What is interesting is that the photo is of a male and female.  Anyway, another fact about monogamy and birds is that birds will sometimes sneak off and cheat on each other, but return to continue the relationship with their mate.  The nestlings are not always 100% the offspring of her mate.  So in other words, they are loyal to preserving the relationship, but enjoy some sexual activity on the side.

Some gay birds have lifelong monogamous relationships.

"the same-sex couples showed the same behaviour to each other as opposite-sex couples did, including nesting together, singing to each other, perching side by side and greeting each other."

No word on whether one bird pressured the other to do a complete nest remodel, unlike a certain gay homo sapiens I could mention.

I'm so tired of having a bogeyman around every corner. She doesn't even have the integrity to stand up for her own, openly stated views.

 Somebody needs an appointment with Marcus Bachmann!

 

What is it about these homophobic republican politicians?

Are we still talking about poop?  AWESOME!

When I was in college I had a bobcat who peed and pooped in the toilet.  She just took it up on her own.  Unfortunately, she never flushed.

This is such a LGBT topic :-)  well, ok.  

 

I had to create a special litter box entrance so the dogs couldn't get into it for the "special treats" there.  Every time I turned around, one of them had his head in the opening, wagging his tail.  In their case, it wasn't fresh clean water they were after.  I think Dallas is pretty much on target.  Cats might be more fastidious.  

 

It's possible that humans have less effective immune systems and need more sanitation than out 4-legged friends need.  On the other hand, there is a hypothesis that allergies, eczema, ulcerative colitis, autism, diabetes, and other conditions might be caused by / made more likely by an excessively clean society.  It's "The hygiene hypothesis".   That doesn't mean we should be drinking cholera-infested water - a very bad idea - or eating salads at Sizzler - but maybe there is too much fastidiousness out there.  

 

Still, I never let the dogs kiss me, after seeing what they get into.  Yuck.

My cat used to be a toilet drinker, too, but now he is elderly and nearly blind.  We had a little fountain we turned over to him and he is quite content to drink from it.  I think they like the fresh taste of the water.  Water sitting in a bowl gets stale after awhile, but water aerated by the fountain pump stays fresher.  No more worries he will fall in the toilet and drown.

The time to clean baby butts is now!  Glad yall liked the video.  Biped, I am a veterinarian and my cats drink toilet water all the time.  I don't know what the draw is, but they love it.  Maybe we don't know what we are missing...

Loved the parody of the NOM ad.  Thanks, Dr. Kellie.
Comment by Sentient Biped on August 12, 2011 at 4:44pm
Dr. Kellie, that's a very funny ad. "The time to fight for prejudice is now!" Should be the republican motto now. Along with "The time to stop affordable health care is now!" and "The time to bankrupt America is now!".
