The Most Ridiculous Cat Chase | Pet Friendly Episode 3: Tonya | Refinery29


Come here kitty. Who’s a good kitty? You wanna come to my house? Look at this house, we have a good home. You’re making a fool out of yourself, Skip. Cat’s don’t wanna have anything to do with humans. Come on. Come into my house. You need to engage your core. So close. I got it. I got her, I got her! Him? Her! She’s filthy. You’re filthy. Where did you find her? She found us, actually. Practically jumped in my arms. That’s a interesting use of the word, “Practically.” She doesn’t have a chip or a tag on her. You’re just jealous that Tonya likes me better. Did you just call it Tonya? She’s too scrappy to be a Nancy. We want to adopt her. What? Well, if you do, I encourage Tonya to be an indoor cat. There’s a lot of outdoor dangers in L.A. Cars, coyotes, those little rent-a-scooter things. They’re everywhere, they’re super dangerous, but they’re fun. You’re enabling. (cat purring) See, Tonya likes you! Just mind your knees. She gets it. I get it. Come on. Fine, but I’m not walking him. I’m gonna get you guys this GPS collar, just goes around her neck, tracks her. I’ll be right back. We get a kitty. Never pictured you as an old cat lady, Skip. Did you give that dinner party any more thought? Do people have to be involved? Stop being such a sociopath, even serial killers have dinner parties now and then. That’s what made them wanna start killing people. Tonya talk some sense into… Tonya? Tonya? No! No! No! No! No! No! Oh no. Tonya! I’m so sorry, Skip! Dr. Sally, what do we do? What do we do? Did you try the Whistle? Whistle? (Whistling) Please, stop guys, I meant the Whistle app. It’s the GPS around Tonya’s collar. Come on guys, we talked about that. Genius. Brilliant! Well, six years of cat college, what can I say? Oh, okay, bye. We have a signal. We’ve got a signal. Come on. Let’s go. (cat meowing) (bird chirping) Percy, look, your playmate is here. (bird squawking) Lenny, put down the map! Oh, more visitors. Oh, okay. Oh, the dance of life. The only thing scarier than a cat lady is a bird lady. Shh! Okay, I think she’s here. Hello. Hi. We’re your neighbors. I’m Skip, this is my husband, Lenny. We’re looking for our cat, Tonya. Show her the picture. Oh. Oh, you mean, Oxana? What’re the odds? We do yoga together. Do you? Oh you just missed her. She’s on the move! Do us a favor, give her a card. If she comes back, call us. Here you go. I design air filtration systems. Namaste. You’re killing it. Cute new collar. Wow! Oh, perfect timing kitty. You are crushing the catwalk, baby. Right here, Oh, right there. Hold it. Beautiful! Hold it. Okay, bye kitty. Come on! Come on! What up little mama? I was wondering when you we gonna come say hi. I missed you. There she is. Have you seen our cat? Little, four legs. Check this out I got a toy for you. Taupe? Gorgeous cat. Just went that way. This way? Thanks. Excuse me? Excuse me? Hello. Hello. We are looking for our cat, Tonya. The GPS said she’s here. Okay, GPS didn’t say there’d be a wall here. Was here. I love that cat, he’s a great tenor. Tonya’s a female. Honestly, it never came up. Skip? We’re getting closer! Skip! It stopped, stopped. Oh! Yes, Dr. Sally? Come on, guys. You’re gonna leave me hanging. Did you find her? Tonya’s home. Our cat came home. She’s safe! Back to work! You know Lenny, she’s used to a bit more stimulation. You think she likes those crazy people, huh? Some of us actually enjoy being around people. A cat might live with you, you might give her shelter, feed her, but does a cat really belong to anyone? Are you having a senior moment? I’m saying we shouldn’t keep Tonya from her friends. Sally said all kitties should be indoor kitties. We chipped her, we GPSed her. Is that a verb? She’s our cat, Lenny. I know we can’t let Tonya roam, but that’s not the only way for a cat to socialize. Thank you for coming. So how did you meet Tonya? In this lifetime? (cat meowing) I’m gonna go see if they have Rosé. Oh my baby. Hi, I’m Sally. Hi, I’m Flora. Nice to meet you. What do you do? I’m a vet. Thank you for your service. You’re welcome. Tonya’s a real blessing, isn’t she? Who? The cat. Funny, I never imagined you as an old cat lady either. You know what they say? We don’t rescue them, they rescue us. I like that. Who says that? Everybody, it’s everywhere. Oh. Bumper stickers, social media. Oh. Long silence. Oh, I was enjoying it. Okay. We were having a moment. Oh.

