I can say that I finally did it, yesterday!
Again with Windows 2000, Windows 98 and Linux, all already installed. I have yet a lot of programs to install but I'll do it as I go allong needing them....

Damn it! It was a lot to learn in a short time but I just hope it will payoff some time....
Anyway, I'll have to makeup now for some delays and run to catch up with the schedule I had before....

Now I have one more cat here with us....
Is a little female cat, european with short hair, all black and has been named Blackie Baghera II (as we had already one, like her all black, named Blackie Baghera....).

She and Vickie are getting allong well and I think they will be always together. In the first and second days she was distanr, shy but I think she is more as ease now...

One thing that left me sad was the story that <A HREF="http://www.meltv.com/61800.htm>Melanie</A> wrote today about the cat she brought from the vet... I don't think she is or will give a bad mom... By the contrary! A grown up dog and a grown up cat hardly will ever get along. There are to many differencies in the gestual part of their languages (some even contradictory) to make it possible (unless in trully exceptional cases...). If a cat or a dog aren't used to the other on their socialization age (from 4 to 12 weeks), it will be very hard to make them go along... But it is sad, trully, anyway as the cat needs a home and some one that really cares for him and loves him. And I'm sad I'm so far away I can't help or do anything! But, on the other way, that's good as I'm crazy enough for cats to give it a try.... See you all later!

Sorry to all...
Unfortunelly, this part of my last post didn't get through, probabilly due to a mistake of mine.
I'll try to reproduce it by memory and post it here, now.


One thing that left me sad was the story that Melanie told us about the cat she brought home from the vet.
I'm sure that the cat needs a home and love and affection of someone that trully loves him.

Personally I think that the whole event doen't prove a damn thing that she isn't a good mom... By the contrary!
If she wasn't a good mom (and I'm sure Tina can prove it better than anybody!) she would't be sensible to the fact that Tina misses a company that once she had and the fact that she thought that she could try to make them go along.
But is a hard fact that a grown up cat that grew up without the close contact with a dog and vice-versa are very dificult to get used to each other...
To start with there are a number of elements on their gestual part of their language that are enough diferent and even sometimes contradictory to make misunderstandigs more than probable if they didn't grew acostumed to each other when they were 4 to 12 weeks.

But does that mean tha Melanie can consider herself a bad mom because she was not succeded in her atempt?
I don't think so.
And I don't think I'm wrong... Although my main experience is with cats and have a very little experience with dogs, I think that I've read enough about it that together with my own personal experience, make me certain of it, until I'm proved to be wrong....
