A spider being conspicuously indifferent to cricket

Ged writes:

This plucky fellow was observed in the Lower Compton Stand at Lord’s, very close to the historic concrete step where King Cricket demonstrated his “Real World Skills” in 2016.

Perhaps this spider’s magnificent web is an arachnidian equivalent of a blue plaque, commemorating King Cricket’s astonishing feat…or merely the fact that King Cricket once sat there. A rotund specimen, this – a veritable arachnoid Dwayne Leverock. Take a closer look; magnificent.

Tigger being conspicuously indifferent to Toby Roland-Jones

Mike writes:

Try as I might, I was unable to get Tigger to show the slightest interest in To-Ro-Jo’s debut destruction of the Saffer top order – in fact she positioned herself as far away as possible from the action, atop a throne of recently used but as-yet-unputaway guest bedding.

She may have realised it’s only the highlights, or perhaps it’s because, as a Scottish cat, she considers cricket a sport for southern faeries. Perhaps she’ll spring to life should we catch a glimpse of Vermin Philander or Catgiso Rabada…

A cat moved from indifference by Toby Roland-Jones

Tom in Keynsham writes: “I know it’s not the usual thing, but it was noteworthy that our cat Olive took note of the cricket for the first time in her two-and-a-bit years on this planet during the emergence of Toe Roe-Joe.”

Don’t worry, we’ve already commended Tom on providing a photo that includes not just a cat and some cricket, but also Prosecco and a table saw.

A cat struggling to be indifferent to cricket

Moggy

Marissa writes:

I can offer no explanation as to why Moggy is even trying to pretend she’s not watching the match, seeing as she’s a staunch England fan (named after Eoin Morgs).

During the match she frequently yelled at Bairstow “I can’t believe he’s not Buttler!”

And yes, she uses her amazing powers of speech to make bad puns while watching cricket.

A budgerigar being conspicuously indifferent to cricket

Balladeer writes:

Recently my friend acquired a budgerigar, named Amigo.

The second photograph I saw of said budgie was this:

Budgie-crammed

Crammed himself into his feeder. An Australian species of parrot, wearing the green-and-gold, with David Warner’s intelligence. Could you get more of an obvious Australian fan?

I asked my friend to provide a picture of the budgie’s reaction to some Aussie cricketing news, to prove it.

ashes-budgie

Results so far are inconclusive.

Two dogs being conspicuously indifferent to cricket

Dandy Dan writes:

These are my two labs, George and Rufus.

George and Rufus

They’re just over one year old. I’ve been meaning to introduce them for a while but I’ve been busy.

Anyway, their thoughts about Gary Ballance being dropped are difficult to ascertain.

Loss of Ballance

They simply don’t appear to be interested.

StraussCat being conspicuously indifferent to Graeme Smith’s retirement

Lemon Bella writes:

As is customary at times like this, cricketing greats of the past must come out of the woodwork to pass opinion on the breaking news of the day. Therefore I found it necessary to consult StraussCat regarding the retirement of Graeme Smith.

He wasn’t particularly interested when I told him the news, but his indifference reached a peak when I showed him all my match tickets from the summer Indian Skimmer and I spent following Graeme Smith around England.

Possibly a hint of distaste?

Look! There’s even a South African lanyard he could have played with, but he chose to ignore it.

He got up and walked away when I told him that the Test match ticket was for the day before Graeme scored his awesome 154 to win the series.

Mandy being conspicuously indifferent to King Cricket

Ed writes:

Please find attached a picture that seems to tick all the boxes. Found it while going through some old pictures yesterday.

Oh Mandy

The kitten was called Mandy and is sadly no longer with us.


Monty’s unacceptable urination

You may remember our cat, Monty. Here he is being conspicuously indifferent to cricket a few years back. He’s actually sitting on the cricket pages, the heathen.

Monty cannot read with his arse

What you might not know about Monty is that he likes to piss on things. On one memorable occasion, he walked into the living room, caught our eye and urinated on the DVD player, holding our gaze as he did so. Unsurprisingly, Monty has been kicked out more than once for his urinary transgressions.

His namesake, Mr Panesar, does things rather differently. He gets kicked out first before turning to urination as a means of protest. Apparently, after being slat out of a Brighton nightclub on Sunday night, Panesar went up on the promenade and micturated down on the bouncers of said establishment as they stood below him.

Presumably he was marking his territory in some way. We’ve examined that notion further over at Cricinfo.


Two cats being indifferent to King Cricket

Bradders writes:

“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.

A textbook double-shun

“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.

As a cat, Jaffa has no money with which to place a bet

“Shortly after this they jumped down and went to eat.”
