Curious Kitties

If you appreciate cats, morphing or weird art pop into Levi's arty flagship store Cinch and check out Cat Pictures in Pink by Anthony Gross. The exhibition applies human facial expressions to computer generated images of cats with somewhat scary results. If you are worried about genetic engineering and human/animal experiments Gross' work could give you nightmares as he manages to make these freaky cats look like cutesy advertising images. If you can't get to the exhibition, visit Britart.com, where the images are on sale priced from 100.

Cinch, 5 Newburgh Street, London W1, Unitred Kingdom. Enquiries 020-7287-4941 (UK).

Warning For Flat/High Rise Dwellers


The RSPCA are warning Londoners not to leave pets on balconies because they may fall off or get stuck in railings.

A campaign called Life on the Edge has been launched to highlight the problem.

The charity says dozens of animals are harmed in balcony-related injuries each year.

They say not only are animals at physical risk, but they are also forced to live in cramped conditions and get lonely.

Cases include sixteen rabbits which were left on a Greenwich balcony while their owner went on holiday for three weeks and a cat that died after falling in Wimbledon.

The RSPCA London regional superintendent Jeremy Goodger said: "Each year we deal with dozens of incidents involving pets which have fallen from balconies or have got their heads stuck in or under balcony railings. Some tethered dogs have been strangled when they have got through the railings of the balcony and cats have leapt from railings incurring horrendous injuries."
