Remember "The owl and the pussycat"?

It's a famous nonsense poem by Edward Lear, taught in old-style school English class and much enjoyed by youngsters.  If you don't know it, you'll find it here.

What's not nonsense is the friendship that's sprung up between a five-year-old owl and a very young kitten in Japan.

All together, now . . . Awwww!

The poem is from an age when, "What a beautiful pussy..." meant just that, no more no less.
