Cats, Masters of Sleep

I dare you to try some of these sleep positions. Pioneered by cats, they are intended for all mammals, especially the ones that have backbones.

It is said that falling asleep face-first in a bowl of food gives you unexpected insights.

Kooky Kritters: The Saga Continues

I’m sure a dog who takes it upon himself to transfer stones from one stream to another is worthy of a saga. Ditto the cat who grooms the owl, and the cockatiel who wants to pluck keys off the keyboard. I’ve studied the Icelandic sagas, and I have to say they’re kind of short on kooky animals. Thorstein Cod-Biter would have been much the better for having a pet turtle to take care of.

‘Jurassic World IV’: Hedgehogs

I thought that headline might prove irresistible.

Anyhow… I’ve never had a hedgehog, but there’s something about those little characters that makes me smile when I see them. I have heard that they are most closely related to ladybugs and school administrators, but I don’t see that at all. You can tell by the way they run that they’re mammals.

Cats & Beards

I could almost refuse to believe this video. Both our cats have always shunned my beard, never displayed even a moment’s affinity for it. Peep will occasionally wash my forearm for me, and I had a mouse who used to straighten out my mustache–but daddy’s beard? Ugh! Perish the thought.

They might feel differently about it, I suppose, if they had to shave.

Incredible Cats & Dogs

You’re gonna see at least one clip in this video that you won’t believe. No, I won’t tell you what it is: you’ll have to watch.

Cats and dogs not only can learn to be friends; they can also learn to cooperate in doing things they shouldn’t do. These are highly intelligent animals! Much more so than we give them credit for. But I suspect that applies to most animals–don’t you?

Game of Thrones… for Cats

All right, they’re not exactly thrones… but this is how that show would’ve looked if it had been made by and for cats. Who knew you could have so much fun with half a dozen chairs?

You don’t believe me? Well, try this. Climb up on top of the coffee table, okay? Ready? Now–jump across the space between, right onto the couch! Wasn’t that fun?

Baby Bunnies

They’re even cuter than grey tree frogs–baby bunnies. I’ll never forget one night, I happened to be standing in the parking lot, and several baby cottontails decided to play a game: chasing each other around me. Well, they grew up in Patty’s garden; I guess they liked us. There I was in the middle of a ring of baby bunnies. My tree frogs never did that.


Some people think dogs have been around humans too long. Like, what’s with that big dog and the tiny black thing on the floor? Is that a bug? Did that dog flip out and eat a bug? And there’s the only one who has to go up the stairs backwards. What’s up with that? Betcha he picked it up from some dotty human in the household.

Cats & Babies: The Epic Continues

It looks like cats don’t like human babies to be sad. It also looks like they know exactly what to do about it when it happens. And cat comfort really works!

They don’t seem to be troubled by old men with beards being sad.

Endearingly Goofy Pets

Honestly, I could’ve sat here and cried as I watched the rat try to use $20 bills as nesting material–and so persistent! Wasn’t going to take no for an answer. I’m so glad my rats never did that.

In this video you will also be treated to the spectacle of a dog being chased by a fish. That’s something you don’t see every day.
