You don’t say. I’ll be darned. And then what happened? How about that. Is that so? No! Oh really? You did? You can say that again. And how!

Ant sent us a kitty who has discovered the secret of purrpetual meowtion.

Wishing You a Very Merry National Skunk Day

Time to smellabrate!

National Skunk Day is today, June 14.

And that’s nothing to sniff at.


Who nose how this odoriferous occasion got its humble beginnings. Maybe by someone whiff a scents of humor.

In honor of this great holiday, Coast & Canyon Wildlife made a special video of Oreo, the famous behbeh skunkersons!

Thanks for the warning, Kim and Marcia at Coast & Canyon Wildlife!

In Case of Fire Use Stares

As if newborn wildlife didn’t have enough challenges, every spring brings new life and in some places it also brings wildfire season. Luckily, rescuers provided a safe haven for this rare pair!

We didn’t start the fire.


No we didn’t light it

But we tried to fight it.


We’re rekindling an old flame from the 2009 Jesusita fire near Santa Barbara, CA. The 3 week old bobcat kitten and 3 day old fawn were taken to a dispatch office by California animal rescuers who had nowhere else to keep them.

THIS JUST IN: Romulus and Remus Style Tiger Cub Cuteness!

Two rare Siberian tiger cubs nursed by a Shar-Pei! What’s next? Oh yeah don’t tell us, we know, they grow into noble leaders who go on to found the city of Rome, right?


Thank you, courageous Shar-Pei she-wolf. Someday we will name a great city after you.


MMMmmm tastee meelks. And great camouflage.


A random herdsman dude to raise us as his own. This is the stuff of great mythology!

Dark Was The Night

Our hearts were heavy as we set out from the village. Young Wulfbjørnvarr Thorhundskjalg strode ahead, his armour shining in the moonlight. We marched onward toward the dawn. I took heart as I looked around me at the mighty host of warriors, each one proud, steadfast, and clutching a lucky hedgie in their hand as if their very lives depended upon it.
