From Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal:
They forgot dairy. . .
Another sign that cats are more advanced than dogs. In my experience, dogs do not differentiate between M and MP (unfortunately).
Now if cats would just learn to differentiate between M and MS (meat but smelly).
Cats discrimination seems to be low on the attack side. I’d say there are two kinds: moving and non-moving. Attack first then see if it tastes good.
I wonder where arthropods fit on that spectrum….
Either meat or meat-but-pointy, depending on whether they can sting or not.
My uncle had a cat that loved chowing down on crickets.
It is very rare that I’m disturbed by a cricket chirping inside the house. (Outside they’re fine, but inside they’re like an alarm clock.)
But, when I do hear one, all I have to do is grab Baihu, aim him in the general direction of the sound, and wait no more than a few minutes before the sound of a cricket rubbing its legs is replaced by the quiet sound of crunching chitin. And then, a few seconds later, silence.
Well, okay, Baihu’s somewhat of a talker, but that’s fine. He generally has worthwhile stuff to say, and he’s rarely disruptive.
Isa is relentless in her stalking of centipedes, and she helps me enforce my rule concerning sharing my home – I do not willingly share my space with any living creature whose natural complement of legs is more than four or less than two.
What’ve you got against Dufflepuds?
Hade Linnaeus varit katt. För fann! Lyckligtvis var han inte .
When I laughed at seeing this, a non-biologist co-worker asked me why I was laughing. I showed her. She thought it was non-funny…
