Ok, so here are a couple of Open the Happy videos of our animals! We still have animals! We haven’t been showing them often in our videos in the studio, because we were still trying to ensure that the studio was safe for Dr. Meemersworth, but now that we’re all settled it seems like we can bring both animals in here just fine. Woohoo! They were with us yesterday for our filming of Kpop Music Motuweday, and they’re here with us again today. Yay!

So, here are the vids. One is an old one of Meemers when he first discovered his love of water, in our apartment in Bucheon, back in August. AW! He was so tiny back then!

The second video is in the playlist above. If playlists don’t work for you (mobile users, for instance), here’s the video on its own:

 

So, if you can’t tell by the look in his scraggly face, Spudgy is getting really old now. He’s around 9 years old or so. The Dr. predicted he’d live to 10 because of his heart condition. So, we’re doing our best to be extra cautious with Spudgy and to take the best care of him possible. He’s got a lot of heart meds, for example. The other thing we’re supposed to do is keep him very warm when he goes outside. Dogs with heart conditions can die when peeing outside in the cold, because their bodies lose a lot of warmth through peeing, and that can cause a heart attack or something.

All this results in Spudgy dressing up in outfits he clearly hates. We can’t express to him the importance of wearing these outfits, so we just have to suffer his dirty cut-eye. SPUDGY! If you’re reading this, then please forgive us! Also, if you’re reading this, how did you get access to the internet, you bizarre dog you?

Last video is of Dr. Meemersworth getting sticky rolled. Not sure why he likes it so much. Meemers likes a lot of weird things, like tap water, sticky rolling, and – we just discovered this – bubble bath bubbles. He’s utterly fascinated with the bubbles. Maybe a video on that later. For now, here’s our silly cat.

  1. spudy i wish you have a long life age and please keep keep your health and i don’t want you death next year (spudgy, im very very sorry for my poor english)

  2. “…we were still trying to ensure that the studio was safe for Dr. Meemersworth, but now that we’re all settled it seems like we can

    bring both animals in here just fine. ” I remember you had this leak… you got it fixed right? :s

    “So, if you can’t tell by the look in his scraggly face, Spudgy is getting really old now. He’s around 9 years old or so. The Dr. predicted he’d live to 10 because of his heart condition.

    Thank you for posting!

  3. My cat, Willie, was diagnosed with cancer. The vet gave him 2 -3 months. Well, he was diagnosed in December and it’s going on March and he’s purring and eating normally. Here’s hoping he stays like that for a long time.

    I’m sorry to hear that about Spudgy. It sucks to get a time limit on a pet.

  4. I had my pekingese for 15 years, and she lived to be 17…she also had heart problems and was on medication (I think for the last five years or so of her life, and we were told repeatedly that she wouldn’t make it through the year, every year). So I just wanted to put it out there, that it is possible that he could outlive his predicted 10 years. :)

  5. can someone tell me how old spudgy is now? xD please and ty!

  6. Did you ever explain why you named Dr. Meemersworth Dr. Meemersworth?

  7. bigbangfosho

    D: viva la spudgy!

  8. i really like spudgy. he reminds me a lot of my dog (it’s the s<me breed only that i have a girl). She hate's any kind of costume or accessory we try and put on her. one time we tried to make her ware a little cap and she just froze. i'm nit even talking about a couple of minutes, it was hours and hours and hours. she stood in the same spot refused to move eat whatever until we caved and took the cap off. i miss her a lot now T_T

    Dr Meemersworth is SO CU~TE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just wanna squish him so bad!!!!!
    T_T oh no!!!! Spudgy!!! i didn’t know that!!! how sad!!!!

  10. omg where did you buy that outfit for Spudgy? i want to buy something like that for my dog too ^^ wonder if he will like it.. i doubt it actually but i still want to buy one..

  11. Did Meemers’ eyes go from blue/grey to yellow??

    • Cat eyes tend to do that. Human babies also often have a different eye color than they have when they grow up (starting out with blue, turning to hazel and such)

  12. I had to work so hard now to squeal from the cuteness. Squealing like a little girl in a silent study room would probably get me so many stink eyes.

