We Had A Meerkat Monday In 2011

Meerkat ToyboxThree years ago? It’s time for another one.

Fellow Earthlings Wildlife Center near Palm Springs, California cares for Meerkats with nowhere else to go. They take in Meerkats and give them a sweet home to live out their Happy Meerkat Lives!

The only reason they have toys and are interacting with people is these guys were born in captivity–so they can’t be released into the wild. And they do NOT make good pets. This is a private facility- not open to the public- but if you “adopt a meerkat” you can set up a visit where you’ll help serve lunch. Mmmmmm, anyone for seconds?

Getting down to the bottom of it all.

Worms inside a ball. That’s pretty much as good as it gets here.

Play, dig, snack, nap. Play, dig, snack, nap. It’s just how they roll.

Photos and lots of quality info from KB.

ResQte Of The Week® is usually every Thursday, but this came in on Friday morning. And besides, if we make the rules, we can bend ‘em, right? Susan H. says: “My amazing friend Carolyn has rescued an orphaned Baby Cottontail Bun that she found on her lawn recently.”

“The little Bun Bun was only a couple days old when she found it, eyes not even open yet, and she’s been feeding it and keeping it safe. At the moment the little guy (gal?) is hanging in there and eating eagerly. Thought you might like the pictures…maybe for Bunday?” [Oh, I'd agree with that. -Ed.]
