Listen to God’s Sentinels

Boy, howdy, that last post left a foul taste in my mouth!

Well, here’s a tiny watchman on the wall–a little pika chirping out a warning. These small relatives of rabbits live among the rocky slopes of mountains, and they let each other know when danger’s coming.

How often have God’s watchmen sounded the trumpet from the walls! It would have been good for us to listen.

Can You Count the Kittens?

Are there four, five, or six of these hyper kittens? You’ll have to wait till they all conk out. Their mother is auditioning for a role as a symbol of stoicism.

Counting kittens is hard. You can practice by counting the guppies in the aquarium at the pet store. Take care not to burn out your brain.

Cats Want Air Time, Too!

The people in these videos might have saved themselves some trouble if they’d only made up their minds to let the cats hold center stage. Admit it–you’d rather watch the cats anyhow.

A Tail of Two Kitties

Sorry about the headline, but I simply couldn’t bear to let it go to waste. Maybe one of you can use it as the title of a story.

I now feel like a bad guy because I didn’t give my kittens balls of yarn. Patty likes to knit, so we usually have yarn; it just never occurred to me to share it with cats. Ours had to settle for pipe cleaners, cardboard boxes, and jingly balls. Oh, well…

Emergency False Facts!

G’day! Are you noozed out–just can’t stand any more? Byron the Quokka here, with relief–yes, I said relief!

Brought to you by Quokka University and Acme False Facts Inc., we present a new set of guaranteed false facts that will not only take your mind off the nooze, but will also help you to astound your friends with all the stuff you know but they don’t. Just remember to recite your false fact with absolute confidence! And practice a withering glance of pity that’ll make anyone who questions you feel ignorant.

Without further ado, here are some samples from our newest set.

*In 1880 a man who claimed to have visited the Moon was given a ticker-tape parade by the town of Bent Spoon, Indiana. At the conclusion of the parade, they hanged him.

*A recent poll shows that 41% of the people descended from Osric Witling never heard of him. And neither has anybody else.

*When the musical We’ve Got Chiggers opened on Broadway on March 12, 1951, half the audience went home with real chiggers they’d unknowingly picked up in the theater, resulting in a massive lawsuit that closed the show after only one performance.

*With the seats in the stadium now occupied by cardboard cutouts of fans, Major League Baseball plans to populate the playing field and the dugouts with cardboard cutouts of the players.

*The discovery of the source of the River Nile was delayed for many years by rumors that Queen Victoria had already been there on her honeymoon. But current DNA analyses suggest she didn’t like any of the hotels in the neighborhood.

Well, that should be enough to get you started! Each and every card in the Emergency False Facts Set is guaranteed to be totally devoid of truth–and it can all be yours for a mere $1.28 (US), plus $640 shipping.

You Wanted More Norbert?

Well, okay, here’s a Norbert video I hadn’t posted yet. I hope his growing fame doesn’t make him haughty (and how many times have you seen that word used, lately?). This amazing little dog is loved all over the world.

Hands off, Hollywood!

Chickens’ Welcome Wagon

I have no excuse for posting this, except I really do love to watch chickens run. And if they’re going to run to meet you when they see you coming–well, what more could anybody ask?

Little Dog, Little Cat, Big Chuckle

The little white dog wants to play. Apparently the cat does not. How do you get the cat cranked up to play. (Hint: You don’t. Cats don’t do what they don’t want to do.)

No silly animals were hurt in the making of this video. (The cat was afraid of looking silly, but the dog simply didn’t care.)

When Your Lamb Says, ‘Pet Me’

I believe the only animal mentioned in the Bible as a pet is the ewe lamb in Nathan’s parable to David (2 Samuel 12:1-4).

If a lamb did this with me, he or she would be my lamb forever.

What we’re getting here is a little glimpse of paradise. God has good things in store for us.

Sanity Break: One Hyper Dog

This is one of my all-time favorite videos, and I kind of need it now: the nooze is getting to me.

Watch the cat tap the dog, and then watch the dog go positively hyper. The cat doesn’t know what to make of it. Who says a dog can’t confuse a cat?
