While Punky has passed, her offspring and her show, It Matters Radio, continue. Check out my interviews while Walking on the Weene Side and all the great music at www.itmattersradio.com

9 Amazing Things That Happen When Dog Owners Date Cat Owners | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
While studies claim that cat owners are smarter, studies also claim that dog owners are more social, active and caring. What happens when they start dating?
Kenneth Weene's insight:
This is one of the cute, make the day brighter, pieces that we all enjoy reading. All, maybe not those who hate animals. Now, I'm a dog person. So is my wife. Nevertheless, cats seem to love me. Why not, I provide a soft, warm lap and a never fight with them over boxes or tuna. Have you ever dated across species preferences? What about icthyophiles (fish lovers)? Hmm a cat lover and a fish person. Now, that could be cold.

From Dumpster to Diva - the story of Punky the Radio Cat.

From Dumpster to Diva - the story of Punky the Radio Cat. | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

You never know what life will bring, especially if you are of the feline persuasion.

My first memory was of warmth as I cuddled up to birthmother and suckled a protruding teat. All was blackness, though I was much too young to be aware of the difference of light and dark. It was a coziness and comfort with need of nourishment, and it was wonderful.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Punky shares some of her personal story, and I bet you'll give it four paws up.

A million miles away behind her own front door: A Saudi woman's secret apartment

A million miles away behind her own front door: A Saudi woman's secret apartment | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Thanks to new technology and work, she found a place of her own - and wants more
Kenneth Weene's insight:
No matter how thick you lay the concrete, nature has a way of pushing weeds up. So too, no matter how repressive the regime or family, nature will find a way to allow the human spirit to search for freedom. She may only be a strange cat lady to some, but this Saudi woman represents the best of feminism to me. Some day, perhaps her father with all his holier than thou parenting will realize that she, not he, is the better person in spirit and soul. I know that her story inspires me. I wonder if there would be a way to help her buy that average without causing issues in her parental home. How do you react?
