This Friday, a series of cat and other animal videos – mostly funny.
This first video is by Jim Hausman, who owns both the cat and the deer. The deer is totally immobile, a trait found in the wild when confronted with danger. You can see her sides rising and falling in breathing, but absolutely nothing else moves and the cat is very puzzled:
Who would ever guess that animals enjoy jumping on trampolines? Though, neither the pig, cat or the buffalo seem too pleased about it:
In the following video, I’m familiar with two of the sets of animals – first, the tortoise and the baby hippo: This was a few years ago, the baby hippo was rescued from along the beach in northern Kenya, taken to a zoo, where the tortoise befriended the baby hippo:
Then, the dog and the monkey – this is a zoo in Asia, can’t remember exactly where. However, the orangutan was fractious and clearly lonely, until the dog entered the scene – apparently a stray – and they became friends:
Which do you fear? For me, it is heights:
This past Monday, with an old friend from Cairo (and from the University of Notre Dame, Sudan, and Kenya) days, we took a little safari up into the Rusizi Wetlands and River, which is just next to the Congo.
The following two pictures, taken during earlier land safaris into the area, show the lovely scenes of the area – which is just 20 minutes by boat or vehicle from where I live:
Have a lovely weekend!
