Hello again. It’s Sunday so it must be time to pull up your cat and share some kitteh chat. Kuroneko and I have made it through another week. I think sometimes she resents me going to work. I’d like nothing more than to let her outside unsupervised but at the rate cats disappear around here, I just don’t dare. I think I’m going to start looking for a place closer to the ground, much closer to work and further from busy streets and parking lots that have an over representation of young males. My lease is up in June and though moving is such a friggin hassle, I think Neko would be happier if she had somewhere to be while I’m at work.

I grew up in the country and keeping indoor only cats is very foreign to me but Kuroneko is such an important part of my life that I won’t put her outside in such a high risk environment. I’m always seeing new kittehs around here. Their two leggeds move in and let them outside and they hang around for a couple of weeks and the POOF! they vanish. I’ve put posters up in the mail room before, attempting to warn new residents to keep an eye on their cats because we have one or more people around here who really hates cats and new cats don’t last long but management won’t leave them up.

Sorry for the downer. On to the pictures.

Okay, you’re right, this isn’t a cat video. It’s a dolphin rescue with a twist. the dolphin found a group of humans and presented itself for rescue.

That dolphin video is really a wonderful example of how intelligent dolphins are. It is, in my opinion, compelling evidence for sentience. Right down to the group of people the dolphin chose to present itself to, the act shows that a lot of thought went into it. I mean, who better to present yourself for rescue to than a group of people that are A) there on a daily basis and B) are only armed with cameras? Presenting itself to fishermen might have been the last thing it ever did. Anyway, it warmed my heart. I guess it’s a good thing they weren’t Japanese.

I hope everybody has a wonderful week ahead, (regardless of the number of legs one has), but please remember to set aside time to spend with the animals who share your life. Let them know they are loved and adored. See your fonts in the comments!
