Babies & Dogs: Who Copies Whom?

Do babies learn from dogs, or dogs from babies? Here we see dogs imitating babies, and babies imitating dogs. Well, dogs are way better role models than some of the ones we pick up later in life: maybe babies are born with good sense. It would be so cool if they could talk to us! So many things I’d love to ask a baby… or a dog.


More Cats and Babies

Cats and human babies have something in common. Obviously, both have minds in which various things go on–things which fascinate us, but about which we can only speculate because neither cats nor babies can tell us what they’re thinking. And for my next question–does the one know what the other’s thinking?

The Unemployable Cat

This is the kind of thing that goes on under Baroness Vannett’s back porch all the time, in my Bell Mountain books. Wait’ll this cat tries to get a job at any farm. “You play with the rats? Get lost!”

But I’ve had rats as pets, and mine were wonderful–affectionate, fun-loving, and smart (even if they were a little hard on each other). People who muttered “Yeeeew!” when I brought one of my rats into the vet’s waiting room wound up petting and talking baby-talk to it.

And I did have a cat named Henry who peacefully sniffed at my pet mice and never tried to knock the lid off their aquarium. But I think that was because what he really wanted was my baby fence lizards. Oh, he wanted them so badly! But he didn’t get ’em.


Wanted: More Young Readers

Image result for images of happy teens

A fuss was generated here this week by someone who called us “all a lot of poor old fogeys” who gather on this blog. Just because I’m 126 years old, she thought I had “no feel for modern life.”

As I comb the trilobites out of my four-foot-long white beard, I’d like to mend this situation, if I can. And I think the way to do that is to invite more young people to visit this site and join us living fossils in our conversations. I think it would be fun! I’d like to hear from you. I mean, just because you’re teenagers, or somewhere under 30, doesn’t mean you have nothing worthwhile to say. I wish my Grandpa were still around for me to talk to. He used to play dominoes with Hammurabi. But as you yourself get older, you tend to run out of much older people to talk to.

Anyhow, the door is open, the welcome mat is out, and you just might like it here. Come on in and set a spell.


Everyone’s a Critic!

So you’re trying to get your career in the opera under way, practicing in the most private place you’ve got–and along comes this cat who just has to criticize. But then cats have their own ideas about what constitutes music.


Fierce Terrifying Kittens

Here’s another one of those stupid cat videos that I post because we’re all just a lot of old fogeys witch hasnt got no feeel “for” the modren world, as Joe College would say.

These kittens remind me of our Buster and Missy, brother and sister. Buster usually bossed Missy around. But when her ears went flat and her head and tail went almost to the floor, and she headed straight for him in a kind of deadly silence, he knew she was ready to take the dispute to a level way higher than he was prepared to go. So he would back down–if she let him.


The Lonely Cat

Will somebody please play with this poor cat, before he has a conniption? Who knew a cat could get this upset if you leave him alone in the house? Our cat Peep doesn’t like to be the only one in a room, and will summon us to join her. You know–like, “Hey, humans, get up out of bed and come back down here to the living room!” She’ll even settle for her sister’s company, if that’s all she can get.

Meanwhile, I’d be obliged if some of you would share this post or another on Facebook, so I can see if anything happens. Right, it still isn’t working. *sigh*


Bonus Video: Bedtime for Kitty

Our cat Peep does something very similar to this. There’s a quilted comforter on our bed, and she has learned how to wrap herself up in it on cold mornings. She doesn’t have a stuffed dolly to cuddle up to, though.

All the cat in this video needs is an alarm clock.


Hamsters a la Carte

Some people think hamsters don’t do anything but sleep, fight with each other, and run on wheels. This video will prove them wrong.

Hamsters do a lot of different things. One of them, I hope, is to attract visitors to this blog today. We shall see.
