and sleeps with a cat in her arms every night.Now she's upping the ante: she's forming a Howard County cat club because she feels cats here need an "advocate." Starting next week, the club will meet the last Monday of every month."We'll tell cat stories and we'll bring cat pictures and gossip about our cats, because cat people love to do that," she said.

On a recent visit to my mother's house, I received the depressing news that she has a new cat.The new cat replaces the old cat, which apparently grew tired of annoying people and simply disappeared.The old cat's name was Choo, and he sat on the corner of the living room couch for six years and glared at everyone.When he wasn't giving you the creeps with his stare, he was scratching the hell out of the furniture or dragging dead birds and mice into the house for a little snack.Yeah, he was a bundle of laughs, Choo.
