My Show Is On- Can We Talk LATER?

According to NBC, a new study suggests that- despite what we all know to be true – your cat isn’t totally ignoring you.

The key word there is “totally.”

The report’s in the July issue of Animal Cognition. Quoting the website article, “Dogs have evolved, and are bred, to follow their owner’s orders, but cats have not been. So sometimes cats appear aloof, but they have special relationships with their owners.”

(Like, sometimes they MIGHT share the remote with you. Or not.)

Red, White, And Baroo

Send us your Red, White, And Baroo-themed photo! We could post it on the Fourth of July for our Red, White, And Baroo celebrashe! Just send it in from now ’til noon PT on July 3rd. (If you could put BAROO in the subject line, it would be apreesh.)

We’d love the photo to have a Baroo IN it, but those are hard to capture, let’s face it. So just make sure it’s got July 4th colors. OK? We’re good?

BAROO [BAH-ROO] (noun) A common animal look expressing: “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by a head tilt and/or wrinkled brow.
