I had a little trouble imbedding the video, so here is a screen shot of sleeping kittens.

Remember Puppy Cam? Now you can watch a live stream of kittens! (On your lunch break, of course). And what’s better than live footage of kittens? Live footage of rescue kittens! That’s right, the kittens in the video are available for adoption through Independent Animal Rescue in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, NC area.

The perfect pet?

Have you ever imagined the “perfect” pet? British scientists have created a computer simulation of the animal (named Max by the scientists) based on survey responses of 2,000 animal lovers in the U.K. asked to list ideal pet traits. Behavioral characteristics of the perfect four-footed specimen include high energy levels, a love for daily walks, and a proneness to sleep approximately nine hours and 27 minutes a day. As for appearance, you’d best see for yourself. But with the ears of a rabbit, face of a cat, body of a Golden Retriever, and tail of a horse, let’s just say he may be theoretically perfect, but isn’t going to win any beauty contests anytime soon.

On Sept. 14, Martha Speaks will premier it’s second season.

Season Two continues with advocating dog care.  Martha, the star of the show, is a beloved family dog, whose appetite for alphabet soup gives her the power of human speech.

The show is geared for kids ages 4 to 7 years to help increase oral vocabulary.  Each episode consists of two 11-minute stories that showcase Martha’s linguistic abilities and hilarious consequences.

In February 2010, the show will celebrate President’s Day with a special two-part White House episode that has Martha taking calls from the President and proving that Portuguese Water Dogs don’t have all the fun.

Make sure not to miss out on Martha’s adventures, coming this fall!
