It is unambiguous.

It flows from large units to small.

Of course my four kitties are infinitely superior. But it is good to see they haven't broken the competing cats so badly that the dear little things still try to compare to my gold standard Uber cats. We find it adorable and amusing and you have our permission to continue as we limit our photo ops to paying gigs .

21. There's a story behind the photo of the wolf and the dog...

... and best of all it's a sweet one.

How a Wolf Named Romeo Won Hearts in an Alaska Suburb
------------------------------------------------------------------

By Simon Worrall, National Geographic

...

"The amazing thing about this animal was how relatively relaxed and tolerant he was. Thatís not out of the question for wolves. Certain wolves are like dogs, and they all have different personalities. Some are more cautious or fearful than others. But this wolf was downright relaxed and tolerant from the start, as if he had dropped out of the sky like a unicorn."

What a wonderful animal. I've loved wolves since I was a kid, and this one was delightfully special. You don't appreciate how big they are until you see them with a large dog.

49. Hey its a whole book...

But the end is sad. Even though he lived longer than a wolf usually does in the wild, he was killed by a couple of nutjobs. One of them was fleeing child molestation charges.
But over all the book was amazing.
Also if you look at wolf picture books and calendars, you'll see his face pop up many times.

It was impossible when reading the book not to cheer for the whale!
That same type of cowardice is why there are republicans.

I used to have a cat that was the sweetest cat out there, but every so often she'd look at me in a certain way, and I'd know she was thinking, "Oh, if only you were smaller. Then I could hunt you and kill you." Deep inside her hunter soul still lived.

Always smiling when I see your cats on their backs, stretching. Normally we think of cats as curling on their stomachs.

Loved the last one.

What is this bird?



Thanks you, and good night. What a nice way to end the day

I googled long tailed birds and it is a Spatuletail Hummingbird, found in a remote area of Peru. I really love birds and enjoy finding out what the unusual ones could possibly be.

38. My mother was a bird lover, always had feeders - and books - so I did learn from her

And I also love fuschias - and when I've had one hanging outside, they especially attract hummingbirds! I love watching them, they are the most fascinating and amazing little things!

45. Thanks for that info

What an amazing bird!
"Spatuletail Hummingbird".
I've never seen such a long "spatula-like" tail on any bird before.
Hummingbirds are amazing birds.
I've read that some species flap their wings at hundreds of times per second, while most flap their wings at a mere 80 times per second (Incredible!)
Also, hummingbirds have a long tongue which they use to lick their food at up to
13 licks per second.
Also, being very territorial, they often chase away much larger birds such as hawks from their territory.
They live about 4 years.
(I've got to get a hummingbird feeder)

You've outdone yourself this week.

I especially loved:

- Totally cute brown kitten
- Lizard climbing up plant

And the last 8 photos...all of them
especially the black wolf & dog, baby koala, & baby platypus drinking milk


Your Sunday LOLCats are a weekly antidote to what's going on in Washington, D.C.

Thanks again & have a wonderful week!
