Proof that Animals are Good-Natured

There are real costume contests for pets, but there really aren't cat piano contests.  That's because that's not how cats roll.  There is no way to make them practice and if you don't practice, how are you going to be in a competition?

I was looking for some fun pictures and information on animal competitions to share with you.  I got the idea from a couple videos I saw.  One was of rabbits and one of horses (more on that in a minute).  Um.  I don’t even know what to say.  I am just going to let you thank me right now for only showing you the rabbit and horse videos.  Some of the stuff I came across is stunning.  There is something wrong with people.  And, let me just tell you, if animals weren’t good-natured, there would be a lot bitten, mauled, and trampled people.

These different competitions ranged from fun-sounding (dog sledding/dog scootering) to innocuous, if slightly strange (worm charming, yes that’s a thing), to downright creepy (dressing up dead possums,no, I ‘m not kidding).

I chose to leave you with the visuals of the Rabbit Jumping because I’m impressed they could get the rabbits to cooperate and the Hip Hop Dressage.  The latter is a part of a horse show.  It was extremely cool and made me laugh.  I kind of thought the horse and rider should have been more urban looking and less English Countryside, but I think that might have been part of what made it so funny.

So, click below to enjoy the two videos and remember to be thankful that animals are such good sports.
