‘Telephone Call for Mr. Cat…’

Can you believe it? They’ve got a cat here who answers the phone… although he can’t take a message.

Our cat Henry, if you were… shall we say “indisposed”?…when the phone rang, and you couldn’t answer it, would get very upset if you didn’t. And he’d let you know it, too.

Eccentric Pets & Other Critters

Actually, the most eccentric characters in this video are the humans who let a bear into their house. It seems very unwise.

But there’s also the dog who feeds bunnies (and a piglet, and a duck) instead of eating them, and a grey goose who feeds his friends–a whole bunch of fish. These are glimpses into the renewal of Creation: when God says, “Behold, I make all things new.”

The Great Stone Cat

If ignoring people ever got recognized as a martial art, this cat would have a black belt.

Poor puppy! He wants to play and can’t get the slightest response from the cat. It might as well be a statue of a cat. In fact, we happen to have a stone cat in our living room, and I think our real cats have been taking lessons from it.

Odd Little Pets: Grey Tree Frogs

Permit me to indulge myself. I had some of these grey tree frogs once, and I just loved ’em! They tame fast, and mine used to perch on my finger like parakeets and eat out of my other hand.

Yes, I know the ones you see in the video are green. They can turn green or grey at will. They’re very good at changing color.

They have a sweet song, too. Well, I thought it was sweet. My housemates threatened to poison me if I didn’t release the frogs back into the wild. I had to comply.

I hope they liked me as much as I liked them. The frogs, not the housemates.

Sanity Break: Pets Taking Baths

Dogs, cats, monkeys, even a hedgehog–they’re all enjoying bath time. Who would’ve thought it?

The only pet I ever had that seemed to like getting a bath was my iguana. He got lost in our family’s drop-down ceiling once, and when he finally found his way back out, he was black instead of green. As I was away on an out-of-state job interview, my sister bathed him–complete with brush, in places. And he was totally a good boy about it.

Priceless! Pets vs. Toys

If some of these don’t make you laugh, better see if you can still fog a mirror!

I especially like the young iguana who really, truly, deeply doesn’t take to the stuffed toy iguana. The cat here is an innocent bystander.
