What is this?

Here is a video of Nona in our catarium (a very large outdoor enclosure.) She is excited I came to visit and photograph her in the catarium. You can see how she's rubbing and rolling around. You can see Nona has her winter coat and is slightly chubby. She weighs 8 pounds and is the smallest cat in our house.

It's my "gotta have fun while experimenting" website. And the truth is, I DO have a pure breed Nebelung cat.

I highly recommend that YOU create your fun video website because - it provides a safe place to experiment with web video. Websites are free. Video Hosting is free. Video software are free. So, there really is no excuse any more.

What I'm doing is three-fold. I'm experimenting with video host and I'm playing with Google's (keywords and phrases and such.) I'm also not stressing about my video quality because it's my "fun" website. I'm not even using my 3CC hi-end miniDV camera, I'm using my still camera to capture video instead! I'm being so point n'shoot and drop n'drop naughty!

Is it possible I could ever out rank the other Nebelung related websites on Google? I think I can. After all, I am providing a valuable, unique and fun service -- Nebelungs in action! Am I having fun being the "only" Nebelung cat video website online? YES!

What kind of special critters or hobbies do have at your house? How about making one of them your "fun" video website?
