Of all the animal myths that float about, one of the most perplexing and enduring insists that cats are solitary creatures by nature. The truth is that cats have extended families and live according to a complicated code of social behaviour. Check out Katz Tales in tomorrow's print version of The Star Weekend section.

Moe and Ginger (pic right) were born somewhere around January 2008. These two cats are siblings. Both cats are very affectionate and friendly. They adore visitors and love to rub themselves on your feet. And they love to pose whenever a camera is around!
Moe and Ginger are vaccinated and neutered. They are looking for a loving home that will take them in together. For enquiries, call the SPCA Penang at 604-2816559 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
