"Cachinnate" derives from the Latin verb "cachinnare," meaning "to laugh loudly," and was probably coined in imitation of a loud laugh. "Cachinnare" is much like the Old English "ceahhetan," the Old High German "kachazzen," and the Greek "kachazein" —all words of imitative origin that essentially meant "to laugh loudly." "Cackle" has a different ancestor (Middle English "cakelen"), but is also believed to have been modeled after the sound of laughter. Simply put, this blog is full of laughs.

Kitty Hygiene

Please forward to cat lovers everywhere who, like myself, are very concerned about kitty hygiene.

1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.

2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water, and have both lids lifted.

3. Obtain the cat and soothe him while you carry him to the bathroom.

4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid. (You may need to stand on the lid so he can not escape.) CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching for anything they can find.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power wash and rinse" which I have found to be quite effective.

6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as much as you can and quickly lift both lids.

8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet and run outside, where he will dry himself.
