    I hesitate to correct you, Reen, but you should say you live in Durham County, not County Durham. I live in Caroline* County - that's the right way to say it. :rolleyes:

    *Caroline - probably named after one of Lord Baltimore's* daughters or some princess or other..

    *Lord Baltimore - the city is his fault entirely.

    It must just be one of the differences between UK and US, I've only ever heard or seen it as County Durham , all mail I receive
    has it that way round. I know there are some words we spell differently and I believe your house numbering system is
    different to ours too :)

    You know I was just teasing. I like that there are a few of these differences between the old world and the new. County Durham sounds classier than Durham County.:p

    Transgender Cat

    This is embarrassing. Over a year ago I started feeding two stray cats in my neighborhood who seemed to prefer hanging out in my yard. These cats were mostly feral as they kept alive before I started feeding them by catching and eating mice, birds and squirrels. It took months for them to allow me to pet them.

    One was normal female sized, the other larger. They were inseparable. The smaller of the two had pretty white socks and was skittish and continually looking around for danger. The larger was straight tabby color. His demeanor was much calmer. I didn't examine their genital areas. I assumed that the smaller was a girl and the larger was a male because of his size and temperament. I named them LadyBug and Grayman.

    Imagine my chagrin when Grayman was lying relaxed on my kitchen floor and I noticed that 'he' had no male genitalia. Instead 'he' had two little openings back there. Grayman was a girl cat ... an unusually large girl cat. She had gotten used to her name so now I call her Grayman Girl.

    @Dwight Ward , pick the cat up and shake it. If it rattles, it's a male. :p
