(People Magazine)   Shelter workers take in an orphaned new-born rescue kitten unable to walk. They made him tiny homemade splints out of tongue depressors, gauze, medical wrap bandages, and tape to keep his legs steady. The result is anything but depressing on Caturday   (people.com) divider line

Oh forgot to show this, a few weeks ago I caught this little fella in the kitchen at work. I did scare a few of the ladies in the office since I am a jerk like that.

I see Cody has the white-tipped tail.

(heavy sigh, but still a little smile).

He does!
Cooper did not.  He only had like 7 little white hairs.

linuxpyro: I've seen George staring at them through the screen door sometimes, luckily we have no close encounters since he stays in.  That said, in his previous life he was a stray in my neighborhood, so for all I know he, the skunks, and woodchucks knew each other and played poker every other Thursday.f

Sexy Jesus: Right now I live in a rehab because I like drugs.  We had a cat here who was rescued from the dumpster with two broken legs, long before i got here. I was amazed at how laid back this cat was with forty drug addicts running around doing what we do.  The nicest farking cat I've ever known. Some jackass propped a door open one night and he got out and was hit in the street. It was too sad, Sammy was a big part of many of our recoveries. He played fetch for crissakes, where you find another cat like that?

RIP Sammy


I'm so sorry to hear that! :(

The feet and longitudinal lines remind me of a Western Fence Lizard, but the lines aren't usually that well defined.

When I was out working in the flower beds earlier, I noticed that one of the support posts that holds up my stairs is rotten on the bottom, and not even resting on the block! Eeek!! I called a friend, and he is going to come by and have a look to see what needs to be done. I'm glad I saw it before the stairs collapsed!

2020-08-01 4:32:45 PM  

ZAZ: "Why is the mouse wet?" It was a fair question. It had been forming somewhere in my subconcious too. There was no good reason for it. Dead on the floor, that we could understand. The cat had been staring under the refrigerator for days, a sign that it was about to dispense a new toy for her. But wet and dead on the floor, that made about as much sense as a Wookie on Endor.

Under interrogation she refused to explain. Satisfied by a bowl of cat food for breakfast, she had no intention of speaking again until dinnertime.

Too many dishes!!!!

I hear ya. In my house, it's recycle and garbadge that they leave on the countertop at night..right above the cabinet where the bins are located!

Seriously, it's not that difficult as long as it's dealt with promptly!
Arg and then the same folks who left the mess get mad when there's bugs attracted to the mess THEY left!  If you don't like the bugs, maybe you can clean up!?!


I heard THAT!

Bad neighbors brought bed bugs to the building a decade ago, still getting rid of them!

If memory serves, the tails of five-lined skinks are only blue the first time.  If the tail is somehow lost, the new one that grows back is the same color as the rest of the skink.

I had these on the stairs to my place in maritime forest / South Carolina.  The blue of the young tails was brilliant.  I could watch them for hours.  But they are fast and disappear quickly.
