We’re Gonna Have A Cat (Café) Party

Maybe I knew Melbourne had a Cat Café.
Maybe I didn’t.
Anyway, daughter and I are visiting tomorrow.
Apparently someone will have trouble sleeping tonight.
(And it won’t be me.)

Took Bella the kelpie for a walk today.

Bella tracks the right hand side of the footpath both on the outward bound and return sections of the journey.

It’s never lonely working at MGPC with Squawkie the crow incessantly displaying his disapproval of our windows.

Animals Reacting To Musical Instruments

As amusing as this video is, the fact that when I started playing it my cat came and sat on my lap (and is helping me type this) adds to the enjoyment.
A variety of animals, a variety of instruments, a variety of reactions.

Smidge approves.

What Is The Difference Between Bees, Wasps, and Hornets? (via Today I Found Out)

This video from Today I Found Out is about the differences between bees, wasps, and hornets.
So, hornets are a type of wasp, and wasps can be either social or solitary.
And after their working life wasps spend their time waiting to die getting drunk.
Or something like that.
Watch the video.
