       Has anyone brought up scratching posts or how appropriate using
claws in public is?  They're bound to come in handy opening packages.

        They're also handy for stabbing someone, but I think social rules
would make that action uncommon (except during bar brawls and such).  I
doubt kats would keep a scratching post around like a piece of furniture,
but they would have tools to sharpen their claws.  Also, scratching is a
cat's way of marking territory.  I think kats are far too civilized to do
that.  As for mutual grooming, I think kats are too civilized and have on
the most part outgrown that practice. =^^=
