Caturday felid trifecta: Neutered cat texting, agility training of a kitten , new Simon’s cat

In line with my (PCC(E)’s) record of not missing any Caturday felids, I render three small items on this Saturday, where I’m in Santa Cruz.

First, the infamous texting cat finds out he’s been neutered:


Suki the Katze learns to be agile. I like the “walking on staff’s feet” trick at about 1:20. Suki even does a Maru impression at about 1:50.

The key, of course, is food—or, as Suki knows it, “Lebensmittel.”


Finally, a brand new Simon’sCat, with Simon’s renditions of the 9 essential items to make you cat happy.

    I’m not fluent in german, but I think “Lebensmittel” is more like “foodstuff” or “grocery”. “Essen” is what the cat wants.

    I spent some time trying to train a cat once. I seemed to have made up it’s mind it wasn’t going for anything so undignified.

    In Simon’s 4th segment on space to exercise, Simon reads a book backwards. I just wanted to let someone know.

      I spotted that. I want everyone to know too! Did you notice the clock on the wall in the 2nd segment [making breakfast]? The seconds hand is moving exactly correctly in real time.

    I admit that I feel sad about cats losing their balls.
