I don't like little children, but this is actually sweet and funny:
Cat falling in love with a baby
It only looks like that. More like a bodyguard. Potty training is something else. It was quite common in NL that child was brought into the world at home in the company of the father and cats.

Cats are causing 140 million deaths each year, and only some of their victims are furniture

https://dutchreview.com/news/cats-are-c ... furniture/

European guidelines state that countries are obliged to protect certain endangered species from predators like cats. Cats kill an estimated 140 million birds, rodents, bats, fish and reptiles each year in the Netherlands, and even though they’re highly discerning when it comes to their preferred brand of wet food, it seems cats don’t give a hoot whether the animal they’re playfully killing is endangered or not.


In our case, we live on the edge of a protected nature area.

Humans kill more protected species. And if it weren't for humans, they wouldn't be endangered in the first place.

I think in all fairness that the killings of wild animals by domestic cats should be counted under the human quota. It’s just one more way...

Idiot. It's probably a mum with some babies hiding nearby. She just wanted to chase him away and return them.

A cat comes into a cafe and orders a latte with a croissant. The waiter is in shock.

Cat: “So, can I get my order?”
Waiter: “Um...Yes... But... You are a cat...”
C: “Yes?”
W: “And you talk...”
C: “Well?”
W: “I am sorry, it’s just...I’ve never seen...”
C: “Indeed, I am here for the first time. I just had an interview nearby and decided to stop by for some coffee.”
W: “Of course, one moment...”

When the waiter returns, he finds the cat typing vigorously on a laptop.

W: “One latte with a croissant. Sorry, I’ve been thinking... My uncle works for a circus. If you are looking for a job, I am sure they’d love to have you.”
C: “Circus, hmm. With clowns?”
W: “Yes”
C: “And elephants?”
W: “Yes!”
C: “Lions?”
W: “Exactly!”
C: “And why do they need a programmer?”
