Caturday felid trifecta: cockatoo meows like a cat, classic cat Vines videos, and cat drives off bear

We have three videos today (and a bit of lagniappe). First, here’s a cockatoo who’s learned to meow like a cat. It doesn’t seem to have helped him befriend the moggies, though:

Here’s 15 minutes of very short videos; a Cat Vines compilation. The “cat machine gun” at 0:55 is a classic, but there are some other keepers here.

Finally, a very brave cat pwns a black bear:

Lagniappe: check out the #IfCatsWereInCharge Twi**er page, which has some nice entries (and some weird ones). Two nice ones:

    Those “fish tank” videos with the ripples when you touch the (touch-)screen are possibly one of the most delightfully inappropriately misused bits of technology ever. But I do wonder what proportion of cats fall for it initially, and stay fallen for it.

    The cockatoo’s problem (aside from being a bird) is that he’s using cat language inappropriately. Cats make friends by sniffing and body language, not by talking, and in any case that particular meow is a call for attention from a caregiver.

    A human who walked up to a group of strangers and opened the conversation with “Hey! I’m hungry! Can I get some service here?” would probably get pretty much the same reaction.
