Cards that meow

The Director of Input purchased a greeting card with a chip that sang a Christmas ditty. She hypothesized that the study subjects at the Institute would pay no attention to the card. She opened it in the Institute office and this video documents the results of the experiment:

Test results:  Velvet attacked the card in a frenzy of vicious activity which proves that kitty cats do respond to meows from cards. In fact, the director sustained massive injuries while rescuing the card from flying claws. Actually, she hardly felt the scratches which look ghastly but are healing quickly. But feel free to send a get-well card to the Institute with a nice donation tucked inside for medical expenses.

Zippy conferring with Big Fishy

Zippy is best friends with Big Fishy. They are often observed communicating in the evening.

Zippy is intensely interested in Big Fishy who always swims to where she is perched. I will try to get a picture of them “kissing” for you but this time it happened before I was ready.

Here is the scene from the other side of the aquarium. Eight-year-old Big Fishy is nearly 10 inches long! We at the Institute expect him to live a full forty years and entertain a series of study subjects such as Zippy.
