meet beautiful singles in your area
when you see them:
stand still
reach out your arm
wait for the single to approach
accept headbuffs if given
accept that they might walk away, too

after a moment of purring, continue with your day, having been graced by the presence of cat

Inside you are two wolves. If one is dominant and one is recessive then you have a heterozygous allele Ww, and if you breed with another Ww, you both appear to have the dominant wolf but there is a 25% chance of producing a homozygous offspring showing the recessive wolf.

If your offspring shows the dominant wolf trait and they pair with another dominant-presenting allele, calculate the chances that each of your grandchildren will have recessive wolves.
