Readers’ wildlife photos

First, let’s check on Stephen Barnard’s eagles.  He’s reported now that there are at least two chicks: he’s seen a pair and there may be more.  However, we don’t yet have a photo. But we do have a picture of parental care with Stephen’s caption: Getting everything just right. Watch out for the kids! I don’t […]

A finicky cat

We started this day with a finicky cat, and we’ll finish it with another. Reader Lori Way sent a photo of her fussy cat Peanut and an explanation: This photo goes with my comment on the fussy cat.  I mentioned how Peanut here sometimes will only eat his wet noms off a spoon, so we oblige. Here, […]

Two cats for Thursday morning

Every day I must receive at least fifteen items about cats from readers: photos, articles, websites, and so on (the most recent was a spate of emails about baby bobcats, who are über-cute). But were I to post all of them, this would turn into a cat website and I would be inundated with people telling […]

Cat o’ the day

This isn’t a regular feature, but I have a nice photo of Theo, the espresso-loving cat, sharing a moment of companionship with Gethyn, one of his staff. And since we started the day with an espresso-loving astronaut, why not finish it with an espresso-loving felid?

Giant cat head!

We shall end the week with a GIANT WOOLEN CAT HEAD, links to which were sent by at least four readers. And I have to say that if “awesome” retains any meaning as a word, this GIANT CAT HEAD fills the bill. You can find it at several sites; I’ll refer you, though, to the […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have many felids today, and a damn duck as well—with two photos (including the duck) taken by Professor Ceiling Cat. Most of the cat photos, lions (Panthera leo) come from reader Bob Lundgren: Attached are some photos of lions from my trip to Tanzania in January. The first two photos are a front and rear view of tree […]

The Borowitz report satirizes Hillary Clinton’s campaign announcement

By now you must have learned that The New Yorker’s Borowitz Report is satire, but it’s often sufficiently believable (given the dire state of everything in the U.S.) to convince the gullible that it’s real news. And, given Hillary Clinton’s campaign-announcement video—which shows her for only a brief span amidst a lot of “average Americans,” implying that she’s […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have bobcats today from reader Debra, who found one found sitting outside her house in California.  She also added another member of the group, her own cat, Woodstock. (Note: I was just reminded that I’d already posted these photos, which were taken with a cellphone in Telluride, Colorado. Well, I’ll leave them up anyway. You can’t […]

The cat that’s confusing the Internet

It’s just a simple question about this picture: I have no answer, but it’s causing a fracas, as people adduce various kinds of evidence to support one answer or another. Perhaps some day we’ll know which is correct. h/t: Doris
