I knew some hippies once who wanted to train their dog to be a vegetarian. So the dog ate their guinea pigs.
This video tells a much happier story. I can’t tell if the guinea pig is that large or the dog is that small–but they sure do love each other’s company.
These unlikely animal friendships seem less unlikely by the day. Cats and rabbits–who would’ve thought it? And I’m sure this is the first time I’ve ever seen a bunny chasing a cat–all in fun, though.
Short and accurate answer: of course not. Go ahead, explain why a big, strong, healthy dog should go bananas at the sight of a little piece of orange peel. Dogs’ minds are much too complex for us to read them.
I wonder if the world is changing. My dog Rags used to pretend to be asleep, tricking the birds into coming down to steal his dog food. Then he’d catch them and eat them. I don’t know why he did that.
But here’s a little bird determined to wake a sleepy cat, and the cat puts up with him without showing the slightest inclination to eat him. Who thought a cat and a parakeet could be friends?
Another little glimpse of what God’s Kingdom looks like.
You should see all the low-down, unedifying news stories I passed up covering today. Well, maybe you shouldn’t see them: I wish I hadn’t.
Anyway, for something completely different, wholesome, and soothing, here’s somebody’s pet barn owl doing some serious cuddling. A barn owl! Who would have ever thought it?
We do have much to be grateful for. Thank you, Father.
What is this–a Freddy the Pig book? All these animals need is to start their own newspaper…
Nah. It’s just a cat, a hamster, and two parakeets in happy harmony: don’t you wish you could join this bunch? I don’t know, I think maybe God is trying to show us something. Something it would be good for us to see.
Is it just me being sappier than usual, or is there something especially sweet and beautiful about this video? What gorgeous cats! What sweet little babies! Just about brought tears to my eyes. I think we’re getting a look at something that’s a foretaste of what God has in store for us who love Him.
I’d better go wash some dishes.
One thing we mammals have over other kinds of animals: we can kiss. Comes in handy, sometimes.
But I can just hear my mother screaming, “You let that dog slosh his tongue over the baby’s mouth???”
My cats, Robbie and Peep, sure got a rise out of this video.
Admit it–you’d just love to reach out and grab one or more of these kittens and cuddle it like nobody’s business. It might also get them to cool their jets.
If I still had my painted turtle and he heard this sound track, he’d be excited. He had this enduring hope that someday Henry the cat would feed him, in addition to us feeding him. Henry never came across with the goodies, though.
Granted: some people do go far out of their way for their cats. Well, we humans are a bit crazy that way. This cat gets warm milk in a bottle, heated specially for him, and his own little crib in which to drink it. In return, his humans get a break from ear-piercing demands for the bottle.
I wonder if they have a stroller for him, too.
