Just see the cold stare of a predator playing the game of chicken.
House cats allways lose don,t they.
I tried with a poor Siberian Tiger at our zoo here.I feel profound sadness 
watching these caged creatures.
Any how i played chicken with her.And ofcourse she won.
Even looked slightly amused i thought at this unfortunate two legged failure 
of evolution that tried to challenge her.
Really dislike house cats.
Intelligence? well we don,t really know what that is do we .But i would not 
feel it in that cat .
Allmost feels like watching a robot of sorts.
Nice picture though.
sorry for the longish post and yuckspeak

what your field is?
