    Hello, everybody! (wave)
    I did not know where to post that so I opened a new thread. Actually, we have always had a thread for curiosities on the Bulgarian forum and have always enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy such a thread, too.
    This article about the unique green Varna cat features quite a few pictures and a video, therefore I find it more convenient to post a link. If it does not open for certain locations, please let me know and I will post a summary and just a couple of pictures.

    Looking forward to your contributions,

    The green cat looks cute but I am little bit worried if the paint is poisonous as cats tend to lick their fur:oops:

    According to the people living in the neigbourhood, the cat turned green last winter as well. The garage is obviously his winter residence. And the owner is reported to be living abroad so the paint cannot be removed. Anyway, it seems to be harmless. Besides, Hulk (as they often call him) and his ginger companion get plenty of food and attention. There are even jokes going around about him planning to turn purple next year.
    Some people seem to think that it's not much of a job to corner and catch a cat. I was one of them until I was commissioned to translate some interviews with our zoo staff for a film. I knew about the notorious jackal, nicknamed Houdini, who kept everybody - keepers, doctors, managers - busy for months with her tricks. She was a very ingenious escape artist and almost impossible to catch once she sneaked out of her enclosure. Visitors to the zoo had great fun trying to track her and take pictures. The details about all the futile attempts to capture her - traps of all sorts, arrows and what not - really stunned me. It's unbelievable how cunning animals can be when it comes to their freedom.

    OMG! I had heard about the Japanese 'cat islands' but I had never imagined anything like that:

    o_O Enjoy! [​IMG]
    Or - don't! As the case may be. In fact, I read a lot of controversial commentaries under the English, Bulgarian and Russian versions of that article... Bulgarians are the kindest. Only one commentary like: Am I the only one disgusted? and an immediate curt answer: You are! Feel free to leave the thread! The English-speaking world seems mostly concerned about cat-population issues.
    I am looking forward to more commentaries. ;)

    What one can invent!
    DYED [EASTER] CHICKENS!
    o_O

    It seems that the second method, injecting the eggs with vegetable-based dye, has been used by farmers for practical purposes - to distinguish one hatch or breed of chickens from another while raising them...
    However, there is one drawback of dyeing chickens for Easter: the traditional red colour is not recommended, as the other chickens will tend to attack the red-coloured one and peck at it... Though I can see nothing like that in the clip below.
