    Turkey Vulture, rescued and taken to a certified wildlife rehabilitator, s/he was able to be released back into the wild after some healing. I put this photo here instead of natural world because this beautiful bird wasn't afraid when I picked her up and during the several hours she was with me. It was really an amazing experience. How I came to take her to the rehab center is a VERY long story; I will just tell you the funny part. I was reading in a cafe when someone came in to get me saying there was a big black bird that was injured on her lawn. Ok, I thought probably a crow... well imagine my surprise.... LOL



    P.S. I'd love for everyone to post multiple pictures of their buds, I just know that Kontrapunctus has several pictures of the girls readily available. Thanks for sharing, Everybody! I'm going back to my reading.

    Every morning, Ethel rubs her face on their food dishes before I serve them breakfast.



    Today, I was listening to music with my eyes closed (truth be told, I was nearly asleep...), and Ethel jumped into the chair along side of me. When I didn't acknowledge her, a moment or two later she gently patted my cheek with a paw--I guess to see if I were OK! Who says cats aren't loyal and loving? (Sorry, no pictures.)

    Took this video yesterday, too precious not to share. I guess I'll have to have a squirrel video playlist on my YouTube channel, to keep them separate from my flute videos lol.

    Ethel just loves my slippers, but to her credit, she never chews on them--she just lies on them.

    Rorschach


    A neighborhood stray who adopted us, with some persuasion by Ms. Z. It was actually a month long campaign, but finally he was persuaded. A good cat with good instincts, which is to say he catches mice, looks after the yard and sleeps on the wife's side of the bed.

    That's a great story, Mr. Z! What is that metal thing surrounding Rorschach?

    It is sort of a plant holder shaped like a cart with wheels, lying on its side on a couch where I put it while sweeping the porch floor. Rorschach just happened to be there at the moment and temporarily shared space with it.

    My peeps just got back from another trip down to the shore. Gracyn loves to swim! No pictures of Azure swimming because the minute he gets in the lagoon he starts swimming to find and chase the ducks--they just love to tease him.

    Fezziwig or Fezziwiggle is a great name for a cute little critter. It's cuddly all by itself.

    Thanks, Z! Fezziwig is really a love muffin. I know that some people say that domesticated ferrets are vicious but I think it has more to do with how they interact with those around them. When they are very young, like any animal, they have to learn the strength of their jaw. Ferrets don't learn by smacking them, time-outs, or the word "no"; it's just a matter of gently tickling their muzzle to get them to learn to clench more gently. Ferrets, at least "mine" have never been very interested in many toys: they love to go into my bags, explore and "ferret" something out; swing inside one of the many packing envelopes for books/cds, etc., that arrive by post; and Fezzi has two plushy animals that he loves. One is a cat toy: a a plush bird tied to a string--OMG! he chases the bird and then he grooms the little bird the first few times he catches it--seriously!, he grooms the bird, and then stashes the bird in his secondary stash den. Sorry, I could go on for pages and pages... Last thing, re/ the names. I don't know why it's such a big thing with me but there is a primary name but then I use continuous variants all the time: Fezziwig, Fezzi, Fezziwiggle, The Wayward Wiggler, etc., etc,.... Do you and Leslie do the same with Rorshach?--No way do I buy that he's just Leslie's cat!
