Cat and Dog, Partners in Crime

I once lived in a house where this happened fairly often. We had a refrigerator with one of those push-down door handles. The cat would jump up and hang on the handle, pulling it down and causing the door to swing open. Then he and the dog would climb in and eat my housemates’ suppers.

Here they’re only stealing cookies, and probably confused by the patzer standing there with a camera, filming them. It would confuse me if I were stealing cookies.

    Animals are not stupid, that’s for certain.

      Right you are, Unknowable. I’ve found that many times people in their arrogance can’t imagine animals actually having thought processes. And more than once I’ve thought they make much better companions than some people I know. 🙂

      The marble tabby in this video is a beautiful cat!

    I watched BBC’s “Blue Planet” over the weekend. One segment was about a good sized fish who obtained a clam, then proceeded to a circular rock formation where it threw the clam against the rock over and over until the shell finally broke open and it won its reward.

      I once saw a video about a species of fish that makes an elaborate display of rocks and sand to attract a mate. These creatures, these simplest of creatures, are capable of art. This display was nothing to sneeze at, I couldn’t even begin to duplicate it. How can anyone believe this all evolved?

        Today I subbed for a Jr. High Science teacher who had the kids watch a Nat’l Geographic video: “The Story of the Earth.” It had great special effects and even had a counter displaying how many million of years passed before certain things happened. I was unbelievable, I mean, literally unbelievable. The things scientists have made up to explain away an Infinite, Personal Creator is manic. The talk about how another planet plowed into the Earth while it was forming, and how at one time the Earth was like a snowball. A big section was on how there wasn’t any oxygen in the atmosphere until bacteria on the ocean floor began producing it. I felt so sorry for the way these young students are being brainwashed.
