I don’t know much about this video except that it was sent by reader Lauren, and shows a cat and a lynx as friends. in a zoo. The YouTube caption says this (readers who read Russian: is the caption the same?):
I hope the lynx is well fed. . .
Lovestruck lynx #2: its inamorata is a deer! The YouTube notes:
Meet Amira, our white-tailed deer, and Malyshka, our Siberian lynx. Although not raised together, they have visited each other frequently, since Amira runs free on the St. Augustine Wild Reserve grounds in Florida. Every time we take Malyshka out for a walk, this unlikely pair greet each other with loving licks. Of course Malyshka is always on a secure leash just in case, since she does have claws and sharp teeth, and her normal prey in the wild would be a cousin of Amira!
And here, from the Guardian, we have another cat-saves-owner from fire story. Here’s a video I found showing a report how a cat in Melbourne, Australia (home of Felix and his staff Russell and Jenny Blackford) supposedly saved its owner’s life.
How many of you think that Sally the Cat really was trying to save her owner from the fire, as opposed to simply being freaked out and running to her staff?
Finally, one of my friends found this online, and sent me the picture. It is a magnetized cat that is supposed to hold paper clips, keeping your desk tidy. Although I eschew paper clips in general, preferring staples, I knew instantly that I had to have it.

But I did find it on Amazon, where you can get the felid for $10.82. Wouldn’t this make a great holiday gift for your ailurophilic friends? And it works, too—here’s a demonstration on my desk:
