Enough Sturm und Drang already! Here are some dogs and cats with their heads on straight–also, I strongly suspect, a tiny peek into what God intends for us, once He restores and regenerates His creation.
Excuse me, I want to go grab me a cat…
P.S.–Videos of animals sleeping strongly resemble still photos of animals sleeping.
And here I am, remembering to post the video after I select it and load it. But I’d best not brag, just in case I suddenly discover I’ve forgotten something else.
Isn’t it amazing, how gentle most of these dogs are with cats who are just a fraction of their size? You will not I said “most,” not “all.” There really are moments in these relationships when the cat has a duty to assert his dominance.
Hey, this is just our daily sanity break–reaching out for harmless fun after plodding through the news.
Was it Apollonius of Tyana who said it’s tough being the only dog in a bedful of cats?
They look like they’re trying to murder each other, but nobody ever gets hurt: how do they do that? I mean, really, puppies and kittens do love a rasslin’ match.
My favorite here is the adult cat getting swarmed over by a whole litter of puppies. She doesn’t seem to mind! And neither would I.
This is astounding: the big scary pit bull cuddling the guinea pig and exchanging sniffs and kisses with the tiny baby rabbit, while the cat presides like a doting grandparent. How are animals able to learn to do this? And why can’t we?
I am pretty sure that Heaven looks like this.
So many cats and dogs are so good with babies, you’d think anyone who had a baby would rush right out and get a pet. I wish my parents had.
Although the one pug dog, regardless of the delight expressed by the baby, does make me wonder what he intends to do with the child. I hope he doesn’t have a den somewhere…
In fact, your pets’ll steal just about anything–especially if they think they can eat it. Here it’s mostly dogs and cats, but also a monitor lizard with a yen for socks–I don’t get that at all–and a greedy frog who wants the greens that the lizard’s eating: and that’s a new one on me, ’cause there’s no such thing as a herbivorous frog.
We go through this every mealtime: two cats, two food dishes containing exactly the same thing in exactly the same amount–and do you think each cat is content to eat from her own dish? Away wi’ ye!
Anyway, there is something in us that causes us to experience a weird kind of enjoyment as we watch cats persecute dogs and humans with impunity.
Enough with the crummy news already–let’s relax with our pets.
That business with the hedgehog reminds me of when I discovered, as a kid, that if I rubbed my pet lizards’ bellies, with would put them into something like a hypnotic trance. I’ll bet the same thing happened with that hedgehog.
When animals indulge in kooky behavior, it’s a sign of intelligence. When people do it, it’s just a sign of kookiness. Go figure.
