Unleashing Nuclear Cute Option in 3…2…1…


I haven’t any substantial content for you today. I’m not sorry. In fact, I’m about to do something so vicious and evil that you will be mopping yourself off the floor for the next three days.

Prepare for kitten…

I know. I’m a bad, bad person. Bad, evil, cruel Dana. Perhaps these will help.

    SQEEEE!!!

    No, paper towels are not enough. I required medical intervention to piece my exploded head back together. You will be receiving an itemized bill in the mail, Dana.

    Take that, PZ!

    Except…that poor squirrel! Won’t somebody think of the squirrels?

    I love the way cats drop their lower jaw after sniffing something, as you can see the older cat doing in the video.

    That is called the flehman response. It is done to draw air over the vomeronasal organ, which is a secondary sense organ which provides a more detailed detection of some types of pheromones and other smells. It is common in many animals but is especially noticeable in cats and horses and artiodactyls such as deer and elk..
