Cat Cams & the Real Presence

Louis-&-Chanel-taking-a-nap

Long-time readers of Dominicana will already be aware that I love cats—indeed, I love every kind of cat. (I also like monkeys.) I was thus delighted recently when two of my confrères at the Dominican House of Studies introduced me to iPet Companion, a website dedicated to providing people without cats (or lacking glass boxes filled with therapy kittens) with the opportunity to play with cats. The concept of iPet Companion is simple: a user logs... [Read more...]