  21. My cat Nandi seemed to subscribe to Buddhist principles. I was cleaning out my hamster cage one day when the hamster escaped her ball. You can imagine my panic thinking my hamster is dead. I find them in the kitchen Nandi had wrapped her tail protectively around my hamster and was stroking her with the pads of her paws. Nandi also alerted me to a bird down my chimney which I was able to free. She literally never harmed anything. A mouse broke into my kitchen and sat having a wash in Nandi's dinner bowl which is pretty provocative for a mouse and she just sat and purred at it! By then I owned a second cat who though initially perplexed by the mouse in the dinner bowl on top of a pile of biscuits (you really couldn't make this stuff up it's so ridiculous) decided to chase it so I had to rescue the mouse and rehome it back outside safely away from predators. It was then that I discovered why my cats had appeared to be begging for more food for days. The mouse had been in my kitchen cupboard and destroyed all the dried goods. It even took teabags, it left the tea behind but took the bags!

  22. My old Lily (RIP) was born in my parents’ garage the night we found her mom abandoned in a parking lot at the end of summer. We found homes for Mom and her two sibling and I kept Lily. She had 18 great years of love and purrs.

  30. Wah, hello Thanks HALagain love & help animals thanks for showing us another great show. ANIMALS DONT HAVE FEELINGS AND THEY DO NOT LOVE PEOPLE? %1000. £DONATION TO YOU!! THANKYOU SO MUCH YOUR AMAZING ! For the people with a BRAIN THAT CARE I'll tell you our Wildlife didn’t have an easy go of it in 2018. We lost the LAST male northern white rhino, the vaquita porpoise continued its slide toward extinction, poachers kept targeting pangolins and other rare creatures, and through it all the Trump administration kept trying to whittle away at key protections for endangered species. So with that rough bit of recent history, what does 2019 hold? Well, in most cases it won’t be pretty. There will be more blood, more habitat loss, more legislative attacks and more extinctions Here are some big issues that experts say we should be watching in 2019: Humanity’s ongoing destruction of wildlife will lead to a shrinking of nature, with the average body size of animals falling by a quarter, a study predicts. The researchers estimate that more than 1,000 larger species of mammals and birds will go extinct in the next century, from rhinos to eagles. They say this could lead to the collapse of ecosystems that humans rely on for food and clean water. Humans have wiped out most large creatures from all inhabited continents apart from Africa over the last 125,000 years. This annihilation will accelerate rapidly in the coming years, according to the research The future extinctions can be avoided if radical action is taken to protect wildlife and restore habitats, and the scientists say the new work can help focus efforts on key species. Animal populations have FALLEN BY 60% since 1970, suggesting a SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION of life on Earth is under way caused by the razing of wild areas, hunting and intensive farming. Scientists JUST SAID that human society was in danger from the decline of the Earth’s natural life-support systems, with half of natural ecosystems now destroyed and a total of a million species at risk of extinction! “It is worrying that we are losing these big species when *we don’t know their full role,” said Robert Cooke, at the University of Southampton, who led the new research. “Without them, things could begin to degrade quite quickly. Ecosystems could start to collapse and become not what we need to survive.” Climate Chaos Of course, climate change will continue to threaten species around the world in 2019. “The impacts of climate change aren’t showing signs of slowing, and this administration refuses to recognize it,” says Charise Johnson of the Union of Concerned Scientists. “Water temperatures are rising, increased flooding, deforestation, fires, storms—these are all things that affect a species’ existence.” And new threats continue to emerge. “There’s been a lot of discussion about how global climate change affects ocean acidification, and now there’s emerging evidence that the even greater threat is reduced oxygen levels,” says noted conservationist William Laurance of James Cook University. A study published last month found that ocean deoxygenation could have a major impact on zooplankton, one of the building blocks for the ocean food web. Deoxygenation also causes increased algal growth, like the red tides that choked the coasts of Florida this past year and killed hundreds of manatees and tens of thousands of fish “Changes in ocean composition will be a large-scale driver of mortality,” Laurance says. “Some people are calling this ‘the great dying.’ ” A related issue in the Arctic also appears to be another emerging threat. According to the just-released “Horizon Scan of Emerging Issues for Global Conservation in 2019” (the tenth annual edition of this study), climate-change induced release of carbon from polar ice will further worsen global warming, while the release of mercury from thawing permafrost will create a toxic threat for animals, plants and soil. Meanwhile, on top of the obvious weather-related changes, climate change could create an additional unexpected threat to some species: wildlife trafficking. “Some species will undoubtedly decline as a result of climate change, making them rarer and thus potentially even more desirable by those who trade in them,” explains Richard Thomas, global communications coordinator for TRAFFIC, the anti-wildlife-trafficking organization. “Addressing wildlife trade issues and promoting sustainable harvesting are likely to become more important than ever,” he says. Politics in the Trump Era—and Beyond Among the greatest threats to wildlife are the Trump administration and similar politicians around the world, such as Brazil’s new far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, who took office last week and immediately moved to undermine indigenous rights in his country. “The new president in Brazil could unravel 50 years of progress for species, tropical forests and indigenous people,” says Lindsay Renick Mayer, associate director of communications for Global Wildlife Conservation. That could be devastating to one of the world’s most biodiverse regions on the planet, which is often referred to as the “lungs of the Earth.” Mayer adds that the recent election in Madagascar could be just as bad. Former president Andry Rajoelina, whose previous tenure was marked by a dramatic increase in illegal logging, deforestation and biodiversity loss, was reelected last month, although as of press time the election remains mired in protests and accusations of fraud. “The risk of losing the amazing biodiversity of Madagascar is always a big story and it could get worse now,” Mayer says. Getting back to the Trump administration, many experts worried about how things will play out for this country’s wildlife in the year ahead. Roads But outside of Washington, things are speeding up. New road and infrastructure projects, many backed by Chinese investment, are currently being carved into critical habitats in Indonesia, Africa, the Amazon and other regions. Much of this stems from China’s Belt and Road Initiative, a development strategy to build extractive industries in 70 nations around the globe along with overland roads, ports, railways and pipelines to exploit them. “We’re experiencing an avalanche of new infrastructure projects,” says Laurance, who points out that the Initiative has at least 7,000 developments planned or underway. One of the most notorious projects is a gigantic hydroelectric dam that could wipe out Tapanuli orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis) in Sumatra. Meanwhile, a similar—if not even more extensive—proliferation of illegal roads is being constructed around the world by loggers, miners, poachers and other extractive industries. These activities threaten everything from elephants and tigers to insects and rare plants. A Host of Other Issues Here are a few more factors predicted to play a big role in 2019. First, we continue to learn more about how plastic waste affects wildlife and the environment. Most recently, a study found that 100 percent of sea turtles had plastic or microplastics in their digestive systems. With more and more plastic being produced every day, this will be a major focus of research and conservation the coming year. Meanwhile many experts also expressed fear about emerging diseases, like those affecting bats, frogs and salamanders. Lips also noted that it’s often hard to get funding and other support for these growing problems because they’re less in the public eye. “People and the media tend to focus on the current emergencies rather than the slow, long-term problems because we are not very good at maintaining focus and attention,” she says. The threats of poaching, snaring and wildlife trafficking will also remain significant around the world, as the forests of southeast Asia and the plains of southern Africa became emptied of their animal life and as “valued” species such as tigers, rhinos and pangolins face ever-increasing pressures. The Countdown Begins The year 2019 has just barely begun, but experts warn us that the opportunity to make a difference on these issues is already running short. “I don’t want to sound too bleak, but time is literally running out for the world as we know it,” say TRAFFIC’s Thomas. “The Earth simply can’t take the punishment of relentless over-exploitation of its natural resources, poisoning of its atmosphere and pollution of its oceans. We need to put aside political differences and work together to do something about this catastrophic situation—and quickly.”*
