Giving Thanks… for the Cat Aquarium

It’s been six weeks since my last blog post.  Lately I find that reading and writing about animals makes me sad and lonely for my own cats, who are staying with my parents until I have a home again, and am no longer traveling for work. So, I haven’t been inspired to write anything, until today.

 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for having wonderful parents, who can and will take care of my kitties while I’m away.  Thank-you, so much.

 

Not all animals are so lucky.  Some kitties have no home at all, and live out in the wilds.  Come wintertime, the stresses of life can be tough for little feral furries.

Enter: The Cat-Aquarium Man.

This concerned man has built what he is calling a “Cat Aquarium” for Thanksgiving this year.  He wanted strays to have a place to go during the weather, so he built a cat aquarium, mounted against his window so the inside of it was visible from inside the house.  It’s like having his own kitty tv channel! … which his kids love, of course.

While this many cats is probably too much for one person to rescue, providing a safe place for them to stay is a great idea. Let’s just hope that window stays closed… ’cause they’ll scatter… into a chaotic kitty frenzy!

Way to go, Cat Aquarium Man. May you inspire others to build kitty looking boxes into their home windows.  Kitty tv channels for everyone!

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 :#)
