Kids watch an amazing amount of television. I've already blogged about Milo and Otis' favorite morning program. But Otis supplements his window viewing with an infrequent diet of evening television broadcasts:
"Oh, man, I love Animal Planet!"Just last night, while Mrs. Brainwise was winding down with a little ER for her own R&R, a whole passel of kittens filled the screen for a commercial break. Otis was front and center, completely rapt in the whole thing in less than a second. Now, neither one of us knows how Otis even saw it. He wasn't even looking at the TV before the commercial came on -- in fact, he was on his way out of the room. But, bang, there he was, full attention on those kitties. He even got up on his hinds and pawed at the screen. It wasn't an attack; he just really wanted to play with those kitties that were running all around the TV commercial home. By the way, neither Mrs. Brainwise nor I know what product was being shilled. Heck, I don't even think Otis knows (or cares).
The Modulator has a compilation of today's pet posts from other bloggers. Previous Milo & Otis appearances on Prophet or Madman are indexed here ... just in case you missed one. And do keep your eyes peeled for the next installment of the Carnival of the Cats, served fresh every Sunday. This week's host is The Oubliette.
