Filled with bulls and bears…………..Here kitty kitty
Relax puddytat. If they get out of the cage with that attitude, you’re in for a tasty snack.
We cannot afford to line the bird cage with newspaper which now costs a whole lot more for a whole lot less. Nowadays, we read the “paper” online.
Totally irrelevant fact for the day — mammals evolved before dinosaurs. Some proto-mammals were as big as cattle. Even at the height of dinosaurian supremacy, fox-sized mammals were feeding on baby dinosaurs.
So hang in there folks; we come from tough stock.
Saying that birds evolved from dinosaurs is not the same thing as saying that birds evolved from large dinosaurs. I don’t know if they did or not. The most famous dinosaurs were not the ancestors of birds.
Most dinosaurs were not any larger than today’s house pets.
Do dinosaurs taste like chicken?
I used to put my cats’ litter boxes on newspaper pages with certain politicians’ pictures in them.
Prices for my local newspaper went from $35 to about $105 per three months in just over a year, and that was just for Sunday delivery. Online or nothing are the only options now.
I’ve hardly bought a paper since our budgy died.
Cat is thinking it’s ancestor was of saber tooths. Might give little dinos a run for their money, or whatever was valuable to them.
And old newspaper may become the new toilet paper.
And THIS is why cats are perpetually exasperated…
I line the bottom of my bird’s cage with an old iPad. He can read whatever paper he wants and if it gets dirty, I just hose it off.
Dog looks happy … or idiotic.
Last year in a park, I saw what looked like a small dinosaur skeleton. I thought it was probably a plastic model toy that some kid got from the Museum of Natural History. Then I realized it was a long dead bird.
Gotta love the dog in the first panel
Meanwhile, there’s a “museum” in Kentucky with exhibits that claim dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark.
I am thinking of what those birds might look like if their cage was lined with political news or, worse yet, with repeats of Buttercups twitterpated Twitter rants. One probably would be singing Forty Miles of Bad Road over and over, while swinging upside down. The other would be trying to drown itself in the water dish.
Remember birdies, L’Union fait la force!
Is it only me, or does the dog in the first panel look like the Hell Hound from “Good Omens”? You know, before Adam named him Dog. . .
You don’t want to line the birdcage with your tablet. They might find some bird porn site.
I think the cat has a good point , but the political section would be more appropriate.
We have two Parakeets…we always use a page with trump’s face on it.
Yup. Sometime knowledge is power and sometimes a little knowledge makes us stupid.
Somehow, “A pterodactyl in hand is worth two in the bush” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Can’t line it with the Sports section these days.
Lining the bird’s cage with the Business section of the paper is o.k. – even the Political & Op-Ed sections are acceptable … but never use the Comics!!
I like seeing birds in trees, not in cages.
Love the reference to the 300-lb. canary joke in the last panel.
I had a cardinal who had feather mites so bad that he was bald-headed. The lizard/dinosaur roots were so obvious and ugly.
Buy the local newspapers to support the local economy and keep the local politicians in check. I still get the local newspaper in paper. There’s a digital version, but it’s part of the paper price. You can’t get digital by itself.
Many years ago, I had a golden retriever puppy, and my method for house-training her in her room was to cover the whole floor in newspapers. As she settled into pooping and peeing in one spot, the newspapers became less and less until she was paper-trained naturally. The room was large enough that I was running out of newspaper so I made a few withdrawals from the neighborhood newspaper recycling bins. My mom’s friends thought that was funny and started giving her their newspapers to stop my life of crime.
Give the cat a tonic.
Hey, clams ’got legs, too!
Actually, anyone who’’s been bitten by a parrot knows the dinosaur jaw power is still around.
Agree with the cat – they need something worthy to poop on.
A majority of coelurosaur groups became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, including the Tyrannosauroidea, Ornithomimosauria, Oviraptorosauria, Deinonychosauria, Enantiornithes, and Hesperornithes. Only the Neornithes (modern birds) survived, and continued to diversify after the extinction of the other dinosaurs into the numerous forms found today.
Why couldn’t the cage be lined with the Op-Ed and Letters to the Editor pages, which for many newspapers in this country would be their highest and best use.
The business section is already too full of poop to be used for lining bird cages.
Extraordinary art of the dinosaur birds. Thank you for this gift.
Dinosaurs didn’t evolve into birds.
Dinosaurs are birds. https://xkcd.com/1211/
