Salem Witch: lilyspad: Salem Witch: Seriously, the hookers love Suzy.

LOL!!!

I do joke about the hookers liking Suzy (they really do). But to be serious for just one post, one of the most important things we can learn from our critters is acceptance.

Suzy will walk up to homeless people, hookers, gang members, she doesn't care. If they pet her, she wags her tail. It takes no effort on my part to treat them with respect and kindness. And they get a little bright spot in their day.

What making a little bright spot in you day might look like.

Suzy was consoling my nephew's daughter after she was scolded for something.


My little pooch always turns scowls into smiles on the street. He's hyper, won't obey even simple commands - but everyone loves him, and I especially enjoy it when a homeless person wants to pet him. Sometimes it's a ruse for 50 cents but usually they just want to pet a dog. It's one of life's simple pleasures you can't always get living on the street.

One step removed from hipster cat, but equally douchey.

OMG! I got an early morning text that interrupted my sleep. I went outside to call them, and the little feral cat that has always stayed at least 10 feet from me, has come over and flopped over and started begging for pets. If it wasn't a male, I'd swear it was in heat! He's meowing, trolling, rubbing my leg, and begging to be petted some more. I'm flabbergasted.

John Buck 41: I submitted this as a Caturday thread last night, assuming that any Caturday submissions after thread-close Tuesday morning would be looked at for Thursday night greenlighting, but apparently not. Only links submitted Thursday afternoon/early evening are eligible :( I am unable to get back online til 8pm Mon thru Fri (my work sked is 11a to 7p). I guess I will never get a Caturday greenlight. Anyway, enough of my (self)pity party. This is about a local kitten Freida who has a rags to riches story. Hope you all like it. It's just a couple minutes long and from the local CBS affiliate.

And again, I don't know how to make this smaller, But you can see the little critter better.  I found him in my kitchen sink! Cute little thing, he looks like a baby gecko to me, I didn't know we had them out here. My nephew is coming to visit on Saturday so I pan to show it to him and then we will find a safe place on the farm to turn him loose. Any ideas on what to feed him until then? I put plants and dirt from the yard in the jar with him. I thought he could eat some plants or maybe bugs that may be on the plants or in the soil. He is a tiny thing, almost went down the drain.

It's not so much that threads submitted before then aren't eligible, but that we get so many overall submissions on a daily basis (an average of 2,000, but frequently more than that) that the ones submitted early like yours end up getting redlit since there's no mechanism in place to set them aside until Thursday afternoon/evening.


Thank you the explanation.

This isn't a cat, but she grew up with one, and then always tried to play with any other cats she met, often much to their annoyance, but she just thought they were playing back.

She was the greatest companion, and died this week, after 13 wonderful years of life.

I'll miss you Etc.  Thanks for everything you gave me.  Sleep well.

HorsesLived4MillionYearsAgo, StudyOfAncientDNAShows mentioned by me yesterday,now gone from page display
Thursday, 27 Jun 2013 12:34 PM  in NewsMax  By Andrea Billups
Scientists working in Canada have discovered the genome of an ancient horse that is 10 times older than any previously found genetic materials and dates back at least 4 million years.
A report in the journal Nature says the material extracted from the toe bone of a 700,000-year-old horse fossil may help reconstruct the path of evolution over millions of years.
The discovery has already led scientists to determine that the horse species is more than 4 million years old or more than twice as old as previously thought. By comparing the ancient DNA to that of a horse that lived 43,000 years ago and one that lives today, biologists working on the scientific team found that the Equus genus,responsible for today's horses, donkeys and zebras, roamed the earth at least four million year ago.
Researchers Duane Froese of Canada's University of Alberta along with Eske Willerslev (name to conjure with?  my comment) of the University of Copenhagen discovered the hind toe bone. It had been buried in layers of permafrost, keeping it at optimum conditions - both cold and dry - to preserve its secrets. It was located in Thistle Creek in the Yukon Territory's famed Klondike gold mines.
"We have beaten the time barrier," evolutionary biologist Ludovic Orlando said. "All of a sudden you have access to many more extinct species than you could have ever dreamed of sequencing before."
While the chemicals in DNA start to break down after an animal dies, enough of the ancient specimen was available to study. What scientists discovered was a wide range of traits that were described as far more fragmented than other horse specimens from the ice age and the same region - leading them to conclude this new sample was far older.
Previously, the oldest genome recovered by scientists was a Denisovan human which was on the Earth 70,000 years ago.
Researchers told the New York Times that the new horse DNA marks a key advancement in the work of paleogenomics, an emerging field of science that has become a key partner to paleontology. Paleogenomics is the study of genomes found in fossil bones.

Eli update! He has mild conjunctivitis, although vet did not see anything on the eye, no ulcers etc. It might just have been an irritation (environmental). So, eye drops three times per day for 3 days and then if the eye looks clear, twice a day until next week..*sigh* Eli really flinched when the doc examined his eye, despite the fact that his eyeball was numb at the time. Our vet said, "He really should not be feeling that!" He was very careful with him after that. Good thing too, he flinched again when he looked under the upper eye lid.
 
2013-06-28 09:49:27 AM
Thanks for the condolences, folks.  It really does help.  Here's two more quick pictures.

She always slept in bed with me.
