Play Free Christmas Games - GoGo Christmas Games Cat Flats: Designing human apartments for feline friends His owner recently overhauled their 484 square foot (45 sqm) home in the Taiwanese capital to make Ge Ge and his sibling, Mei Mei -- or Little Sister -- feel more comfortable. Far from unusual, this is just one of many so-called "cat flats" springing up across Asia. In such properties, cat flaps are passé. "The cat business is booming. Since 2011 pet cat popularity has increased by 91% in Taiwan, with owners shelling out $598.4 million on pet-related products and services a year, according to the Council of Agriculture. "People who love their cats really do go a bit crazy for them," admits Tsai.

The Surprising Realities Behind What Motivates Us in Illustrated Form @Blueluck: Very true - I've seen other countries where people leave their family in another country to go find work, and then to manual labor for extremely cheap just to be able to send it all home to their family. I guess that could be interpreted as their purpose, but the work is not purposeful in and of itself. I guess "pay enough to take money off the table" covers that, so we're only talking about how to motivate people after they're at the comfortable level most Americans that read this blog are at. Interesting results in India, though. I believe there is a threshold that once you're paid a certain amount, you feel on top of things like you deserve it, so you don't work hard to move up further. I think that's one reason government employees aren't known for super service. @Blueluck: Its completely subjective, is the answer.

Bunny Island, Fox Village, Cat Island: A Look Into Japan's Paradises for Animal Lovers For animal lovers, heaven might just be a place in Japan. The country is home to a fox village, bunny island and cat island where you can find yourself delightfully swarmed by hundreds of these free-roaming, furry animals. Here's a look into the paradises for animal lovers: Okunoshima: Bunny Island Hundreds of friendly feral bunnies hop "all over" this small island and approach tourists to their delight," said Elliss Krauss, a professor of Japanese politics and policy-making at University of California San Diego. "They are very friendly and hope to be fed," Krauss told ABC News today. This small island was kept secret and off the maps during World War II when Japan produced poison gas on Okunoshima for chemical warfare against China.
