“Meet my boy, Rufus. He is one adorable little Boston bean. As a matter of fact, his nickname is “Beans.” Not quite sure how it happened, but now he actually answers to either name.” -Marisa G.

A Cat’s Bag is His Castle

You know, a coat of paint, some furniture, some curtains, couple turrets, and this bag ain’t half bad.

I’d also like a moat, full of alligators, to keep out the riff raff.

“My two tabby males, Bart and Harry Chanuka are always sparring for dominance. My black cat, Joe Meower (polydactyl paws look like catcher’s mitts) ended up a sandwich. Exit strategy is not his strong point!” -Mary W.

The proud first-time Mama is named Sorrel. What will the cubs’ names beeee?! (singsong)

Sorrel is being the best new Mama ever, but we think all red panda Mamas should check out How to pick up a baby Red Panda in 5 easy steps!

The cubs are still in seclusion until this fall. But zoo visitors can view Sorrel and her cubs on a video monitor.

Even a fluffy black Eminence on a neon tapestry is getting upstaged by Wally!

It’s OK, all you hot pink and fuchsia flowers, ain’t no shame in being outdone by Wally.

“We adopted Wally, the Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot, when he was 23 years old and had had two previous owners.  He will live well into his sixties and I have promised him a forever home. He has settled into our family of 2 dogs, 2 cats, a cockatiel, a tortoise and a Bearded Dragon. I love to place Wally in colorful settings around the back yard and take his photo.” -LuvFurArt.com artist, Kris B.
