Doesn't work with LouLou. She tries to bite the hand of whomever is grabbing her.

LouLou may be part Tasmanian Devil.

perhaps loulou was manufactured without the kitteh kill switch

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

The knack is to grab the cat by the loose skin between the should blades. They go completely limp. It's a reflex left over from kitten hood when their mothers would carry them that way. It doesn't hurt because there are no nerve endings there which is also the reason you give them ip shots there.

That's the cat equivalent to the vulcan death grip.

Having never heard of or seen this behavior before, I'm not sure if all eagles have it within their repertoire, or if this eagle simply learned what he had to do to get the meat to shore as he was puzzling out the problem. That kind of problem-solving behavior would be even more cool as shit.

We sometimes flyfish at a spot in the Rideau River where there are swans. They have at times come very close to us, I assume because they are used to people feeding them. Even when they are being docile this is a concern because they are huge and can knock you over.

It turns out that the Iceman, that fellow found in the Italian Alps after 5300 years of mummification, had heart disease & Lyme disease and was lactose intolerant. Some things never change.
