And note the lone white kitty in the lower right corner - obviously the security detail keeping the conventioneers in line!

Well, being from Wisconsin, I suppose a group of badgers could be called "The Packer Backers".

But according to my exhaustive research, which amounted to looking on Wikipedia, group of badgers is called a cete, a colony, a set, or company.

And then the American Heritage Dictionary says "cete" is Middle English, possibly from Medieval Latin "cetus", assembly, from Latin "coetus", a coming together, variant of "coitus".

Somehow I knew sex would get into this discussion *snicker*

It really does all come down to sex, isn't it? Hee!

I'll have to remember what a company of badgers is called. I think we need to go for something more alliterative though, don't you? A brace of badgers? :-D

Packer Backers works too!!

I can't figure out that kitty - either he's blind and doesn't see the badgers (or smell them).

Or the badgers are such a common occurrence that kitty doesn't care (how would that many wild badgers be in one place - or why would someone have that many tame badgers in one place?).

Or Scotty has already got a transporter lock on the kitty and is about to beam it out of harm's way, so the kitty isn't worried.

I'm going with Scotty.

P.S. Happy Belated Birthday - I hope Scotty beamed you something more festive than a bunch o' badgers!
