predle: I couldn't believe that someone would be so cruel and heartless
Deathbymeteor: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Deathbymeteor: B's been busy climbing, which I think means her home is dryer than the hydrometer says. Have to keep trying to add humidity for her, which is difficult when she lays out as long and as flat as she gets, just to make adding water a challenge. But she's eating again, so it may just be another seasonal thing.Now, being the typical "Eeeek! Spider!!!" *runs away dragging fainting couch behind her for later use* type, I am very unedjumakated about caring for spiders. Is there a reason it is harder to add water when she's like that? Are you not supposed to get the actual spider wet or what? Or is it you just don't want her attacking you?I suppose that should have been "Dude, so do you mist water in there and let her lick or whatever it off any structures in the environment or does she have a little water dish type thingie?" I seriously don't know how that works because I would have died of horror by now. Good on you for caring for Miss B, btw.[i.chzbgr.com image 500x312]Both, but she doesn't lick it off or drink water normally. She gets all her water from food. But because she's not very tall (maybe 3.5 inches when she raises up as tall as possible) she tends to run away when water touches her (she's covered in fine hairs for sensing, like kitteh whiskers). So she tends to head to high ground even if only a small droplet lands on her. Otoh, if she sees water pouring into her home (usually when I add it to her dish), she has a tendency to start to attack it, since she sees a reflection, which means "another spider in my house, get it!" Then she inevitably touches the water, realizes that it is water, and skitters away worried about the impending flood (I guess, her thoughts aren't so obvious). She's pretty laid back, the epitome of "oh you're here and you're leaving me alone to my devices? Good"She's my bug, and she's my rescued critter. Can't have kittehs in current apartment, will make sure they are allowed in t ...
akimbotoo: lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 478x640]That was me at the drive through bank teller yesterday! She commented on how well I was staying cool. I glanced in the rearview mirror and saw my hair was waving in the wind of my ac as I drove away and figured out how she knew! Lordy, still having blond moments at my age. White hair isn't as noticeable on a blond. ;DYes, I did have all of the vents aimed at me! I don't like 95 degrees.
predle: I was in line at the grocery store yesterday and the woman in front of me had lots of kitty food and treats, so naturally I asked her how many cats she had. She didn't have any, the food was for the cat that she took care of. She told me that the owner was in assisted living and the people there had taken her cat to a shelter. The elderly lady called a taxi and went over to Dumb Friends League and got her cat back. I couldn't believe that someone would be so cruel and heartless, but I love the way the owner wouldn't let them get away with it.If someone tried to take my cats away, this is what they'd see. I'll have to teach Morticia how to shoot, I wouldn't trust Juno or Lucy with a gun. Especially not Juno.[predle576.smugmug.com image 450x450]

laulaja: Got tale of Recent Elephant Rescue for DLC & whoever else ...Abused Elephant Raju Sheds Tears During Rescue by Cherise Udell 7:04AM todayRaju, a 50-year old Indian elephant was finally rescued last week after a lifetime of abuse. During the rescue, when it became clear that the group of 32 people, which included ten veterinarians, were there to rescue him, big crocodile tears rolled down his leathery cheeks."The team was astounded to see the tears," said Pooja Binepal, a spokesman for Wildlife SOS, the wildlife rescue group that coordinated the effort. "It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realized he was being freed. Elephants are majestic and highly intelligent animals. We can only imagine what torture the past half a century has been for him."Indeed, poor Raju who had been likely captured as a baby, was sold many times during his 50 years. His most recent owner cruelly chained him 24-hours a day with spiked chains, forced him to work and beat him when he did not.During the rescue his sadistic owner tried to abort the rescue by layering tight chains and spikes on the elephant and then yelling commands to confuse Raju. Fortunately, Raju listened to his rescuers instead and soon was free.Following his emancipation, he was taken to the Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India. His underweight body was covered in abscesses and wounds, but he is expected to make a full recovery. Wildlife SOS is facilitating his medical care and helping to introduce him to other elephants at the center. On July 4th he took his first free steps in 50 years.The average lifespan for elephants is 60 to 70 years, so hopefully Raju can enjoy his retirement and freedom for years to come.[i.imgur.com image 443x267]To see more photos of the rescue visit http://www.wildlifesos.org/blog/rajus-journey-freedom-photo-journalRead more: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/abused-elephant-cries-tears-during-r e scue.html#ixzz377MXuUpi

Real Women Drink Akvavit: lilyspad: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Yeah, that's an incredibly accurate depiction of the emotional current of the moment. I'm lucky I didn't get sprayed. Again.Oh dear! You are such a sweetie.... :DNah. I can't think of a single Caturdayian who wouldn't be trying to do right by those cats. The lurkers as well, most likely. They wouldn't be staring at us if they were soulless monsters. The politics tab is a much better train wreck with accompanying pile of corpses to dance over for that type. Our lurkers have both taste and class. They probably don't smell bad, either. :-D[tse1.mm.bing.net image 300x208]
John Buck 41: Snuffybud: I guess I'll post vacation pics while I wait for Earl's story to unfold, here's a couple from today. We kayaked out to my high school buddy's campsite, then paddled around Forked Lake.It's Fuller the Wonder Dog! He sat calmly in the canoe while his people paddled him all around![i380.photobucket.com image 640x360]My buddy John (on the right) and me, you won't find a better looking pair of 57 year old Eagle Scouts anywhere else in the Adirondacks!!![i380.photobucket.com image 480x640]Eagle Scout? Good for you. I made it to Life (plus a couple extra MBs) but succumbed to peer pressure when I got to high school--"You're a BOY scout? That's not cool!" around '72. Wish I'd stayed in and got to Eagle.
