Animals being conspicuously indifferent to cricket
“Please see evidence of the indifference shown by my two cats (Jaffa on left, Seamus the Celtic Warrior on right) to cricket, but also more specifically your website.
“I left it on for a bit and for a while nothing happened. However, eventually Jaffa (through some careful standing on the screen) did show some interest in finding out what sport360.com have to offer before deciding that licking Seamus was a better way to spend time.
“Shortly after this they jumped down and went to eat.”

Tom sent us a photo of a cat named The Perundi who he was temporarily looking after over the festive period.
“Here you can see the cat showing significantly more attention to the radiator than to a nearby letter, signed by no less a man than the late, great Sir Don Bradman.”
But that’s not all.
“Out of shot, Sky are showing David Warner carving yet another medium-paced long-hop over gully for four.”
Tom also highlights a clear difference between man and cat.
“I considered taking another, less awkward, shot, but got distracted by the cricket.”
The Perundi would NEVER be guilty of that.11 Appeals
Michael sent us this picture, the title above and nothing else:
Our unquenchable thirst for information led us to ask whether Laszlo was named after a fictional character mentioned by Troy McClure in a Simpson’s episode.
“He’s indirectly named after the cinematographer, but mostly I just liked the name Laszlo. He usually gets on the desk to remind me that he hasn’t been fed for at least several minutes. If the location matters, we’re in Wellington, New Zealand.”
We were completely satisfied with this reply and therefore posed no further questions.7 Appeals
In the highly unlikely event that we’ve picked up a new reader in the last year, we should say that we have a feature on this website entitled animals being conspicuously indifferent to cricket.
Lemon Bella’s cats, StraussCat and Meowcus Trescattick, have appeared on several occasions and we’re honoured to be able to present their verdict on Andrew Strauss’s retirement from cricket.
Lemon Bella writes:
This is how StraussCat took the news of his namesake’s retirement:
Reliable and steadfastly predictable in his conspicuous indifference, he simply focused on that particularly itchy, hard-to-reach bit. I salute him for his years of indifferent achievement and will allow him to retire with the grace befitting such a loyal servant
Meowcus Trescattick, on the other hand, was worringly interested in this news:
Look at him! Look at how perky and intrigued he is!
We may have to look look elsewhere for indifference from now on, because this is clearly the sort of cat who might develop an opinion about Jonny Bairstow.12 Appeals

I’m all for animals being conspicuously indifferent to cricket, but have you seen who is at the crease?
This is taken from a Kent v Surrey T20 game at the Oval. That pigeon should show more respect.

Got this ages ago. Didn’t dare ask what ‘OnZud’ meant in case it was something cool that we should have known. However, we also don’t want people to think we haven’t done our editing properly, so we’re having to draw attention to our ignorance in this opening paragraph anyway.
This is Edwin being conspicuously indifferent to the start of the Caribbean T20 final between Trinidad and Tobago and Hampshire.
Without a dish, the only way to watch cricket in Florida is online – live, highlights or past matches. ESPN3′s current on demand offerings are every match of the Caribbean T20, Bangladesh v OnZud ODIs or Bangladesh v Zimbabwe ODIs. That is it.
I suppose I could have selected Canada v Hampshire, or Combined Campuses and Colleges v Somerset instead, but his reaction would likely have been the same.
Having noticed Edwin had decided to place himself on the cable television box, the 2007 World Cup DVD was placed in the DVD player. You will notice that Edwin was conspicuously indifferent to Saj Mahmood…
… but displayed more of an interest in Gilchrist and Hayden:
“This was my cat Spike’s response to my entire attention being focused on the cricket last night.”
For the sake of clarify, we should point out that ‘last night’ wasn’t the highlights of Canada v Kenya, it was during the Ashes.17 Appeals
Here is my cat Spartacus being conspicuously indifferent to Nathan Hauritz, just like the Australian selectors.
Dandy Dan writes:
When visiting my friends Simon and Esther in Durham, I couldn’t help notice their cat Monty being conspicuously indifferent to the cricket.
However, what we can see from this photo is that Mohammed Ashraful has obviously sensed Monty’s indifference to him and his batting, so has decided to show a similar level of indifference to Monty as some sort of riposte.
Later, when he thought no one was watching, I managed to take a photo of Monty being conspicously interested in the cricket. This interest appears to be too late, as Finn has clearly decided to ignore him.
Animals being conspicously interested in the cricket. Is this a new feature?

This fox cub was not indifferent to cricket. In fact, he was the opposite: he was different to cricket.
So different, in fact, that he wandered into these nets, got tangled up and trapped.
Luckily, the cricket club were able to dig out Sussex CCC’s number, who had experienced similar trouble.
The county sent a man over who sorted the situation.8 Appeals
