This Week in Cats: November 20, 2016

Unlikely Animal Friends is the most unchallenging and most adorable thing I’ve ever watched. It’s a National Geographic Channel documentary about—you guessed it—animals who make friends with other, unlikely animals. Like a puppy and a cheetah. Or a cat who goes rock climbing with his human. Or a bird and a cat.

Six episodes are available streaming on Netflix. Six perfect, adorable episodes. Or watch the clip below for a clip about a raccoon who lives with a family of humans and dogs. It’s toilet-trained. Seriously.


This Week in Cats is a weekly (more or less) post about all things cat-related. The nature of what “related” means in this context will be determined by Sam T. Cat and his plucky sidekick, Josie Kafka. The nature of what “cat” means is unknowable to human brains; all we can do is read, hope for enlightenment, and provide more boxes for them to play with.

I love this show. It is beyond adorable. A couple of times, it's brought me to tears.

My grandmother had a pet raccoon named Sally when I was a little girl. She didn't keep it in the house, though. Sally had a doghouse of her own; my grandmother lived in the country. And Sally loved peanut brittle, which probably wasn't good for her.

My grandkids and I will now watch this. Have you also seen "72 of the cutest animals" and "72 of the most dangerous animals"? After watching the last one everyone in my family refuses to visit Australia. My aunt also had a pet racoon and a pet skunk (scent glands removed). She was a very interesting person.
