Cat Confused by Apple, Papa Fascinated by Cat--please send martinis

Oh, the fun you can have with cats.

This video shows
  • Why Apple computers come with remote controls
  • A cat too young to know how to play with a mouse
  • Cat owners will spare no expense when buying toys for their pets
  • Dogs are smarter because they know that Apples aren't toy computers
  • On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog, but they know that you're not a cat because cats aren't clever enough to use a computer
  • One more example of how I've lost my mind--I'm totally distracted by anything cute (if I start posting about my Hello Kitty collection, please come over and smother me in plush dolls, strap my headphones on and blast Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, pour me a martini or five, anything--just stop me before the damage is irreversible and I find Teletubbies scintillating)
Select all that apply, get your votes in early, discuss amongst yourselves.


  1. Oh that is too funny. But what it doesn't show is how a dog would just sit there with a stupid grin on its face, drooling obliviously onto the keyboard. :)

  2. Actually, Barky would likely curl up on the warmest part of the computer and drift off to sleep. It's a skill to be able to sleep anywhere, no matter the distraction. Right?

  3. Hmmm...I'm thinking that the kitten knows how to have fun with an inanimate (ok except for the screen image) object, whereas a dog pretty much would just try to chew on it. Are you sure Barky isn't a cat...he sounds like he is a true connoisseur of warm sunny spots.

  4. We've mentioned the possibility to him, which causes him to stalk out of the room, indignant.


    How dare we.
