    Now I know what to do if I ever inherit a fur coat.

    Aaaaaaaaaaand yay baby wombat!

    OMG the wombat is cute even without fur! I need one so badly.

    I refuse to believe that first photo–it must be shopped.

      The wombat video was waaaay too short!😞

      For the cat, I need an everyday object beside him for comparison. Like maybe an iPad.πŸ˜‹

        On the twitter link for the black cats, there’s one short video of a kitten just lying on its side sleeping with its little belly going up and down up and down. The video automatically replays over and over and I could just sit here and watch it all day.

          Alas, I no longer have my own black cat to appreciate – RIP Daisy – but I’ll appreciate other black cats twice as much!

        or a banana

    Having had a Maine Coon I think that cat will about triple in size when he is full-grown.

    I actually have a beaver fur coat in my car trunk. I took it from my daughter when it didn’t sell at our yard sale. No one wants real fur, it is vintage from when real fur was all the rage. I intended to make it into a cat bed for Tiger, but I never got around to it. I wonder if Grace would like it. I bet it would make fun cat toys too.

      At one point I picked up a tanned rabbit fur — can’t remember where from specifically. But it makes a fantastic cat bed liner πŸ™‚

    Official new job-we-all-want-to-add-to-our-resumes: Pinkie Wombat Oiler.

      Is he here to represent for “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink”?

          OMG, that’s my dog!!! Poor baby is a rescue (and who knows how long he was on the streets) and has really no desire to play or fetch balls. He has one squeaky toy that I can toss a few times and he’ll get it but then he is done. Gives me a look similar to this guy. But good news! We’ve had him a year and progress on just being a dog is being made – he now will bark when the doorbell rings.

            Gorgeous doggie!

          • allein 🐾 August 17, 2016 / 5:01 pm

            Aw! Pablo wasn’t much for playing with toys, either. Don’t know why. He would always rather snuggle in a lap or bask in a sunbeam. Occasionally he would wrestle with a hand.

            • AJ August 17, 2016 / 6:46 pm

              Dobby does the exact same things as yours!! Loves the sun, check. Snuggle with the human, check. Play smack my hand, check. I think dogs like them are what I call cat-dogs. Looks like a dog but most behavior is more like a cat. My niece says to look for a zipper ’cause he’s wearing a dog suit.

              • allein 🐾 August 17, 2016 / 7:29 pm

                Well, he was half the size of the cats, so…

    Is that lady oiling that baby wombat? Is that an actual job ❓
    I want to be a baby wombat oiler woman❗️ I’ll bring my own oil ‼️

  7. Dana August 17, 2016 / 3:24 pm

    That’s not a tail. That’s a Swiffer.

    • 6rabbits August 17, 2016 / 3:33 pm


    • debg August 17, 2016 / 4:19 pm

      And I could use a cat like this for everyday dusting.

  8. Faye August 17, 2016 / 4:58 pm

    I could look at the pinky wombatses all day. It must feel so smooth. Newer than new.

    A cat who sweeps up after itself. How considerate.

    I am so sure that whale is having fun with those people. Close though.

    Note that in the last photo the Maine Coon has a separate shelf just for his tail.
