: Well, guys, I guess I HAD forgotten about Blackie the horse. He really DID do a superb job. But...he's a HORSE. And the cougar is a CAT. And being a person who owns THREE FAT CATS and not ONE HORSE, I'm afraid my vote still goes to the Cougar for first place. (Kate, just look what a controversy you've started!)
: Motto: A cat's a cat, for all o' that!
What about the elusive (now you see him, now you don't) pack horse. Where was he cooling his heels during the elk hunt and where did he go after the visit to the Camerons' cabin? A performance that measures up to Houdini or David Copperfield.
