Look, I can’t vouch that this is true love, but it’s cute anyway. And if an owl and a pussycat can become amorous, why not a deer and a pussycat? This was posted on Viralnova, which shows six photos of cervid-felid congress (I reproduce four below). The short tale: Every morning, one pet owner in […]

I’ve been remiss finding animal cams this year, but reader Christian called my attention to a good one from the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The cam, which you can see livestreamed here, shows a cheetah mom and her five cubs, born at the Metro Richmond Zoo October 6. (The cam operates 24/7.) They’re only five weeks old, […]
It’s snowing in Chicago now, but I’d still go for an ice cream cone. And so would a cat. Reader P. sent me a link to this ineffably cute video showing a moggie having a grand old time nomming ice cream. If you don’t smile at it, you don’t belong here! It’s been up only […]
A reader tw**ted my critique of David Dunn’s HuffPost article (you know, the one in which he argues that theology isn’t about God) to Dunn himself, and Dunn responded on Twi**er. I love the picture of Ceiling Cat in his response. And I can testify from personal experience that feline theology is about Ceiling Cat!
The Daily News reports an encounter of the felid kind: On Halloween, two-year-old Marshall Shaffer wore his orange and black costume to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Wash. There, he quickly befriended Kali, a 7-month-old Sumatran tiger. There’s a video (below) and several photos (I give one, and there are more at […]
This is a new one on me. After I just told you that cats are atheists, reader Lorena sent me a picture she took of a can of cat food she bought for her ailing cat (she thought it would stimulate his appetite): So there are Jewish cats as well as atheist cats! I don’t […]
From the DSM IV-TR: I think it’s merely borderline purrsonality disorder. (From The Abstruse Goose) Surely you know enough French to read the caption: And the Official Website Motto™ h/t: Steve, Diane
In a comment below, reader Michael calls attention to two YouTube videos of the D.C. zoo’s tiger-cub swim test, and I thought I’d post them for grins (and education, but mostly grins): This shorter clip shows the underwater view of poor Bandar being heaved into the drink. It’s clear that this animal, like so many […]
Answer: Throw it into the water. MSNBC’s Photo Blog has an incredibly endearing series of photos of two young Sumatran tiger cubs undergoing their requisite swimming tests. The explanation? Two Sumatran tiger cubs born Aug. 5 took a swimming test to show their ability to keep their heads above water, navigate the shallow end of […]
Reader Marta sends us a picture of her sink-bound moggie: Here is Evil, doing what he does best–nothing, while maintaining constant surveillance of me while he’s doing it.
