Cats Who Love Babies

I don’t know what you’d call it, but I’d call it a good start in life–cuddling with a cat before you can toddle. And it’s astounding, how patient some of these cats are with human babies who appear to have mistaken them for some kind of furry squeaky-toy.

Yes, I’m convinced it’s a good idea to let your baby and your pet cuddle and play together. Unless your pet is a lobster. Then all bets are off.

Stoic Cat, Not-so-Stoic Guinea Pigs

Those little balls of fluff running all around the playroom are guinea pigs, and the cat is trying heroically to ignore them. They don’t want to be ignored. Maybe the cat is preparing for an audition as a Buckingham Palace guard. Maybe the guinea pigs are helping him rehearse.

If you can get a cat to stop ignoring you, that’s an achievement.

More Cats and Mirrors

Cats confronting mirrors–it gets me every time. These cats just don’t get it. Or do they? Sometimes it seems they’re making a game of it.

I held up a mirror, once upon a time, to my little dime-store “chameleon” (Carolina anole, to give the lizard its proper name), and he totally freaked out. No game there! I had to take the mirror away before he did himself a mischief.

Cats Doing Dog Things (Plus a Public Service Message)

My cat Missy loved to play fetch. That’s what she thought pipe cleaners were for. And if I was still in bed, she brought me one anyway.

Important Note: If your cat is panting like a dog, it’s time for a trip to the vet. In cats panting like that is a sign of several serious illnesses. Not an occasion to make a Youtube video. Heart diseases, respiratory illness–not something to take lightly.

Cats & Bunnies: Friends

While we’re waiting for the Lord to restore Creation so that the lion and the lamb can lie down together, we can get a foretaste of it just by watching cats and rabbits, predators and prey, playing together, cuddling, grooming each other, and having an all-around good time. You can see the bunnies are positively terrified of the bloodthirsty hunters… or not.

Cats in Pursuit of Their Tales

See, this is one of those things that make people think that maybe cats are not all there. Why do they chase their tails? But then how are we, tail-less bipeds that we are, to judge? When all we’ve got is that poor little coccyx that nobody ever sees unless something has gone terribly wrong. Then it’s ineluctable.

I’d better stop here before I turn into Casey Stengel.

Cats Stealing Dogs’ Beds

Isn’t it pitiful? Little cat steals dog’s big bed, and the poor dog doesn’t know what to do about it. That’s domestication for you. Are dogs really that un-assertive, or are they just being generous?

And cats are very, very good at judging what they can get away with.

Cats Who Make the Best of Things

Cats are very smart–smart enough so that they try to understand things like printers, washing machines, and metronomes that can’t possibly have any relevance to them. In this they resemble human beings.

That’s why, when you watch a cat trying to figure something out, you can almost hear the wheels turning in his head.

Cats Love Laundry Machines

I heard there was a cat aboard a submarine who learned how to fire the torpedoes–most embarrassing for the Navy.

Washers and dryers aren’t as good as a submarine, but cats do enjoy them. If only they’d actually do our laundry for us… I guess you haven’t lived until you’ve curled up on top of a washing machine going full-tilt.

Cat Shows Baby Who’s Boss

There are a lot of videos of cats head-butting people, but this is the only one in which the cat is bigger than the human. It looks like he’s trying to convey some important lesson to the baby. Please note the baby doesn’t cry: the cat isn’t hurting him.

It only hurts when they butt your hand while you’re trying to do a crossword puzzle.
