First they stand upright, then they grow opposable thumbs, and before you know it they are smoking and drinking

I used to have a cat who would stand at my front door like this—for hours—checking out what was going on in the neighborhood. She couldn’t balance this well; she needed to lean her front paws on the bottom of the storm door window, but you couldn’t tell from behind. She looked oddly human. Or maybe alien. And like she forgot her pants.

Meanwhile, The Lounging Party can barely rouse themselves from sleeping to do anything more strenuous than take a nap.

Miss you Casper…

Yes Sherri! A monocle! And maybe a small cane, although then he might start to look too much like Mr. Peanut...

None of them are normal, but only some of them are caught on video!

Glad to see you post again!

Awe! Thanks for sharing. The cat reminds me of one of my cats that use to sit in the bath tub like a human with her hind feet straight out and her front paws at her side.
