Almost looked like the cats were just tired of sitting upright.  That's how my lazy kitties are!

The little hamsters? seemed to "totally get it" in the way they played their part, hilarious and enlightening - I want a hamster now.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Yeah, the first hamster (0.30 in to the clip) gets an Oscar, that's for sure.
Hey, lets name him Oscar.

Here are some other likely "candidates".
Look at the "killing-spree" at 0.50, a virtual drive-by.
How this breed survived evolution is beyond understanding. Maybe the predators took pity on them, or thought that they were a total ridiculously easy meal and no sports for them, So the let them go for that reason.

Okay the JRT looks a little too happy to be playing dead. LOL Tail wagging after being shot kills me.

And the German Shepherd gets the Oscar for most dramatic death scene. :P

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
