Soft Kitty 2.0: The Cute Animal Thread

Recommended Posts

I feel so sad for the loss of a cat that I never met in 'person'.  Grandpa Mason will be missed.  I'm hoping that Aura (aka 'Auracuda') will take over for him.  I know she's good at giving Wet Willies, but I'm not sure about her hair-styling skills.  

For those of you who didn't keep up with Grandpa Mason (and his kittens), there are some great videos on the tinykittens site and on their Facebook page (and on the Grandpa Mason and his kittens page as well).

Soooo cute!

Now, imagine 3 of those cuties lined up in a row in front of individual bowls of water.  Their little heads are trapped in a contraption that looks like little toilet seats, and those seats are lowered until the little ducks' heads are submerged, and they blow bubbles.  That was my introduction to a visiting zoologist doing research on diving ducks and the breathing response (all for the greater good of SIDS research).  The ducks were unharmed (at least, physically - I have no idea how many years of therapy they had to undergo thereafter).  But the greatest thing was that he recorded the experiment and set it to classical music.  I am ashamed to admit I laughed ... a lot.

This was back in 1980, when my zoologist SO used condoms to complete his experiment on an artificial heart lung device to use on fish.  Seriously - that was the only time I ever bought condoms!   :~)

ETA: "SCIENCE, Bitch!"

I guess I’m on a water swimming theme today. BTW. The above and these photos were taken by Laurent Schwebel. A photographer who was stabbed to death in Buenos Aires by someone who wanted his camera equipment. He was outstanding.

Incredible.  I didn't know whether to give your post a heart for the beautiful images or a sad face for the senseless murder.

I very much understand. He was only 52 and so talented.