  13. one thing i can’t stand is cats touching black articles of clothing

    …. oh all the shedding -__-;

  14. You just made me cry…I love Spudgy….can I do anything to help him even though I’m from the U.S.?

  15. thisisjustforfunval

    My cat LOVES bubbles. I get a bottle of bubbles and just blow them in the air and she just goes nuts chasing after them. No need for expense cat toys with my cat, just a bottle of bubbles. :)

    Lol and poor Spudgy her was seriously grumpy about that sweater he was having to wear. He has the best facial expressions and personality. He was born to be a star.

  16. I’m really sorry to hear about Spudgy :( Went through similar things with a few of our dogs (one had to be put down, one went deaf and had to be rehomed as our dogs are working dogs, and a few other incidents).

    You guys are doing a great job on taking care of him and ensuring he’s comfortable

  17. I’m a little sad inside. Please be well Spudgy.

  18. My Himalayan loves tap water, and my mutt kitty will come running when we plug in the running water fountain. I think it’s a wild instinct for animals to prefer fresher, running water than stagnant water sources.

    On a sadder note, since Meemers grew up with Spudgy, he (depending on how close they are) might be very sad when Spudgy is gone :( there are all these anecdotes of animals making distress calls because they can’t understand where the other animal went.

  19. One of our cats loves applesauce. But turns down other human food like chicken.

  20. i remember when involving these animals used to be cute… then it just became really boring and took up valuable video time :(

    • Some of us still like them, don’t diss them just because you don’t like them, not everyone likes the same things

      • if i dont like them, shouldn’t i say that i don’t like them? Isn’t that the very point of having an opinion of your own?

        • nonprofit_tech

          No. The very point of having an opinion of your own is to ‘have an opinion of your own’. There’s absolutely, no requirement or obligation to share that opinion. In fact, learning the lesson of when to share an opinion to the masses, share with a friend, or keep an opinion to yourself, is very valuable.

        • Can I add that to my moderating repertoire? :p

          I must agree that having an opinion is one thing, while sharing it is quite another. If everybody just spoke whatever they thought all the time (otherwise known as being ‘brutally honest’) – human relationships would crumble in no time. I believe that the act of deciding how much of your opinion you choose to share is what they call ‘tact’.

          On the other hand, I’m happy when people feel comfortable expressing their opinions here on EYK, so long as they do it in a respectable manner ^^b

        • lol, it’s a human right to be allowed to share your opinion. it’s also written in the law of most democratic countries.
          implying to someone that you can have an opinion of your own but you shouldnt share it; that’s just weird imho.

          this is the internet. ppl will share their opinion abt everything. deal with it (preferrably by not caring and/or reading abt stuff you dont like)

        • nonprofit_tech

          Well one, your question was, exactly, “if i dont like them, shouldn’t i say that i don’t like them? Isn’t that the very point of having an opinion of your own?” I just stated that ‘no’ that isn’t true at all. You can have your opinion, you don’t need to voice your opinion. Voicing your opinion is something you decide to do in addition of having an opinion. The two are tangential not congruent. I have and I voice are two separate things.

          But also, your confusing Freedom of Speech versus Freedom of Expression. Freedom of Expression is part of international Human Rights law. Freedom of Speech is part of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. And one of the first things it makes explicitly clear, is you have the right to ‘not speak’. Personally, I feel it should be used judiciously.

          But lastly, ‘Freedom of Speech’ is not absolute, in any country, and is actually about political speech, not day to day conversations. That’s the realm of your parents and the educational institution teaching you good civil behavior.

          That said, my response, didn’t focus on what you said and if it had any value; it was specifically the answer to the question you ask. Your question was the equivalent of “…isn’t it my right and obligation to voice my opinion on this matter?” My response is still…’No.’ But that’s not trying to stop you from doing so. It’s just a statement of fact, that no, there was no obligation, whatsoever.

