A friend texted me about the news of a wild lioness nursing a leopard cub.

My reply:
I've read that fanfic
Course it being fic the lioness falls for the leopard dad


Been years and years since I last read that one, but I remember the title: The Spotted Lion. It's from 1997, no less.

katherine: A line of books on a shelf, in greens and browns (books)
Unpleasantly surprised to see a shiny new paperback with a familiar author name at the library recently. A few of Cassie Edward's novels have been reprinted in 2015 and 2016. (There's a Kensington Books author page.)

Not titles I'm seeing in the series posts at that Cassie Edwards Investigatory Extravaganza back from 2008, but. (Ah, there it is on the last page of the document from 2008, A centralized document for the Cassie Edwards situation. The page numbers don't match and I'm not quite curious enough to read more of Wild Ecstasy to track down the particular passages.)

I slogged through a couple chapters of Wild Ecstacy before giving up. In skimming the last few pages I did find a memorable line of dialogue.

"Ma'am he was forty-six years of age," Lieutenant Osborne said, his voice drawn. "His death was attributed to chronic diarrhea, and/or its remedy, opium."

Dog covers

There exists a whole series of Harlequins (Love Inspired Suspense, too bad for my reading preferences) with nothing but dogs on the covers: Rookie K-9 Unit.

My favourite is either Honor and Defend (there's puppies!) or Rookie K-9 Unit Christmas.
katherine: The Alot (a shaggy brown beast) wearing a santa hat. Words: I LIKE YULETIDE ALOT (yuletide)
I liked the commercial with sleep and wake animals that got nominated as a Yuletide fandom this year. (The internet supplies a video of a dog watching the commercial.)

My Yuletide assignment:
Just Can't Fall Asleep (1434 words)
Fandom: Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Josephine didn't really think the butter would do much to distract Sleep from exploring and hiding, but it was worth a try. And it felt, a little, like involving Sleep in the move.

I got to thinking about the sleep and wake animals in other settings, and thus:
Motives (932 words)
Fandom: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Data & Ishara Yar
Characters: Data, Ishara Yar, Spot
Additional Tags: Wake and sleep animals, Set during "Legacy"
In a universe where the majority of humans have wake and sleep animals, Data meets Ishara Yar.

That is a thing I did not know existed: a cat flap that reads microchips.

Entirely irrelevant as we live in an apartment. But cool.

From an Atlantic article I read of babies in incubators at Coney Island and fairs.

There's Coney Island Sideshows at Neonatology on the Web (which has the pleasing spare look of the twenty-year old website it apparently is).

That has me imagining Steve and Bucky seeing tiny babies at the 1943 World Expo.

A future thing: sort through old and very old art.

A tonight thing: relaxing evening activity of CueCating (that's a verb now, I say) long-stored books into LibraryThing.

I mis-typed CueCat when searching for somewhere to link, and landed on CURCAT, "a unique psychometrically evaluated tool in VET for measuring practitioners' industry currency."
