Indeed! What an awesome program.

Speaking of Eli, yesterday we had Thundersnow. We got a real slushy fall, and Eli was out in it briefly. You should have heard him complaining all the way inside. Hehehe! Like a little old man...

Watch a platypus happily wiggle around as she is pet, tickled and hand-fed at this Australian sanctuary.

Ever wonder what sounds a frogmouth pygmy owl would make when tickled? Now you have your answer: incredibly cute ones!

Puppies are too young to know that tennis balls are their friends, not their enemies. The plus side? Puppies
investigating innocent objects is extremely adorable.

This isn't Piiki who lets us sleep in her room, marked incorrectly, but moves could be hers.
Editing to do, bbl.  It's been Graupeling here, no Thundersnow like on S Erie Coast.

When I left work today it was sunny *and* snowing. It didn't last long but it sure was weird.

I mentioned this last Monday and promised photos. I picked up Mandu's remains on Monday and there was also a paw print cast in terra cotta. I still plan to have Walgreen's photo department make a photo keepsake box for his ashes like the ones I have for Earl and Abby but the box the remains came in is really nice. The plaque isn't stuck on yet so I can put it elsewhere and use the box for something else.

The plaster of paris paw print for Earl (it's dirty because I kept it in a plant pot until the plant died):

CATURDAY!!!
My autocorrect knows this word now, which pleases me greatly because sometimes I'm too lazy to type out the entire word on my own. 😺😸😺😸

Yes, this is a bookmark.
I'll be back, hopefully after noms.

TGIC !!  Greetings, All...   has gotten cool here, had a mini flurry that lasted 5 minutes... just a few flakes...  Fred has been flaked out in the utility room for the last few nights.. heating pad is activated... larger pet door makes it easier to get in and out.. he has definitely gotten larger.. needs more exercise!   I had him chasing the tennis ball around the yard last night.. he may be chunky, but he is very fast.. hope that we have a minimum of sads this weekend...

Agreed! Or I need to stop wearing makeup when I'm on Caturday.....the mascara isn't so pretty running down my face. At least Lily doesn't care what I look like!

You're just way too cruel. Must have taken the poor thing six seconds to fall back to sleep!

As someone who used to have as many as 25 feral cats living in a barn and found that barn a bit too small for 25 cats, I'm wondering how many cats something like this realistically holds:

img513.imageshack.us

I know Chicago winters get cold, but that looks like a recipe for two strong cats who get kept warm and 10 weaker cats who freeze to death outside.  I would think something compartmentalized would work better, because then each cat could claim a smaller space but it would be its own.
