Cats and our lack of privacy.

I Know Where Your Cat Lives is an app that has been developed by a Florida State professor who has gathered pictures from the internet of people's cats and by using the geo tag that is often times present  on digital photos, he is then able to make a global map of cats and their homes. This is interesting experiment on just how little privacy we actually have and how something as simple as posting a picture of our cats could allow someone to violate privacy.

I have been wanting to start a blog for awhile. My struggle has been what to write about. What is it that I am most interested in because lets, face it....I have a lot of interests. And then it came to me, in much the same way my new job came to me; cats!!! I have recently started a new job as a veterinary technician at the Cat Hospital of Austin which is my dream job! There is constantly new advancements in animal medicine and I think this would be a great way to share my love of cats, science, writing, and sharing. This blog will not be exclusively about animal medicine. I hope to share all kinds of awesomeness. Feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions about future posts.
