Kitty and Ratty

You’d think it’d be hard to find scenes like this, outside of The Wind in the Willows. But here are a rat and a cat playing together–with the rat even getting underfoot on the cat, just like cats enjoy doing to us humans.

By the way, rats make smart and affectionate pets. We had two of them and they were just as good as gold–except with each other, of course.

  1. OK, it’s official; something extraordinary is going on here. Cats and birds playing together, cats and rodents, horses nuzzling cats and cats “bathing” horse’s faces; this ain’t business as usual. 🙂

    I must disclaim, I don’t claim to be a prophet, but this is just not making sense anymore. Perhaps more to the point, this seems far too reminiscent of biblical prophecy. The Bible tells us to remain in expectation of Christ’s return and tells us that we can expect a much better world in that era. Just as the human race will benefit from this arrangement, but the animal realm will certainly benefit.

    Romans 8:19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

    1. That rat knows that the cat won’t hurt him: that’s the cool part. He knows it from experience; but how did this friendship get started?
      There’s much, much more going on with animals than most people thing. It could be the Lord is trying to tell us something.

  2. Love the animal videos. Enjoy reading your various posts. I have a question: how is your last name pronounced? No special reason — just plain ol’ curiosity.

    1. The “u-i” in Duigon is pronounced as the u-i in “ruin,” and the “o” is hardly pronounced at all.

      You would not believe some of the bizarre pronunciations that people have come up with, over the years. Doo-jee-on. Dugong. Dye-gon (sounds like a Japanese monster movie).

      I’d change it to Smith or something, but my books are already published under my original name and I have a hard enough time selling any without confusing the readers.
