When puppies meet a robot they want to be friends. Contrast that to Maya the cat's more cautious approach. But a mess of kittens vs. BB-8 will not end well. Bonus: various pets vs. various machines. Extra bonus: okay, it's just an excuse to post Cat vs Printer - The Translation again. (h/t Miss Cellania)

ALL GOOD STUFF. "Cat vs. Printer - The Translation" sure takes me back.

I love the robo raptor. Bought one for my niece. She's now outgrown it but it gets trotted out everytime my nephews come to visit. Here's a meeting of the minds. Wish I had taken video as there was a long, if one-sided, conversation involved.

Puppies are all "c'mon buddy, another step, that's great, you got it!"

Kitty went from "WTF terrible monster?" to "dude, you dead?" at around 1:55 and on to total flirting. Ah, cats.

Such good viewing, thanks Johnny Wallflower!

It would be stressful and bad for the involved animals, I imagine, but the cute kittens with the cute snake would be an interesting scene.

Thanks for the laughs.
This is why we love our pets!
(I needed the reminder. It isn’t even noon here yet and one of my dogs has me so angry I want to sell him to the glue factory.)

Well, that was irresponsible. Now if those puppies or that cat ever meet a real dinosaur, they're going to think "Friend!" instead of running away. Animals should have a healthy fear of dinosaurs. Mark my words: this will end in tears.

What does it say about me that I felt sad for the robot? "Come back, kitty! I just want to be pals! Don't run away... noooo!"
