Did you ever notice that cats and dogs handle scary things a little differently?
Cats tend to make themselves big, approach from the side, and do a lot of jumping backwards. Dogs tend to approach tentatively, stretch out their bodies and sniff from a distance before approaching cautiously – ready to make a quick get away if needed.
Being that today is Friday the 13th, I thought I would share two scared animal videos. The first is of a kitten approaching a tennis ball. The combination of the behavior and the music will have you giggling for sure. (My thanks to Grace for sending this one along!)
The second video is of a dog approaching a pile of (mussel?) shells. Perhaps not as funny as the kitten one, but the ending made me laugh. Somehow I think the dog was saying something here. What do you think?
