fat cat running

look at him… look at how deliberate each step and movement is. look at how mathematically perfect that 90 degree corner turn was… this cat is on another level far beyond us all

This is the grumpy-trot, for when you’re unsettled by something but not so frightened that you would waste your energy by full-out running.
If you watch a cat from perfectly behind, its little kitty-paunch-apron swings from side to side hilariously.

I am still looking at that nerd blog for Ed, Edd n Eddy,
and a question arose in my head…

Are you ready to hear it?
No? Well too bad!

…Why do Chow-Chows have blue tongues?

The stories are varied. That a god painting the sky blue dropped paint to the world, which the dogs licked up. That the colour of the mouth warded off evil, or was lucky. That a kind non-dog-eating monk put charcoal in the forest and it was eaten by a fluffy dog who was stained in the mouth ever since. We apply it to chows but if any of these stories can be traced back far enough, they were likely about the Tang dogs.

The truth is we just don’t know! There are theories about it in other animals, such as giraffes and skinks, but why dogs get blue tongues isn’t really understood from my research; it’s simply some pigmentation, similar to our own freckles, and we’ve chosen to selectively breed for it. Shar pei also have blue/black tongues, and spots can show up wherever they please regardless of breed or mix. A lot of purebred shepherds and retrievers get them too! The pigment can also appear on other parts of the mouth as well.

Have a spotted-tongue Taiwan dog. I believe it to be 100% plausible that black-tongued dogs ate or licked something up, she is an opportunist with an IRON-CLAD digestive tract.

Tried taking Leopold for a walk down to the beach.

We almost got all the way there, but on the corner we met a tiny calico about half his size who lives in the trailer park.

She growl at him, he hissed, then he turned tail and grumpy-trotted all the way home with his ears flat.

SUCH A PANSY.

(When I do take him for occasional walks, it’s without a leash. He is a velcro cat and won’t let me out of his sight outside. Worst thing that happens is he gets spooked and runs straight home. There are no rogue dogs in the neighbourhood and he is afraid of crossing streets.)

CURRENT WORK IN HERPETOLOGY:

Underground Amphibian Evolved Unique Ears to Track Preys and Predators

by Stephen Adkins

Caecilians, worm-like (often) underground amphibians, evolved unique ears to sense underground vibrations, according to a Carleton University - Canada study. Researchers said that caecilians have an organ in the ear that is larger than that in other amphibians (frogs and salamanders).

Dr Hillary Maddin, a lead author on the study, said that soil-borne animals experience same pressures as those flying or swimming. As a result, researchers predicted similar-shaped ears. But, caecilians have a larger ventral organ, probably used for transmitting vibrations from the ground to the ear.

Maddin said that underground animals have their heads on the ground all the time due to being limbless. Their ears are also non-functioning and therefore, cannot hear any airborne sounds. However, this larger organ determines vibrations and helps them track preys or know if predators are around…

Watch this fucking disturbing video of a caecilian feeding her offspring.
