The funnist/cutest things your pets do [fish and animals]

I would have to say, the cutest thing I have ever seen one of my animals ever do was today.

myself, trying to read a book
mama cat, Phantom, tired of kitten sitting
papa cat, Sky, motherly instincts

Okay, earlier today, while I was reading a book [home-study] I happened to hear this noise. Looking up, I saw one of my two adult cats, Phantom [black female stray] wandering towards me from her box. [the box is where she has been tending to her kittens, four buddles of meowing, hungry fur]

Anyways, Phantom has always been a friendly cat, once she learned to trust people again [she was seriously abused when she was younger, her tail was badly broken and a leg as well]. While I was reading, she moves up, lies down, yawns, and falls completely asleep.

The box is within eyesight, and as I continued to read my book, I happened to catch sight of papa cat, Sky cause he never walks quietly. Phantom has been very protective of her babies, and always beat the c*** out of Sky if he got too close, so this was his first chance to see them.

So he investigates, sniffing them and nuzzling them [who says father cats have no maternal instincts]. Anyways, since Phantom was asleep and since they used to share the box [which is quite large] Sky kind of looked at me like "she does it, why can I?"

Before I could stop the silly cat, he was in the box, stretched out. Never once hurt one kitten. Since he wasn't doing anything nasty, I decided to leave him and it wasn't long before kittens, and papa were asleep.


One blue point [blue-grey body, with slate blue tail, ears, mask, and legs] Siamese, Sky; one black stray cat female, Phantom;

their babies {March 1st, 2004[03/01/04]}: Tulip, lilac female [pink-grey legs, tail, mask, and ears with white body]; Ginger, ginger female; Shadow, black male; SnowBell, white female.

two Canaries [Rex, {normal} Sama {albino}]. Two out of three eggs has hatched already, live babies. Sadly, the third baby was unable to make it.

One pure-bred but sadly unregistered grey Arabian filly called Gjina;
One light brown furred WOLF called Flame {the park officials of Yellowstone didn't want him}

I have five cats, ranging from 2-5 years old. It continues to amaze me how locked into a routine animals can get - I guess just like their people. My cats can tell time. One of them, Ana, gets daily medication, and to make the pill go down easier, that's when the cats have treat time. Treat time happens no later than 6 p.m. around here, and if you don't believe it, just ask Ana. About 5, she begins looking for me and meowing insistently. By 6, she'll run between my legs to trip me, and then yell for treats.

Same way with weekend mornings. . . five days a week, we get up about 5:15 a.m. around here, and the cats see no need to change that on the weekend. If I'm not up by seven, two or three of them will lie down in front of my bedroom door, and start calling me. If a few minutes of that doesn't do it, they go get Emma, who is probably reclined in some upholstered piece of furniture. She then comes to the door and calls me, and if I don't answer, Emma starts to bodyslam the door. I know it's Emma. I've opened the door before and caught her in mid-leap. She has landed (on her feet) unceremoniously in front of me a couple of times.

I guess you can say I caught my cat how to dance, yeah that's right DANCE! It's name is Kitty. When she gets real exciting she sorta paws at the air. We stuck her on the kitchen counter one day cause she was doing this funny dancing looking stuff. We started saying stupid stuff like "yeah, dance kitty!" and now, everytime you put her on the counter and say dance kitty and pet her, she'll do it. She just claws at the counter but it is slippery, so it slides across, and kinda looks funny.

Also, when we wanna get my dogs to go outside, all I gotta do is walk out onto the deck, look up into the trees and say, "I see a squirrell, go get it!" and out the door they go, barking up a storm =)

My turtles think that everything that enters the threshold of their tank is food, including my hand. So it is kinda fun to stick my finger above their mouths, and they chomp down on it until I pull them outta the water. I'm trying to teach them that they can't eat me, but no luck so far

I could go on and on, but I'll stop for now 8)

While I'm watching TV or working on the computer, my mice like to run up my arm and hang out inside my collar.
Occasionally, one will stick her snout in my ear and start squeaking loudly! 8O

My dog dudley steals things and hides them. Bein a basset hound, his mouth is large, and you cannot easily tell if he has something small in there. Just yesterday he stole this little travel alarm clock i use for a household timer (laundry, cooking, etc.) when I wasn't paying attention. Searched high and low for it, nothing doing. Today, I watched him out in the yard, checking all his hiding spots to make sure his "treasures" are all accounted for. Sure enough, he pulls my clock out from under a bush! A few chew marks, and it rained some last night but the clock still works. Sneaky son of a b**ch! ( I can call him that cuz it's true!)

My cat fetches. He has rules tho; the toy MUST go thru a doorway or you will be walking over, picking it up and throwing it again. Once it leaves the room competely, it must be smacked into the kitchen where it is disemboweled as all vicious things must be (such as my knee, hubby's elbow and our feet; I haven't the heart to tell him we don't keep our bowels there). And the only thing he'll fetch is his fuzzy piggy toy. You can throw the fuzzy hedgehog all you want; he's not bringing it back.
