Too Hot To Handle

It’s a scorcher! Too hot for the boy – he’s moved very little today. I can’t blame him.

Bird bath = cat refreshment. Word.


Domino, chattering at birds… Look below for some interesting insights on this cool cat behaviour…

Chatter has this to say:

A recent discovery about wildcat hunting techniques has brought new light to a well-known behavior in domestic cats. A group of scientists doing fieldwork in the Amazon forests of Brazil were recording the vocalizations of a group of pied tamarin monkeys, when a wildcat showed up and started making calls identical to those of the monkeys.

This was the first recorded instance of a wildcat in the Americas mimicking the calls of its prey.

Wildlife Conservation Society researcher Fabio Rohe, who worked on the monkey project, suspects all cats can copy the calls of their prey. Cats are known for their physical agility, but this vocal manipulation of prey species indicates a physical cunning which merits further study, he says.

Even the most domesticated of cats still have hunting instincts, and behaviors related to those instincts surface from time to time. One of these is “chattering,” which generally happens when a cat sees a bird or a rodent outside a window.

Cat chatter usually begins with a bird loudly chirping near a cat. The cat becomes riveted to the bird. After just a minute, the cat will then start to tweet and chatter, its mouth moving in sync with the birds beak.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera Test

Not a scientific test at all, just a straight out of camera shot compared with a a little tweaked version to suit my tastes… First up is the unedited shot, fresh from the 8mp camera. Second is the tweaked version. This phone rocks.
