I’ve never owned dogs and cats at the same time. Some of these videos make me wish I had.
Note that this are mostly adult cats playing with puppies. How do they know to be so gentle? I mean, the puppy wouldn’t know–right? So it’s up to the grownup cat to set the tone. And they know just how to do it. Very smart!
It looks like dogs never suffer from ennui. That’s a crossword puzzle word for boredom. They don’t do crosswords, but everything else is on the table. The dogs in this video are all having a blast.
And some dogs have discovered that they, like cats, can invent all sorts of ways to keep you from reading!
That last video was awfully short, so I’m giving you another one.
When you can’t find your pet where he’s supposed to be, it’s probably because he has figured out how to escape. Like the critters in this video.
Believe it or not, the best animal escape artists I’ve ever seen are–of all things–box turtles. You’d be amazed by their artfulness. Keeping Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson penned up in the old stalag was a piece of cake, compared to keeping box turtles.
Actually you need at least ten of something before you can decimate it, and we haven’t got but one pit bull; but I have always wanted to use that word in a headline, and now seemed as good a time as any.
Our cats pay no attention whatsoever to our printer. Maybe because it’s not a fancy-schmancy printer like the ones in this video. Cats seem to be fascinated by those.
What would you give to know precisely what was going through a cat’s mind as he studies the printer and ponders his next move?
One of these clips reminded me of our cat, Buster, who used to watch “Nature” on TV and always tried to grab the little elephants he saw plodding across the screen. It was years before he finally gave up on it.
Anyway, this is a very cozy video, guaranteed to lower your blood pressure.
There’s something about that cockatoo trying to catch the roach, and then panicking because it’s harder than expected, that fascinates me. Ditto the chicken opening the door to let herself in. And the dog and the deer enjoying a back-and-forth foot race.
Hey, the verdict’s in–animals are fun!
Who knows why some dogs have this overpowering urge to sit on cats? I mean, they might get scratched or bitten in a tender spot… It cannot be said that cats appreciate this gesture.
For the sake of being fair and balanced, this video also presents a few cats who like to sit on dogs.
We are shown no animals that like to sit on porcupines.
Most furniture is designed for humans, but cats still like it–although furniture designed for cats is getting more elaborate. But I know if I were to buy it, the thing my cats would like best would surely be the cardboard box it came in.
Our friend “optimal play” posted this on my chess page today, and I thought it might give you a chuckle. Some of these clips have appeared in other compilations, so you might have seen them before–but they’re still funny.
What do these dogs know about these cats that we don’t know? Or is it something that they only think they know?
P.S.–Must be nice weather everywhere, today: readership is way below average. Oh, well….
