Caturday: Bah Humbug Whatever

Two Cuteporters sent us these photos after our Grumpy Post earlier this week. “Hi Cute Overload– saw your posts of the ‘Grumpy Cats’ and thought you might enjoy my Persian ‘Harry.’ He’s a ResQte™ that I’ve had for about 3 years. This is when got home from the groomers. He’s really very sweet and social but always looks a little grumpy. Love your website…it make my day every day!!!” -Jenny B.

Pronking Springbok

Not too sure what that means…so let’s go to The WikipediaTubes.

Stotting (also pronking or pronging) is a behavior of quadrupeds, particularly gazelles, in which they spring into the air, lifting all four feet off the ground simultaneously. Usually, the legs are held in a relatively stiff position and the back may be arched with the head pointing downward. Many explanations of stotting have been proposed; there is evidence that at least in some cases it is an honest signal to predators that the stotting animal is not worth pursuing.

That settles that. Now let’s see some stotting pronking pronging bouncing action!

They ARE Smarter Than Us, You Know

You look over and there’s your cat, just sitting there [blink blink] innocently staring at you…or so you thought.

When in reality, they’re absorbing knowledge.

And waiting for you………to leave.

Super Blorp Encore Presentayshe

There just aren’t many video clips that can compare to this one. The hoomin is Charlie Bird, and the place is Antarctica.

Coffee QTE

Artist Liv Buranday uses coffee grinds to create these images. (I bet coffee at That Place On Every Corner With The Green And White Logo doesn’t look like this!)

So THAT’S What He Wanted A 3D Printer For

Total world domination. Makes perfect sense coming from a cat, when you think about it.
