HumorouS VideoS. The Living with Cats edition. Redux. Bonus: Amazing Discovery of New Penguin Colony

Since it made not sense that the YouTube user who originally posted these videos decided to commence legal action against him/herself, I kept the original post, checked back and there they were. May have been a glitch or the matter was resolved over a bottle of fermented potatoes.

Who moved my potato?



"WAS THERE SOME PART OF DO NOT TOUCH MY POTATO THAT YOU DID NOT UNDERSTAND? 
WAS I SPEAKING RUSSIAN IN FRENCH?
NO?
THEN DO NOT MOVE OR THROW MY POTATO IN THE GARBAGE AGAIN, HUUUMAN!!!!!!"
Note: This is an example of aggressive/excited play. Probably a repetitive game as the potato must remain under the fridge at all times.

Since I live with them, I sometimes wonder who is entertaining whom: 


What is it?
It's a mouse? I'll stalk it down. It's not a mouse. Oh! It's moving. I'm a bunny.
Bunnies are scared. I'm a PREDATOR!
*freezes* Whoa! I'm a meerkat?
"Curiosity...". Naaah. Approach with caution.
Back up. Back up. Phew. It stopped.
Here it comes again. I'm a squirrel? A kangaroo? I have 2 paws. No, I have 4. What do I do with them? I'm so confused.
Oh, yeah?! Are you movin' at me? Cuz you ain't movin' much.
I AM CAT! I CHEW YOU!

Just in case you have not seen this amazing new discovery of an astonishing colony of penguins or the previous videos are pulled again just to drive me crazy:





While it may seem like this is turning into a video blog, I have simply been too busy to write, but thought these were worth sharing. Have a nice weekend.

  1. 1st vid: I love seeing people amused by their kitties :)

    2nd vid: What a pretty kitty. Funny how he sat on his hind legs like that.

    3rd vid: wow! that iceberg at 0:59 looks like an old ruined castle or something. very cool.
    Do the flying penguins go to the same place as the flying pigs?

  2. The vids were neat but your written commentary was the kicker! Perhaps you should produce a public service video on the dangers of catnip addiction. One of my girls goes from Pollyanna to Adolph Hiss-ler in 5 seconds flat. Ugly. Very ugly.

  3. "I AM CAT! I CHEW YOU!"

    Awesome to the MAX. Seriously, cats are the coolest.

  4. It's interesting how the cat's brain seems to handle conflicting concepts of curiosity versus caution. It is like they are somewhat afraid of the stimulus but they are likewise compelled to investigate it.

    We had a cat that could open doors and get into cabinets. He once climbed into the upper cabinet over the stove where he knew his food was stored, pulling it out and smashing the bag onto the floor.

    We had to remove the door levers in some cases to keep the cat out of certain areas of our house. Their little brains are interesting.

  5. @Laoch, have I accomplished the impossible and shown you something new?:)

    @Sprite, my thoughts exactly. Being entertained by them is international. My friend who sent me the link said the same thing, really handsome cat.

    I NOTICED THAT TOO!!!There's a wall too. Wonder if it's CGI.

  6. @Lord Wellbourne, thanks. A PSA to stay away from heavy machinery while under the influence of catnip?
    "Hissler". LOL.

    @Kev D., thank you Master Comedian. *takes bow*.
    They are cool. Did I say that out loud again?

  7. Robert, I really like your description of afraid of stimuli, but "compelled" to investigate. They fascinate me, sometimes my household feels like a behavioral science experiment.

    There is a lot of research on animal intelligence being done lately, cats in particular, appear to be more intelligent than we thought. As to brain size...Rats...Cephalopods...same thing: much, much more intelligent than imagined. Probably an upcoming post, if I ever catch up on post ideas.

  8. And they poop in a box in a house.
    What's not to love?

  11. ah, youtube, the place where cat lovers can post & watch millions of kitty videos to their hearts content. (i have a youtube account where i post kitty videos too.)

  12. The wall looked to be real. It caught my eye because we had just finished watching the first episode of "Camelot". When the castle was still in ruins.

  13. @SherilinR, didn't know that. What's your link?

    @Sprite, you're going to make me find out if it's CGI or not, aren't you? Haven't watched it, any good?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nari, yes, they are good for your health.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes it was. Although alot darker than "Merlin" and a few boobie scenes.
    But it has the potential to be good.

  18. I did not realize that BBC stands for Bullshit Bullocks Caca.

  19. @SherilinR, strange how adult cats don't have a mothering instinct toward all kittens. Better than the hissing welcome one of ours gave a foster kitten. Thanks for sharing your video:)

    @dbs, they do bring out that inner child don't they?
    Wait, the bbc didn't get you, did they? DID THEY?!? :)
