Farewell animals

Tomorrow there will be a quick Hili post, but don’t expect much more. I am, however, flying business class, so maybe we’ll have some documentation from the lounge (especially the food). To send myself off, and bid readers a farewell, here are three videos.

First, a CATerpillar that looks remarkably catlike. It’s the caterpillar of the Pachmarhi bushbrown (Mycalesis perseoides), which as an adult is a nondescript brown job with eyespots. Isn’t it adorable? (h/t: Aaron)

A real cat, stupefied by red dot. Look at those eyes!

and a raccoon eating popcorn while watching television:

    Love the cat. Business class…very nice. What is that, 3 or 4 hours?

    I think that first video may be footage from a live-action My Friend Totoro.

    Cat, twenty minutes later: “Death to Videodrome. Long live the new flesh.”

    By the way, why are some cats fooled by laser pointers and flashlights? No cat I’ve ever served has shown the slightest interest in them.

    Coons are delightful playmates. Don’t leave them alone in your house.
