My wife has a fondness for baby sloths. A lot of people do. They make cute baby sounds. There’s also a kangaroo in this video. Don’t ask me how that happened.
Back in the day, giant ground sloths got as big as elephants. I wonder what their babies were like.
More cats frolicking in snow. We have snow in our forecast for the weekend. I’ll believe it when I see it.
I’m especially intrigued by the cats who totally submerge themselves in snow. If I did that it would get under my clothes. That’s something cats don’t worry about.
When they’re not helping us get around the social media censors, puppies bring a lot of joy into our lives.
By the way, do any of you fall asleep in the bathtub? When it has water in it, I mean. It’s the sort of thing a puppy would do.
Here’s a lizard who knows exactly what he wants–blueberries! And if the floor’s too slippery for graceful locomotion, that’s a small price to pay.
People have been having a lot of fun with these Australian bearded lizards since they became popular. The lizards, I mean; not the people. I don’t much care for the idea of people as pets.
We have one dog who just can’t wait to get his mail–well, somebody’s mail–another who won’t get down off his high horse, and a fish who fetches tennis balls. What we don’t have is any nooze. I don’t know about you, but that’s the way I like it.
Ah! Watching this made me want to frolic in the snow, provided we ever get any around here. Make some snowballs, go into my 100% Accurate Imitation Luis Tiant Wind-up, and see if I can strike the black walnut tree that throws nuts at me in the fall.
Cats and snow and joie de vivre…
The only excuse I have for posting this again is that it cracks me up every time. The only cat I ever had who took any notice of television was Buster, who watched Nature because he wanted to try to catch the funny little elephants inside the funny box. He didn’t know what he was missing.
There are dogs and cats who pay no attention at all to television; but the dogs in this video do. See the brave bulldog try to save the kid in the movie from being grabbed by the monster. See not-so-brave dogs try to save themselves from being grabbed by the monster.
You don’t have to send an engraved invitation. This cat has learned the classic English phrase, “Ya hungry?” And the answer is always “Yes!” A very polite cat, she never fails to answer.
I don’t know when she’ll be ready for “Call me Ishmael,” but as long as the food holds out, it shouldn’t be a problem.
This is a wild gecko in Australia that came into someone’s house, as geckos often do, and most emphatically didn’t want to leave. Considering the very small size of this lizard, he puts up quite a tussle. Note the bobbed tail: it probably broke off, some time ago, and didn’t grow back all the way.
BTW, a lot of people like having geckos in their homes. They eat lots and lots of bugs.
In case you thought lizards have no voice, you were wrong. They just don’t feel the need to say much.
