Yawning Cats

Found out something interesting last night. You know the way yawning is contagious? Of course you do. Well, you can pass a yawn on to a cat too. We ganged up and made Sweeney yawn. Very cute.

That set me off wondering what yawning actually is, since I realised that I didn’t really know. Turns out no-one really does, though there’s a couple of theories.


I’ve got to give a mention at some point to Megatokyo, as it’s become one of my favourite sites.

It’s American, but inspired by Japanese manga/anime stuff, and it forms a story that follows on from week to week. There’s usually new strips up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you’re into manga, gaming, or even if you’re not (like me, really), you may well enjoy it. You’ll need to start at the beginning to really follow the story line, but it’s worth it.

If you buy the books, remember to pop back here and use our Amazon links 😉
