There are, I’ve discovered, a number of YouTube channels that produce videos for dogs and cats to watch. And yes, some of them do watch. This channel just happened to be the first one I stumbled across today and, curious, I cast it to my big screen. The sounds alone created a soothing outdoor ambience, but all those critters moving around definitely caught the eye of my cat Rowdy. He’d watch from a distance, creep up close to the screen, watch from there, try vainly to catch a critter, and then leave for a few minutes. But he kept coming back, as if to make sure everything was as he left it. Canine Charlie, on the other hand, remained completely oblivious. I guess you can’t please everybody.
Appearing today were ground squirrels (with the striped faces), chipmunks (the chubby ones), Clark’s nutcrackers (big gray bird with black wings), chickadees (little black-capped birds), flashes of other small birds, and a stuffed bunny dressed in purple. Soundtrack provided by a host of species.
