Waltz of the Furries

It’s been twelve days since my last post.  I’m getting more and more comfortable living here in Maryland, especially with my roommates, who are becoming more like family everyday.  Here to demonstrate, are a kitteh, a doggeh, and a monkeh, who are just about the best of friends.  What Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers has to do with them… I’m not sure, I just know that I like it. ^_^

 

 

Happy Monkday :_)

 

Crazy Times

It’s been ten days since my last blog post. So much is changing and happening. I’ve changed jobs, and have been/will be traveling much more, and I”ll be moving too. Phew! Life is crazy. How crazy is it? Crazy as a rabbit crushing soda cans… with his tongue sticking out.

 

 

Happy Bunday (|^_^|)

Dallas Otter Learns to Swim

Things don’t get much cuter than a baby otter swimming. The Dallas Zoo’s small-clawed otter pup, Tasanee, has been getting some swimming lessons from her mom, Daphne.

“Even a baby otter has to learn to swim. Our Asian small-clawed otter pup, Tasanee, plays with toys and a hose in a large tub in her indoor habitat, chirping all the while. Her mom, Daphne, teaches her to be sure the little one can navigate the deeper pool in the outdoor habitat.”

And with that, we present Tasanee …

 

Happy Ottersday :#)

Humpback New Yorkers

Humpback whales are taking Manhattan!  There have been twice as many sightings of humpbacks off of Rockaway Beach in Queens than there were two years ago.  That’s amazing!  Also amazing: these shots that New York photographers are capturing of whales against the New York skyline are absolutely jaw-dropping.

 

 

Scientists attribute the return of the whales to cleaner water, and increased populations of Menhaden- a popular prey fish.  I find it interesting that fish named the “menhaden” lives around the island of “Manhattan”.  Could there be a connection?

 

Happy Humpday (^_^)
