It’s remarkable how gentle cats can be with human babies, isn’t it? With just a little hiccup or two–
Baby chews on pacifier ring. Baby offers it to cat, who takes his turn to chew on it. Baby puts it back into his own mouth. I can just hear my mother let out a shriek that you could hear in Timbuctoo…
I can see why a mirror might be confusing to a cat. It can stump a chameleon, a dog, or a hamster, too. But half a lemon? Why should that be cause for great caution? What does a cat think about a piece of lemon?
I love it when kittens first learn how to arch their backs, puff their tails, and hop around sideways–heap big threat display! Pretend to be scared when they do it.
Nothing like a few splashes of water to break up a cat fight. Cats can swim, of course, but most of them would very much rather not.
If your cat must swim, the bathtub is the best place for it. Steer clear of wading pools.
What happens when you goose a hamster (besides mixing a metaphor)? When an inexperienced sea turtle miscalculates the tide? Those are two eye-poppers in this collection. I don’t know… I just find hamsters awful hard to resist.
Maybe you were expecting to see a cat play the piano. Well, there’s one cat who does, but not this one. No–this one lies down on the middle of the keyboard. And then the human works around him. This is so soothing, it almos put me to zzzzzz…
If this cat video were a 1950s monster movie, the trailer would say:
SEE the attack on the box of tissues!
SEE perpetual-motion fuzzy cats! SEE them tumble, roll, and fall!
SEE the helpless scientists try to control it!

What’s the matter with these dogs? They’re bigger and stronger than cats. Why do they let cats dominate them?
Our family dog, Pepper, had to stay with us one weekend, and we were uneasy because there was a stray cat who’d had her two kittens here in our apartment just a few nights ago; and Pepper never met a cat she wouldn’t chase. We prepared to intervene quickly.
But somehow Pepper and Angel, without benefit of language, divided the apartment between them and there was no fuss at all. Pepper knew better than to mess with Angel’s kittens. We all had a nice, peaceful weekend.
Who doesn’t love a trip to the playground? (Don’t answer that.) Dogs do. They can relax on the swings, but the real action is on the sliding boards. It’s a lot easier going down the chute than going up.
You will have noticed there’s no footage of dogs on the merry-go-round.
When they’re not stealing cigarettes or money, most of the cats in this video are busy getting wet. They have an uncanny ability for falling into bathtubs full of water. Sinks are quite popular, too.
Sprinkle a few drops of water on my cats, though, and they run away.
I am happy to be able to say my cats don’t do this. They only cause things to fall off the table as they bumble around up there.
But why do so many cats get a kick out of knocking things to the floor?
And try to explain the bozo who stands there filming the cat as it prepares to knock an egg off the table. It’d serve him right if the egg landed on his shoe.
