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 […]
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 […]
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.

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: 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 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. […]