        • “But also, your confusing Freedom of Speech versus Freedom of Expression.
          Freedom of Expression is part of international Human Rights law.
          Freedom of Speech is part of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.”

          and that is the case only in the us. in many democratic countries (not that i did not say all countries earlier) they are not separate, eg that is the case in my country. and no it is not always about political speech. it gives you the right to say anything you want, so long as you do not break any laws.

          and you are right. it is not my obligation to voice my opinion on this. but the same can be said for 100% of the other comments on this site. Nobody is obliged to comment, yet they do. Why? Because they have the right to do it and they want to do it.
          People who disagree with what they say can easily just ignore the comments

    • if you don’t like their pet videos, don’t watch them, and your time won’t be wasted.

      • you should read what i wrote. Clearly i wasn’t referring to pet videos but their other videos where Spudgy gets to cameo.

        It’s getting irritating to see how often people on the internet cannot think for themselves and always assumes the wrong thing even though it is obvious what someone else meant.

          personally, i found your original comment very vague, and can easily see how it could be interpreted two ways. To you it obviously refers to video interruptions, but to others it doesn’t read that way. I’m simply saying [from a neutral standpoint] that people on the internet CAN think for themselves, which is WHY they can interpret one comment multiple ways.

        • i think i agree with u there hehe.

        • nonprofit_tech

          Did you actually read what you wrote, versus what maybe you think you wrote? Your actually words were:

          [quote] i remember when involving these animals used to be cute… then it just became really boring and took up valuable video time :( [/quote]

          There’s actually, nothing in that statement to indicate, that you are talking about the use of animals in anything other than the current, off-channel, pet videos, which can easily be avoided.

          Now, if you wrote that statement, as a comment on say, K-POP Music Mondays video, then, it would imply, that you didn’t like the pets involved in that ‘Music Monday’ video or potentially ALL Music Monday videos. But unfortunately, as stated, it can only be referenced to the video you stated it on, which is a video about their pets, that you didn’t have to watch.

          When checking for clarity of comments, you need to review the comment for not only, ‘did I say what I wanted to say’ but also for ‘does it convey to others what I wanted to convey’. Read it as others will read it, not as how you think you wrote it. It’s a common editing mistake.

        • if i say that it takes up valuable video time; how can i refer to entire videos that consist of only following the animals?

        • nonprofit_tech

          Basically by implying that instead of them taking the time to create this video, that you would prefer them to have used their time to make ‘other’ videos. That’s why your comment lacked ‘clarity’. You think it’s clear, because you are reading it as you. Read it as the audience you intended it for. You provide no reference to indicate that you are talking about anything other, than the current video. So your comment and commentary are read as if you are talking about THIS video.

    • Cyber_3

      See? I and I thought it was hilarious when kitten Meemers would ruin the shot – over and over again – LOL! (But then again, I wasn’t the person filming or editing……). Maybe big Dr. Meemersworth will do the same at the studio, grey and whites are usually so bossy, especially the males (but oh so CUTE!).

    • irritablevowel

      Raise your hand if you totally imagine it’s this cat saying that

  21. Its sad to think your time left with Spudgy might be limited, but the time you have had with him have been happy times full of love as will the time you have left. :)

  22. your pets are so cute guys ^3^

  23. Watching these videos makes me wanna have pets even more than I already do… It’s addicting XD

  24. Meemers is on an anti lint fur brigade, it seems. Cats are distracted by the funniest things. XD
    But gerdamn, I feel you on the sticky paper Simon! It’s always such a hassle to get off, it just gets stuck to your fingers and never tears easily, it always rips in annoying chunks that you have to use your nails – or lack thereof – to remove and it takes forevaaaa.

    But Meemers is an adorable cat nonetheless (he’s so big, I still remember when you guys first got him and already he’s been through so many adventures!). And don’t feel alone about Spudgy, my dog is the same way! She’s going to be 13 this year – her name’s Jazzy and she’s a Yorkshire Terrier – and most of the time she’ll just lay there and give me that same lazy eyed ‘I hear you but I’m not going to lift a single paw’ look that Spudgy was giving you, Martina… They still love us… Even in dorky adorable necessary sweaters… (Jazzy’s is red and has Mickey Mouse playing football on it.)

