So I’m all mellow and calm as I go to post this nice cat video–and then WordPress tells me I’m gonna get a “new editor” for a “new layout” and that’s the top of my head they’re scraping off the ceiling. No! No! No new stuff! I can barely manage the old stuff that I’m used to. Who asked for anything new around here? Not me! No, no, no, I will most emphatically not try “our new editor,” no way, why can’t you people just leave me alone, what have I ever done to you??? Excuse me while I scream.
As you can see from this video, kittens are very imitative. If you have one or more kittens in the house, it’s important for you to be a good role model. Usually the mother cat performs this function. Even so, be on your guard lest a kitten pick up any not-so-nice human habits. Like not refilling the ice tray.
I’m trying to figure out what’s going on in this video. The kitten isn’t sure he wants to play with the rat, and it doesn’t look to me like the rat is sure about anything. Meanwhile, this freakin’ computer is giving me fits. But that’s another matter altogether.
Our rats loved to play with us, but not with each other. Turn out the light, and the next thing you know, it’s wrestlemania in the rats’ tank. Bump-bump-bump-Thud-SQUEEEEEEEAK!!! Then you turn the light back on and they’re just sitting there like nothing happened.
You won’t believe this video. And I’d better watch out, or I won’t be able to eat chicken anymore.
This hen has adopted a kitten. She broods it. And the kitten, if removed, crawls back under the chicken. Did you know God put that that much love in His creation, even in its fallen state? Whatever will it be like, once He regenerates it?
The only problem here is that the chicken can’t nurse the kitten. The participating human will have to do that. But someday that’ll make for quite a memory.
The kitten really wants the guinea pig to play with him, and he finally gets his wish. If only the hammy humans would stay out of the way, we might learn something.
I’ve never had a guinea pig, but the ones in a certain pet store were always up for petting and tickling. I’ll bet I’d fall in love with it, if I had one.
I never get tired of watching kittens getting goofy over mirrors. I had an anole once who’d go positively postal if he saw his reflection in a mirror; and I once saw a hamster get very grumpy about it. But kittens seem to be having fun.
It is said that clams are among the very few animals to recognize themselves in a mirror; but they don’t do anything about it.
There are old kittens and there are bold kittens, but there are no old, bold kittens. In fact, there aren’t any old kittens at all, strictly speaking.
This video focuses on bold kittens. They’ll jump on anything, big or small.
Mr. Nature promises to show us a squeaking caterpillar tomorrow. Stay tuned. How they do it without vocal organs must be a pretty neat trick.
A kitten in the hand is worth two in the shoebox. Is that how it goes? These are newborn kittens trustingly sleeping in some happy human’s hand. You’ll see in one of these clips a mother cat that doesn’t mind. It would be a good thing to be worthy of these animals’ trust–something to strive for.
I wonder if God ever does that with us when we’re asleep.
What did cats do before cardboard boxes were invented? Inquiring minds want to know. And why do big cats always try to fit into small boxes?
This is not to suggest that the government ought to fund a study of the matter.
Whether kittens are using your leg for a ladder, or cuddling on your shoulder while a tiny duckling cuddles on the kitten, you can count on kittens for a shot of sanity. And all things good, all things loving, all things wholesome and life-giving… they’re all God’s stuff. All His gifts to us–to keep us going till we receive eternal life.
