Did you know that a quick way to tell whether a cat is obese is by touching its side? If you can feel its ribs, then it's not obese, maybe just plump.

yes, and this was why now many EU countries plus a few like kosovo, Montenegro, San Marino, Andorra, Monaco and Vatican City use the Euro. All started as an idea of a common currency as well as linked currency.
