When romanticising any race of people nation or anything with fours legs one must be open minded. It must include any living animal be it a dog, human or cat, which can make decisions by reasoning. The Scots are in the news more than ever recently not because of their contribution to the musical world with the invention of Bagpipes but their desire to treat all matters fairly even if it has a odour of scotch.

"The small town of St. Andrews, tucked along the cloudy eastern coast of Scotland, is in mourning following the passing of one of its most beloved figures — a 15-year-old cat, named Hamish.

Having abandoned the comforts of domestic life when he was just one year old, choosing a life of adventure and freedom, the ginger cat might technically be considered a stray. But among St. Andrews’s nearly 17,000 residents, the freewheeling feline had come to be thought of as the town’s collective pet, happily accepting pats from folks as he lounged about the town.

His original owner, Marianne Baird, still saw to it that the cat had regular visits to the vet. She had come to accept Hamish was not a typical housecat. Indeed, he was so much more than that" wrote Stephen Messenger.

The town recently erected a statue of the feline in the town square with donations from the public. The Scots know how to add dignity to having lived....not withstanding the invention of Scotch and the Bagpipes and wearing kilts which are adored most everywhere in the civilized world.

How such a small country can make a lasting impression is a tribute to how patriotic and well adjusted is their social spirit.
