Better than Cat Stevens

A news item in The Guardian today reminded me how much I miss Dina, my cat. DinaThe story concerns Malta too because it deals with pet passports enabling EU citizens to take their pets with them when they travel to other EU countries. I find the passport idea a little excessive, especially after a regular passport didn't even get Cat Stevens into the USA last week. What a farce that was!

I like the idea that there's a way to travel with pets without having to abandon them in quarantine for six months. The microchip system works and makes sense. I just hope no one gets the idea that microchipping is also a good idea for humans as part of some weird security measure at airports. I wonder what Dina thinks of her microchip...if anything at all.

Also in today's Guardian is a report about Prime Minister Tony Blair's heart condition. What a coincidence that he and I have the same heart condition. It's also interesting that they don't call it WPW syndrome here. Perhaps that's because his Supraventricular Tachycardia is a slightly version different of the condition from my Atrioventricular Reentrant Tachycardia. The symptoms are very similar and the treatment appears to be the same.

I'm glad my life is not as stressful as his. Do you think his pets need a passport? Does he even have a pet? If not, now would be a good time to get one. I always find time spent with Dina as some of the best therapy available anywhere.