    Or maybe he was just falling asleep because the sweater is that satisfyingly cozy.
    The world may never know.

    Thanks for the cute videos! ^^

  25. My cat liked being vacuumed and also loved the tap. His morning ritual was to demand to be watered at the bathtub, then the laundry sink, followed by the pantry sink then a 12 hour sleep in the sun…

  26. awww i wish spudgy will live longer… love him :3 take it away spudgy! ang meemers is getting big haha so cuuuuute

  27. Something else for laughs, I thought the Nasty fandom will enjoy this more than any others. http://www.harkavagrant.com/

  28. I wish my kitty Mr. Mistoffelees liked bubble baths… I had to give him a bath last week and I’m convinced that he’s holding a grudge and hates me now… WHY MISTER!!! T_T

  29. I think Spudgy likes his sweater so much he just wants to stay there and sleep on the spot XD but then again he’s not my dog so i wouldn’t know. I wish my dogs would just sit and sleep like that (x

  30. You could be viewing Spudgy’s reaction to his jumper all wrong. He’s not cross, he’s deeply, deeply contented. He doesn’t want to walk outside in case he gets his lovely new jumper dirty and he’s giving you stink eye because he doesn’t want you to come near him in case you take his jumper off. Or maybe not…

  31. awww, poor Spudgy :( That’s so sad to hear but it’s nice that you guys are taking such good care of him! We love you Spudgy!!

  32. I think Dr.Meemersworth might be ready for Public Service Annoucement for tap water…too adorable. Spudgy is adorable too…don’t want him to get jealous.

  33. I’m dying because of all the cuteness… Kyaaa

    Oh, it’s pretty normal for a cat to drink water from a tap. It is possible to buy sort of drinking fountains for cats.

  34. Does Meemersworth like… licking plastic bags? O_o My cat will sit on them and lick them for some reason I heardthat it might be because of fish oils in the plastic or something, but I don’t know… Just curious if anyone else’s cat does that or if mine’s just weird hahah

    • Mine likes to sleep in them. And try to eat them. But then again, my cat is a little special… H-he’s not the smartest.

    • It’s really weird, but a friend of mine had a cat who LOVED plastic bags. Would creep inside them. Then her dad would pick up the bag and I kid you not, swing it around with the cat inside. Which is horrible, except the cat loved it. She would waddle out of the bag, dizzy, pause for a moment, and then creep back inside and look at my friend’s dad as if to say, “MOAR.” :/

    • Cyber_3

      My cats love plastic bags too. They spray them with some kind of animal hormones/sweat/whatever to keep them from sticking together, that’s what the cats like, that and I think it’s like flossing for them.

      Cyber_3 – 1 cat likes plastic+1 cat like foam+1 cat likes mesh+1 cat likes carboard+1 cat likes wood = ultimate destruction

    • thisisjustforfunval

      My strange cat loves licking plastic bags as well or anything plastic for that matter. Her favorite plastic thing is the shower curtain liner. I’m sure if the curtain itself was plastic she would lick that too.

    • Animal fats are put into many plastics. It is a theory on why the cats are so interested in them. It may gross you out to know how many other products have animal byproducts in them…

  35. Awhh !!! They are both so adorable !!! I was really starting to miss seeing their own special little videos . Not that I’m not happy seeing you guys xD . Stay healthy Spudgy !!! The sweater is for your own good ;D

  36. Aw Spudgy :/ – Don’t get old!

    Meemers is hilarious with the sticky rolling! Gotta love how cats are so funny and crazy. Our family has a cat that likes to be cuddled and carried, and he waits at the door for us to come home just so we can cuddle him.

  37. Oh my, Meemers has gotten so big. Sometimes I wish animals could stay tiny forever.
    It must be even worse when he tries to climb on you guys now! LOL.
