Was passing along the beach on the way back from the shops and had a lovely encounter with a couple of dogs being walked.
First was a collie sheepdog that turned to say hallo as they passed and then lay down on my foot for pets, gave her a scratch while talking with the owner.
Then a little while later there was this shaggy white & grey dog trailing far behind its owner who walked over to me. Was super friendly and even jumped up into my arms so it could be cuddled and lick my chin.
Not going to post it here because this is an animal thread that focuses on being cute or amusing but just saw an image of a turtle with a cracked shell for the first time and it was pretty horrifying. Needed to share to get it off my chest.
Wouldn't that just be something frustrating for your cat? To keep seeing the same movements of the mouse but be unable to catch it? But then according to all the comments apparently peoples cats love it...
So sweet. Though I've heard Deer can be pretty vicious? Dunno if that applies specifically to ones who are used to the presence of and being fed by people, and get annoyed when you aren't feeding them.
>>426944 That's a fake ceiling, some places where the height of the room is too high, they install a fake ceiling out of some soft material. How the cat got there is a different question, but I don't doubt their ability to get wherever they want to.
>>427965 I don't think they mind the snot to be honest. The bigger issue is how often humans will step on you because they don't even see you underfoot due to issues of your size and current visibility it makes me deeply unhappy whenever I randomly hear & feel the tell-tale crunch of a snail underfoot.
>>428787 >wasp mantidfly this thing not only looks half wasp half mantis, it also has its larvae climb on top of a spider until they start mating, move over to the female spider, wait there until the spider starts laying eggs, then the mantidfly larvae slips down into the spiders egg sack and start feeding on the spiders eggs.
