Dove ruins kitten’s nap (video)

Who hasn’t tried to take a peaceful nap, minding their own business on a nice big comfortable piece of newspaper, when some damn dove wants to just peck at your ear over and over and over again.

I love this. I especially love that the kitten is aware of what’s going on, and totally accepts it, lovingly.

    amazing and courageous little creatures, aren’t they all.

  • ” i will never screw with an otter, although i wouldn’t have anyway.” – that made me laugh

  • just sounds like a typical “guy” to me…

  • milli2

    My cats do that to me every morning.

  • Krusher

    That is a very noisy household.

  • cole3244

    boy, many sensitive homo sapiens got their feathers ruffled by my comment, my bad & too bad, deal with the not so kind truth.

  • Oh I love that croc video – was afraid we were going to see carnage ;)

  • UncleBucky

    “dumb as a wheel of cheese” hahahahahaah, you’re right!

  • UncleBucky

    I used to have ring necked doves. That is EXACTLY the mating call the boy makes. And he makes it to a cat, talk about love getting you in biiiig trouble! It’s a lovely sound to hear outside, too, amidst other birds, including the mourning doves. Big problem, though, is that ring-necked doves are an invasive species. But could they take the niche of passenger “pigeons”?

  • FatRat

    Cool video. Team play wins the day.

    As a species, we are the only one that developed civilization, spoken language, tools, and high technology. Maybe you’d like to trade those for a less corrupt set of morals and ethics; I think most folks would demur.

    Maybe he should have tried a little Marvin Gaye…

    No, there’s bunches of species that fight over territory. Check out ants, swans, lions, hyenas, etc. Also check out how the new male lion in a pride treats the cubs sired by his predecessor.

    There’s little that’s unique about humans…

    I grew up on a farm, and the barns had mice. My parents kept cats to alleviate that problem. Well fed cats were great hunters. I believe it was sport for them. The ones who were family favorites brought their catch to us. They had no intention of eating their prey.

  • cole3244

    i did say generally if you noticed, the croc was hunting for food i believe, i agree cats hunt out of instinct which also makes them different from us, as a species we are the most corrupt morally and ethically and as a human i am not afraid to point this out, no home field advantage with me.
    great video, thanks, i will never screw with an otter, although i wouldn’t have anyway.

  • perljammer

    Apparently you’re not familiar with the origin of the term, “pecking order”.

  • OtterQueen

    I’ve seen cats kill for sport. And I don’t know, but this crocodile looks pretty pissed!

  • cole3244

    generally we are the only species that the first response when annoyed or aggravated is to lash out & kill, other species generally kill out of necessity not emotion or anger, and they say we are intelligent, maybe so but not smart.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    It seems fair. Cats don’t believe in letting sleeping dogs (and sleeping people) lie.

  • Naja pallida

    It’s a display of attempted superiority, not necessarily mating. Having kept doves for many years, he’s not confused; doves are just dumb as a wheel of cheese. They will attempt to do their display to anything, or nothing at all. Any time, for any or no reason. :)

  • EdA

    That pigeon lasted over a minute longer than it had any right to expect!

  • LOL sounds like that poor baby penguin I posted about a few weeks ago. Not giggling, just horny!

  • MonkeyBoy

    That is a confused male dove who is doing his horny dance and song.
