After 11 years, I like to think I can read my cat, Lucky. By the tone of her whine or her body language, I can pretty much determine when she wants me to make room for her to share the couch, when she wants me to refresh the decorative crystal floating candle bowl she has decided is her water bowl, and when she wants to chase after a ribbon. I especially love the subtle but indignant little noise she makes when I haven't obeyed her wishes, and the purr that can turn around my mood even on the most trying days.

On its release in 1961, Enzo Ferrari called the Jaguar E-Type “the most beautiful car ever made.”  Wisely, Jaguar decided that its alphabetic successor, the F-Type, wouldn't be a replacement for its iconic forebear. Rather, this new, low-slung two-seater is a bold statement of what's new, modern, cool and sexy. Driving it is to understand the definition of thrilling. Oh sure, it's also a luxury sports car: There's that tastefully refined, leather-clad interior and posh, toggle-rich cockpit (using only the finest materials and metals, of course)

FALLS VILLAGE, Conn. -- If you're allergic, you'd better hold this story a little farther away than usual. There's a lot of fur in this one.Jeanne Toomey has 446 cats!That means her household contains 1,784 paws, 446 elegant and eloquent tails, 892 pointed but fuzzy ears and enough feline nonchalance to float an ark. The word is also out in Litchfield County's mouse community: Visiting Belden Street can endanger your health.But Ms. Toomey's place is more than a catnip salesman's idea of nirvana.

NEW YORK -- David Bowie has been a rock god, a philosopher of the pop avant-garde, an actor, a talent scout. But he has a little trouble taking seriously the job description for his new gig: curator of the first High Line Festival. "I love that word `curate,'" he said with a slight sarcastic chuckle. "One of the definitions is someone who oversees a zoo." To put together the High Line, an 11-day series of music, film, comedy and art that begins on Wednesday with a performance by Arcade Fire at Radio City Music Hall, Bowie said he followed his own tastes, booking old and new friends like Laurie Anderson, TV on the Radio and the British comedian Ricky Gervais.

Children know it as the "M.E.O.W. Bus," but it has nothing to do with cats. It's a museum, classroom and playhouse on wheels, a bright blue school bus that makes the rounds year-round at five Annapolis-area public housing neighborhoods, providing education and fun for children ages 3 to 14. "We just encourage learning," said Margaret Dowsett, assistant program manager for the Museum Education on Wheels (M.E.O.W.). "The program encourages them to think for themselves and validates their creativity."

"What do you want me to do with him if he passes away?" the pet sitter asks, pen hovering over her clipboard as she sits at the kitchen table. "Not to freak you out or anything, but it's a standard question." Still, I'm freaked out. The pet sitter isn't. "I've heard it all. One guy wanted me to take everything out of the freezer, wrap the cat in a towel and put him in there." I stare at my new, shiny stainless steel refrigerator. A side-by-side. I've always wanted one. But the freezer compartment is smaller than my old one, and the cat, Binky, weighs 14 pounds.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | June 5, 2012
To a building, the high schools in Harford County that have been built, rebuilt or wholly refurbished over the past several years are fine examples of modern institutions of learning. Though the various construction projects were accomplished with varying degrees of difficulty, some self-inflicted and some unforeseen, the results have been commendable. The new Bel Air High School is as nice as any of the new schools, and a lot more flashy than most schools anywhere in the region, a reality belied by the spartan sign for the school at its main entrance.

IN four years the catamaran fleet at the West River Sailing Club in Galesville has gone from a probationary group of eight sailors to a full-fledged armada of 18. At a time when families seem to be getting busier and busier, it's unusual to see a fleet expand with such speed. "They've grown so quickly, that this past spring we had to lease more space for them to keep their boats," said Teri Nilsen, the commodore of West River Sailing Club - a no-frills yacht club that has been around since 1930.

America's only national tour of the hugely successful musical Cats - the 25th-anniversary edition - lands on its feet at the Hippodrome Theatre tonight for a run of eight performances. Though The Phantom of the Opera (also by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber) broke its record just last night to become the longest-running production in Broadway history, there's no denying the lion-sized paw prints Cats has left on the cultural landscape. The story of a group of felines who congregate in a junkyard to choose one cat to be born again, Cats was unique, among other things, for its gigantic props, its use of song and dance in every scene, its less-than-labyrinthine plot, its expansion of the play into the aisles and its status as progenitor of such "megamusicals" as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and The Lion King.

Nine-year-old Katya McKenzie tapped a plastic stick with fluorescent, dangling feathers against the entrance to a red, L-shaped tunnel. "In here, Boris. In here," she coaxed her prizewinning Russian Siberian cat. Boris had already jumped through plenty of hoops - also weaved around polls, climbed ramps and barreled through straight tunnels - in training for this weekend's agility contest at the NovaCats Cat Club's regional competition in Timonium. But Boris didn't like this tunnel, likely because he couldn't see the end of it. He abruptly stopped, sat on his fluffy tail and watched Katya (that's cot-ya, not cat-ya)
