Animals: Amusing and Adorable!

    Most animals are natural comedians not to mention quite 'awwww' inducing. Here are some funny animals and cute animals.

    This is my cat Wendel. He likes to sleep on top of the fish tank. Sometimes he lets his tail dangle in the water. It cracks me up! In these pictures the water is low so his tail (and paw) is only dangling right above the water. But I've caught him with his tail fully immersed. He seems quite unperturbed by the wetness, which is surprising knowing cat's natural dislike for water. Especially because Wendel in particular seems to have a strong dislike for water. If I drink a glass of water with to much enthusiasm, he freaks out and runs away. Its that sloshing sound of water that really gets him.

    These pictures are from a couple of years ago and I may have shared them on this blog in the past, but they is worth revisiting, because they too cracks me up! It's Wendel climbing on the screen door at my old apartment. I was sitting at my desk and I looked over and there was Wendel, clinging precariously to the screen door. He was probably thinking "What did I get myself into?" or "This sure is a good stretch."

    Cats aren't the only funny animals, squirrels are pretty hilarious too. I came home from an outing and saw this squirrel leaping along my fence. He had something huge and round in his mouth. I didn't know what it was for a while, but now I know. It's a bread roll. I have no idea where he got it from. There is something funny about tiny animals eating something disproportionately large. This little guy's got quite the appetite! He didn't feel safe eating his roll on the fence so he nimbly climbed up the tree trunk and enjoyed his bread roll from up high. While I took pictures of him he glared down at me, thinking "don't even think about it lady, this roll is all mine!!!"

    One of my roommates from college brought with her to the dorms a VHS of one of her childhood favorites. It was entitled "Baby Animals Just Want To Have Fun." It was full of baby animals doing what they do best, behaving in an adorable manner. Here are some baby geese I came across recently. I live near lots of water and every spring I look forward to seeing the baby geese and ducks.
