I guess this is the best place for this one- My kitten has been increasing his efforts of late to emulate my behavior as much as he possibly can. I sit down, he sits down. I eat, he eats. I go to bed, he crashes out right next to me until I get up. I say hello, he seriously seems to make an effort to say it back. That much is fairly cute, but nothing to write home about.

Where it starts to get kinda weird is, when he notices his claws are getting long, rather than looking for a place to sharpen them, he's started doing what I do- biting them down. Then last night, with absolutely no training attempts, prompting, or anything else like that, apparently he spontaneously decided it was time to give up on that nasty cat box, do the civilized thing, and start using the toilet.

Seriously, I've heard of people toilet training their cats but this was 100% his own initiative here.

When they grow up, one of them is going to have to fight a bear across a waterfall to save the other's life.

And then Disney will make a movie out of them.

This is why I'm not so scared of spiders as I usually am.

There are lots of corgi mixes out there. And lots of 100% corgis aren't red, though your description doesn't sound like any of the other options. The two closest out there are brindle, which is a base color of red or black with dark "striping" on top of that, and blue merle, which looks like a grey coat with black spots. Here's a very red brindle corgi:



And here's a blue merle:



My corgi, cc, is a much darker brindle, though her base color is also red.

Double post because the Party Spider from the random image thread needs to be here:



Also I found the original video (fantastic footage, terrible narration/pacing.)

But then there's Part 2. TOO SILLY.

The good stuff in that video starts at about 2m40s. The really good stuff starts at 3m00s.

Some freezing stray cat warmed up by napping on my shoe, about a year ago.

Yes, of course. It's the start of a beautiful everlasting friendship.

No, it's not, I eventually had to go and I felt horrible. But it's a very memorable and indescribable 30-minute.
