I saw this photo and chuckled out loud making Mimi wake from snoring as she snuggled under her blanket on the sofa and looking at me like something was alarming. Our pets can so make us laugh so I am sending the first picture in honor of Shelley’s cats over at Quaint Revival. They always have interesting stories about us hoomans.
The other picture is my crazy dog Mimi trying to entertain herself tonight in negative temps and many inches of snow because she did not want to come in. She was jumping up hitting the leaning over evergreen. When she realized just how cold she was getting she came running in.
Yes our pets do entertain us from time to time. It is what makes them special to us. And as my closing always speaks of kindness and we are talking of our pets, I though I would share some of my favorite pictures of animals showing kindness. We could learn a lot from them.
We have all heard the phrase of “Curiosity Killed the Cat”. I don’t have a cat at the moment so when I looked for pictures on line for curiosity pictures of cats there are thousands, even ones that sadly lived up to the phrase above. But I did find the one below that I thought was awesome. I have even used that same look when someone says something to me deserved of that look.
Cats are endearing creatures, especially when kittens. The things they will do in exploring their world.
Then they become demanding rulers of the house and you become the slave. Although Mimi, my coon hound, pretty much has rule of the house and dogs too can have that same look of curiosity when studying something they are trying to figure out.
And then we spent millions of dollars on a robot and sent it to Mars to find the life we just knew was there and we named it “Curiosity” – Who da’ thunk.
As we chuckle over the funniest of animals and man’s great curiosity of “what’s out there” lets us come closer to home and remember to always be kind. Even animals understand kindness and use it when they know it’s needed.
