Short biography
The TomcatMurr grew up somewhere in England and spent most of his pleasant kittenhood deeply immersed in human written words. Later, after pursuing a small prey onto a shipping tanker off some still uncertain port, he lost himself in a Dickens book and so didn't notice until he was rounding Spain that the tanker had left port and was on its way to Asia. One life short later, Murr stumbled off in Taiwan, which became his home and home base for his brilliant and sometimes caustic literary commentary.

Mac Daddy was apparently born in Belgium and had a mostly normal, mostly human childhood in which many books were devoured along with some other things that resembled food. In his later adult life he developed a habit of changing looks, at least publicly. While his official professional was never listed, in his spare time he became voracious reader and an erudite, but kindly literary critic.

At some point in time Murr and Mac were virtually transported in opposite directions until they collided in quiet Vancouver. The collision was quite intense and Murr sacrificed one life for himself and gave up yet another life to revive Mac. The two emerged in a new tangled single meta-form that has created its own force in one corner of the web. The future consequences of this are still uncertain, but there is subtle sense of a more intelligent, and more literary trend in most measures of world trends... or at least it is blamed for the slight but significant slow down in the world's descending stupidity.
