Matthew and Harry

Matthew Cobb is sometimes a bit of a curmudgeon (especially when he’s yelling at me), but he’s a softie inside. You can see that from this one tw**t he made about his new kitten, Harry, and the two pictures he sent to me.

The most incredible animal photo in the history of Earth (and lagniappe)

This morning we’ll skip the “readers’ wildlife photos” post in favor of a few striking animal pictures and videos that readers sent me. The first four items are either scary or gruesome, but, you know, that’s nature. I’ve seen a lot of animal photos in my time, but the first one in the series below takes […]

A reader wins the “name the kitten” prize

On February 2, I showed the following picture of this unnamed Bengal kitten (to be precise, a “seal lynx point” Bengal), and asked readers to suggest a name, offering an autographed and cat-emblazoned copy of WEIT to whoever gave an adopted name. One of the names that owner Joe and his people were tossing around […]

I’ll Follow the Sun

Remember that old Beatles tune? Anyway, it’s suitable as a title for this video taken from Neatorama, with these notes about a passel of Japanese cats: The approximately 8 cats that live in the house love to sunbathe. There’s only a narrow strip of sunlight available on the floor. During the day, the sun moves across […]

Leon’s mountain adventure: La fin

Leon and his staff are on the way home now, tired but happy after their adventure. But Leon was still a bit randy on the way down, as he’s torn between the two queens he met: Leon: Kicia up on the mountain, Balbina down in the valley, what do you suggest? And maybe he’s had […]

Leon’s mountain adventure: part sept

Today is the next-to-last day of Leon’s Big Adventure. And the intrepid moggie, moving on, encounters yet another female cat! Malgorzata provides an introduction: Explanation first: they went for a long trek high into the mountains and there was a tiny mountain hostel containing one female cat named Kicia. And there’s a dialogue: Leon: Did you […]

Leon’s mountain adventure: Part cinq

Leon, the intrepid Polish tabby, is still enjoying his winter hiking vacation in the mountains of Poland, but now there’s a new element: he’s smitten by Balbina, the resident female cat! Leon: Let’s admire this sunset a bit quicker because Balbina and a scrumptious supper are waiting at the hostel. The saucy wench Balbina: Leon and Balbina are properly introduced: I […]

Leon’s mountain adventure: part quatre

Leon the tabby is having a blast hiking in the snowy Polish mountains. When I asked how far this cat could actually walk in the snow, Malgorzata relayed my question to Elzbieta, Leon’s staff, and I have this answer: Leon walked yesterday about 6 km. It took 1.5 hours. Then he demanded to be taken up. […]

Leon’s mountain adventure: part trois

The indefatigable tabby continues his hikes in the snowy mountains of Poland. Leon: Come quickly, we can see Tatra Mountains from there! \

Leon in the mountains, part deux

Leon continues his hiking adventure in the mountains of Poland, but the exercise and cold, fresh air has given him an appetite. Leon: This is a nice view but let’s go the mountain hostel to have some dumplings (pierogi).
