The review of the book about Alex was interesting. I'd already read it of course. I'm a cat person myself and one of the most interesting things I've seen was a cat rescue where my daughter volunteered. I wish she'd written a book on it. Cats are by nature solitary animals but at this shelter they were allowed to run free on each floor of the house in close proximity with each other. Naturaly they couldn't help but develop social bonds. It was fascinating to me. There was a dominate cat on each floor who served as a protector to the weaker cats-not as a tormentor of the weak. I found that to be incredibly interesting. She never followed through on it though, and never took any notes.

Welcome to Lunch, Rebecca!  It is so exciting to have a pet expert on the site! :)  To give you more a feel of Lunch, I thought you might enjoy these reviews of parakeets, betta fishes, Boston terriers and White's tree frogs.  And since you have an interest in discovering restaurants, you should check out Lunch's archive of San Francisco Bay Area Restuarants.  Have fun exploring the site, Rebecca, and feel free to let me know if you have any questions! :)
