See? Cats and dogs can play nicely together. I assume none of them is getting hurt in any of these tussles. Otherwise it would either escalate into real mayhem or one of the parties would get serious about running away.
I love watching animals play together. For some reason my lizards never did that. I wish my cats would play with each other, but their sibling rivalry won’t permit it. Ah, well, there’s always videos…
Dogs are like turtles: they can get to places that you’d never think they’d reach. But you’ll never see turtles jump like some of the dogs in this video. In fact, you’ll never see turtles jump at all.
One of these dogs could easily be mistaken for a kangaroo.
Fun False Fact: There is a dog in Sayreville, New Jersey, that can read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. But he never tells you what they say.
My cats are too mature anymore to run around all crazy-like. Roll a ball by either of them, and they’ll do no more than turn their heads to watch it. No more running around sideways with puffy tails, either. *Sigh*
So, if I want to see cats get all worked up, I turn to cat videos–like this one. Does this cat have a lot of go to him, or what? Vim and vigor to spare!
I don’t feel like covering any of the nooze that seeped out of Mordor this morning. I know they want me to cover it, because they want everyone to hear about it–in hopes that some will believe them. But I ain’t bitin’ on that hook.
Instead, I offer these few items of totally made-up nooze. As the person who made them up, I certify there isn’t a word of truth to them.
*No one can find any of the Democrat candidates for president. As of 6 a.m. this morning they were all reported as missing. No one seems to mind.
*A freak snowstorm this weekend buried a Climate Change march in Stockholm, Sweden.
*A new sex robot designed by Okashiio Baka Industries, in Japan, doubles as a toaster-oven when not being used for the more obvious purpose.
*Another Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to former President *Batteries Not Included “on general principles.” The entire Nobel committee was reportedly drunk at the time.
*The new Michael Moore movie opened to completely empty theaters all around the country, earning absolutely no money. Moore has offered a prize to anyone who can prove he or she saw it.
Gee, this is a lot easier than actual reporting. No wonder the nooze media like it so much.
The cat always wins these confrontations, but the balloon doesn’t make it easy for him. Note the interplay between curiosity and caution (curiosity always wins). And causing the balloon to burst doesn’t always scare the cat. Sometimes it positively mystifies him.
Imagine you’re a cat trying to make sense of a balloon. It can’t be easy for them.
Actually, there is no parade included in this video. It proved impossible to get the cats to remain in formation.
So all we have here is a little celebration of how fine a thing it is to have these animals in our lives–I can’t imagine what it’d be like without them.
Somewhere on Youtube there’s a video of someone’s pet clam. That’s another thing that’s kind of hard to imagine.
All right, enough nooze already. Let’s turn to something wholesome.
Cats and babies make some beautiful music together. I don’t know how that crew of puppies got in here, and some of these little ones aren’t truly babies anymore–but it’s still some nice video. See if it makes you purr.
Does this ever happen to you? You crawl under the couch or the bed, or burrow down between a couple of cushions–and you get stuck, you can’t get out again. Isn’t that embarrassing? Especially when it’s in front of company…
No? You haven’t had the experience? Well, a lot of dogs have; and you’ll see some of them in this video.
Always make sure you can get out before you go in! (Gee, that sounds like Sun Tzu…)
This is why you don’t want to give your cat one of those paper bags with handles. They always manage to get stuck in the handles and it freaks them out.
Astounding False Fact: A certain famous polar explorer was almost killed when he got stuck in a paper bag left lying on the igloo floor by a careless Inuit.
What is it about cats that human babies find so hilarious? Babies’ minds are sealed books to us. By the time they’re old enough to talk, they can’t remember what they might have had to talk about when they were infants. I would love to know what goes on inside the mind of a little baby. Or the mind of a cat, for that matter.
Can it be that cats and babies understand each other?
