    Brady’s story made me tear up but then the Tasmanian baby make me smile again.

    I knew the Baby Tasmanian Devil would be right at home in Cutetropolis. 😀

    Do people in Australia have any other job descriptions besides CARETaker of the Cute?

      Thanks for the baby Taz, Faye! Just adorbs! 😍

    Baby Taz acts just like my chihuahua!

    In other news, my orange tomcat reacted to the cat music sample with nothing more than a few dismissive ear twitches. Not exactly a rave review.

      I read some of the comments on that article and one person said their kitty was similarly unimpressed.

      I sent the link to my mom and she played it but she’s not sure if the cats heard it. If I remember I’ll try it out on them when I cat sit in a few weeks.

        I supported the Kickstarter, and it was interesting — he had the music played for a number of celebrity cats (Marmalade and Cole, Tardar Sauce, etc.) and more than half were entranced by it, but not all reacted to it. So it’s not surprising that your cat wasn’t interested. He had the idea that it would be good to play at shelters and vets’ offices and other places where kitties are often stressed out.

        I didn’t realize he’d been picked up by a label, though! That’s wonderful!

      It’s the same thing with catnip, some cats go crazy for it but others don’t react at all.

    Okay, I know this is grade-school level humor, but I now have a new favorite saying:
    “We are so lucky that this bitch ended up having a C-section.”

      I must share your sense of humour. For some reason that sentence is even funnier if you read it in the voice of Jesse from ‘Breaking Bad’.

    Barney’s story was wonderful. It’s so great that people loved him back for all his comforting.

    Keep coming back to watch the baby Taz. It’s like a tiny puppy when it romps after the man. Love when it boops the man’s nose.

      me too, but I find myself yelling at the screen “slow down, it’s got short legs, ya know!” 🙂

      • 6rabbits September 6, 2016 / 7:37 am

        Yeah, she’s gonna tire quickly at that pace! But then you get to pick her up and snorgle her, so it’s all good!😊

    Looney Tunes created the Tasmanian Devil from a crossword clue…one of the animators asked “What in Tasmania is a Tasmanian Devil?” They made up the character sight unseen and gave Bugs Bunny the ‘what in Tasmania…’ line.

    The things you learn as a failed college film student. *shakes head*
