Mirror, Mirror

5 Mar

Time for a daily dose of cute!


Cat handlers at the Tampa Big Cat Rescue¬†created this cute video showing how different cats react to seeing their reflection in the mirror, because honestly, isn’t that what you would do if you worked at a big cat rescue? Some of the reactions are pretty priceless. It goes on to prove my hypothesis that white tigers are total divas, and male lions adorably insecure.
I’ve tried doing my own version of this in the lab, by showing petri dishes of bacteria their reflection in the mirror. They just sat there staring back at me, probably in awe of their own awesomeness. (I’m assuming. It’s hard to know what bacteria are thinking about).

If you can’t get enough of mind-blowing cuteness that is cats in mirrors, I highly recommend watching this video. It would reduce even the most cynical person into a fit of bubbly giggles.
