Would you believe it? They composed a musical piece just for this cat. But it is, after all, Nora the famous piano-playing cat. How famous? Well, my wife has a Nora coffee mug. There are no coffee mugs with me on them.
Cats can be quite musical. My cat Buster used to derive endless pleasure from twanging the rubber band that kept my package of Archway cookies closed. That sound coming from the kitchen really mystified us, until we caught him in the act.
All right, how do they do it? Cats and dogs–they’re wizards at the old shell game. If they were ever allowed to play it for money, you could take your pet to New York and make a fortune–until somebody came along and made you disappear.
But really–are our pets that much cleverer than us?
P.S.–We are having an inexplicable plague of flies this evening. And the cats just sit there and watch. This will definitely be considered the next time they ask for a raise.
What’s going on here? Everywhere the cat goes, the bird follows: can’t get away from it. What does the bird want? And why is the cat so eager to avoid it?
I once had a very large land crab to whom a small tortoise took a fancy. The tortoise chased the crab round and round a very large cage–in what must have been the world’s hottest slow-motion romance. Actually, it was quite obvious what the turtle had in mind. In fairness, the crab, in its big round shell, must have looked something like another turtle. But finally we had to separate them before the poor crab despaired of ever knowing peace again. It was a very good crab, and deserving of respect: never once pinched me.
Forsooth, this is just too much! Cats stealing snacks–well, you expect that. But DVDs? And laundry? What does the cat want with the laundry? And money! Say it ain’t so, Joe.
Those first two, by the way, look just like our two wonderful cats from years ago, Buster and Missie. Only there’s no way my little girl Missie would’ve just sat there and let her brother swipe her snacks.
And then there’s the gavone who stands there filming while the cat climbs around all the food in the refrigerator…
This husky, blamelessly trying to enjoy a nap on the couch, deserves applause for being sort of a poster-dog for I Corinthians 13. If love is truly longsuffering, then this is love. And the cat using the dog for a cushion looks startlingly like one of my cats.
There was a husky named Buttons in my neighborhood, back in the Bronze Age, who frequently slipped his chain and ran around biting people. The cat who tried to cozy up to Buttons would not be long for this world.
Boy, some cats can sleep through anything!
Sorry if I creep you out, but this video fascinates me. What do the ants propose to do with this cat? And what will they have to do to wake him up? I mean, if it were you instead of this cat (presuming you don’t mind grabbing 40 winks on the sidewalk), would this not freak you out?
Whether it’s playing ping-pong, playing catch, or even playing chicken, cats know how to get into the spirit of it.
And please, everybody, pray for my cat, Robbie: who seemed to be improving last night, but today hasn’t been able to eat. She was checked out by the vet a couple of weeks ago, blood work and all, and pronounced okay except for her hyperthyroid condition. We applied the medicine and she started showing improvement. Then the hairballs started a few days ago, and these past two days, she hasn’t eaten. Her vet appointment is next week.
Anyway, we’re kind of upset around here and we really need your prayers. This poor cat! First it was the asthma, for years, and now this. Please, Lord, grant that she be able to eat–and keep it down–tomorrow. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Well, here’s a cat who makes her objection to TV in the most certain terms–she bats the remote out of Mommy’s hand.
What do you suppose made her do that?
Yes, I know I usually leave the cat video to the end of the day; but this one was just too hard to resist.
Looks to me like these kittens are getting charged up pretty good…
Honestly, what goes on in cats’ minds? Doesn’t it look like they do these things on purpose? I mean, you’re just sitting there, trying to do your homework… and the next thing you know–well, watch the video. Talk about unexpected interruptions!
