When I went to the bathroom a few minutes ago, I was surprised to see that a couple of the vanity drawers were partly open. I tried to close them, but they bounced back. Something stuck inside?

Then an unearthly yowl of despair and misery echoed through the bathroom. I looked around and saw no cats. I spun in a circle, searching for unhappy felines in the shower, behind the toilet, in the greenhouse window. Nothing.

Then I realized the sound was coming from inside the bathroom vanity.

Yes, Ivan the Scarable had opened the drawers, climbed in, slipped or jumped behind the drawers, and got stuck there.

No matter how I tugged or lifted, the drawers wouldn't come out of the vanity. Nor would he come out.

Finally I had to go wake the Kitty Mommy herself, [personal profile] housepet, who coaxed him out. He trusts her. She told me Bear had been waking her at half-hour intervals since 1:30 this morning. I bet he knew Ivan was trapped and was trying his best Lassie imitation.

What bizarre interspecies encounters have you had lately?

Poor Ivan.

Bean keeps standing in the bath yeeking. I have no idea whether she means 'Hey, look at me, I'm in the bath!' or 'Help, help, I'm in the bath and I've forgotten how to get out!'

One of our peacocks and one of our hens are carrying on a weird interspecies romance.

I'm not quite sure how that happened, given that peacocks are monogamous with a long courtship, and in chickens the biggest meanest rooster takes all the hens he can with little fanfare. (We don't have a rooster.) How did Moustache the Chicken even figure out the peacock was courting her when he kept presenting her with carefully chosen straws, or that courting was a thing? They cuddle together in dust baths, preen each other, and roost together, commit interspecies hanky-panky, and otherwise act like a pair of peacocks. She apparently thinks her eggs are fertile and gets mad about me taking them.

Cute, but weird.

This wasn't bizarre, but it was a little startling.

Last Wednesday I was gardening, which at the moment involves a lot of moving of blocks and stacking them into walls for new beds, and moving dirt and compost into new beds.

I turned a corner and there, beside raised beds #3 was a hawk standing on the mulch on a dove, its claws sunk in. We looked at each other. It had clearly been plucking it. I nodded to it, and it stared at me. And then I left it to it.

No matter how many times he gets shouted at for doing so, Telstar can't resist getting into whatever containment object Humuhumu has recently vacated (cot, changing mat, bathtub, car seat).
