Friday Films: If it Fits, I Sits–The Supercut Video

CatInABoxToday’s Friday Film is a great compilation of “cat in boxes” and other enclosures found in cat videos on the internet.  (If you view many cat videos, you should recognize many cat faces and some of their antics.)   The video really features the silliness of cats and some of the interesting spaces they discover.  It’s a new video, so hopefully it’s new to you too. 

Many thanks to Brittany for suggesting it!

Friday Films: Scaredy Cats

All cat lovers, or animal lovers in general, know that living with “a companion animal” usually means entertainment 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.  In this vein, today’s Friday Film feature is “Scaredy Cats”, a collection of short clips of “kitties being kitties” which should make you laugh out loud.  (Note:  No kitties were harmed in the making of this film!)

Friday Films: Rufus Tower

rufus-19_m

Guilt is a horrible thing.  Our cats get sick and usually we have to administer medicine of some kind to keep them well.  We know it’s for their own good.   But when we have to restrain them or trick them to get the medicine in them, we feel so bad.  And, of course, they are unhappy with us.

Today’s Friday Film deals with a guilty cat owner.  When Rufus, an orange tabby, had to undergo a series of painful eardrops, his owner Billy Browne felt awful.  And, to make matters worse, Rufus had even taken to hiding from Browne when he came home from work each night.

So the remorseful Browne decided he would make it up to his favorite feline….by building him the ultimate cardboard box cat playhouse! “Rufus loves boxes,” Browne explains.

In the video below, Browne sets out on his mission to win back Rufus’ love and affection, complete with 40 boxes, some tape and a box knife. He films the entire “making of the Rufus tower,” much to the delight of cat owners across the world.  I think Rufus forgave him—don’t you?

Friday Films: Sad Cat Diary

A cats gotta do what a cats gotta do!

We all have our bad days when no one seems to understand us or life doesn’t seem to be going our way.  Pity this poor feline who just can not understand “the authorities” or life in general, and seems to be on the verge of giving up hope. 

Life can be difficult for the pampered.
