BTW.... Why "resident mammal"?

I get asked that a lot. It is a title I took in about 1985 while teaching at Iowa State University. It has been in my ISU signature for about as long and on my business cards.

The short answer is that it has to do with remembering our place within the interconnections and scheme of the world and is an excerpt from an essay I wrote about that time.

“Our species is the most arrogant on the planet....

Except, perhaps, for cats..... who simply don't care....”
