A little break from the class warfare obozo has declared....
Cat on boat plays with dolphin
Uhhh, people...dolphins eat meat. They eat small things, like fish squid, maybe a bird or sea otter now and then. What do ya think a cat looks like to a dolphin?
Holy cow, that was my cute fix for today. I watched it twice, LOL. I had a precious cat who looked very much like the one in the video, too.
"..I told him to set the hook and cause an international incident"
Well since you pinged me about the French cat video, I thought I would repay the favor with this Cat & Dolphin video.
I think the dolphin was just curious about the cat. If it wanted to eat the cat, it would be a video about a cat in dolphin.
Probably like nothing he’s ever seen before, which is why he is so curious. Maybe after he had played with it for a while and figured out what it was, he would try to eat it. Predators usually don’t try to eat something they don’t recognize right off the bat, especially when the thing is a fellow predator. That saves humans from a lot of wild animal attacks, since they don’t know where to stick us in their food chain unless they’ve become familiarized with us.
Or the other way around... Maybe the cat is thinking “man... If I can just pull this off, I’ll eat like a king...”
Agreed. It was very dangerous (for the cat) to let that cat play with the Dolphin. The cat could have been a ritz cracker in seconds.
My question is, how would a cat and a dolphin, two very different species, with no apparent commonality with which to communicate, mutually understand that they are "playing" and not seeing a potential predator or prey in the other?
The dolphin is at least as smart as a human. I bet it saw the cat interacting with humans and knew it was a pet.
They each smell fish on their breath.
That cat looks like one of mine. I loved this. I had to call the hubby in to see it.
They why haven't they figured out how to avoid fishing nets?
And why do they frequently beach themselves on beaches only to dry out and die?
In other words, those weren't wild fish.........
They were captive dolphins at a park in Florida.......1997 video.
“They why haven’t they figured out how to avoid fishing nets?”
I know a lot of humans that are dumbarses.
Dubstep Cat wants to play, too!
And so does DJ Whiskers!
Foolish to put this on the internet. Someone may well be arrested and do time and end up with a felony record over this.
It amazes me when an unimaginable combo of two species get along.
The “awwww” of the day!
How was that determined? I'd like to see their space shuttle.
Thanks for the ping. Again. The video is still cute, too! [smiles]
You’re welcome again(x2).
Just my opinion. I would like to see you echo locate a fish in total darkness.
So, Dolphins use echolocation, so do bats, are they as smart as humans?
So, have dolphins mastered farming, invented the wheel, a language perhaps; that doesn't require opposable thumbs?
I say this because the liberal crowd and I'm not lumping you in with them are enamored with dolphins and how smart they supposedly are and if only they had opposable thumbs the things they could teach us. What is it that makes them so smart? I think it's just a way to anthropomorphize them so self hating liberals can say humans can't consider themselves the smartest on the planet when all Dolphins really are is marine water mammals.
Mmmmm, notice its intelligence:
Plate of dolphin sashimi. Thanks wiki.
Thanks for the “awwww” of the day! I shake my head at the attempts to analyze this or look for some bigger picture - can we just enjoy the pure cuteness?
Perhaps I should have said. “in their own way” but remember nessisity is the mother of invention. I doubt a dolphin would have much use for a wheel, or farming for that matter.
