Baby Sloth Time!

This is Edward, a baby two-toed sloth, and it’s feeding time.

There was a great 19th-century chess master, Elijah Williams, who was nicknamed “the Bristol Sloth,” but probably not because he was such a cute baby. Someone calculated that Williams, on the average, took two-and-a-half hours to make a single move.

Even Edward can probably beat that.


Some Very Silly Dogs

The dogs in this video are terrified of cats. Isn’t that disgraceful? Like, they should have to turn in their dog badges and apply for positions as mice. But I’ve also seen videos of cats who are afraid of mice. Shameful.

P.S.–Please, please don’t let your cat or your dog out on the street. It’s dangerous enough for humans, the way folks drive these days.


Rats! (They’re Really Quite Nice)

Rats make truly lovable pets. They’re very, very smart: if they lived longer, they’d be composing symphonies. They’re affectionate, adaptable–just think of them as small cats with hairless tails.

I have seen videos of cats opening someone’s purse and taking the money–to do what with, who knows? In this video, you’ll see a rat do it. I suspect a cat put him up to it.


Animal Hijinks

Somebody in this video wants you to believe he has a pet humpback whale. I’ll believe it when I see his water bill.

In this compilation you will also see how fast a horse can eat a watermelon, how far a donkey can walk on his hind legs when he puts his mind to it, and a very naughty bear. Among others equally amusing.


Sanity Break: Kittens Galore

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.


Frolicky Baby Goats

There must be something special about baby goats: see how patient all the other animals are with them. The people, too. I am told they grow up to be really quite large and ought not to be brought into the house, so that probably sinks my chance of getting one. I wonder how a baby goat would get along with my cats.


Cats vs. Parrots: The Video

I want to know why these birds are totally unafraid to tussle with cats that could easily eat them. Okay, a parrot as big as the cat probably has an even chance. But those little parakeets? Only two explanations suggest themselves: either these birds have a death-wish (not likely), or else they know the cats won’t hurt them. And the cats could, but they don’t. They just have fun together.

Again–is God showing us something about Creation’s future?


The Start of a Beautiful Friendship

The baby goat is only four days old, but the four-month-old puppy doesn’t know that. For him it’s a case of love at first sight. Watch him do everything he can think of, to get the goat to play with him. If the other goat videos I’ve seen are any guide, he won’t have long to wait before they’re romping around together like mad.


Kooky Kritters

All right, time for a sanity break. Critter video. Cats & dogs & all. With a couple of babies thrown in.

I’ve never seen a dog and a mongoose trying for a meeting of the minds before. And there’s the cat and the baby holding hands. Priceless.


The Battle for the Bed

Poor dogs. They take such guff from cats. (What am I saying? I take guff from cats, too.) And much of this interaction winds up focused on the dog’s bed, commandeered by the cat.

Go ahead–explain it. I can’t.
