Bats, It’s Tuesday!

Trish Wimberley from the Australian Bat Clinic (site appears to be wonky at the moment) introduced the pair while the latest “Pirates Of The Caribbean” film was shooting near her rescue center on the Gold Coast. Johnny expressed his love of bats and offered to sponsor the little one as it undergoes rehabilitation at the clinic, after losing contact with it’s mother during a heavy storm.

Extreme weather events are often damaging to flying fox populations causing many baby bats to be separated from their mothers, often via abnormally high temperatures or cyclonic winds.

Rescued bats in care at the clinic frequently remain for many months as they are prepared for their release back to the wild.

The bat clinic takes in hundred of bats every year and is commited to education and conservation of bats.

Donations can be made via their Facebook page! Remember: Never touch wild bats unless you are vaccinated and are trained to handle them. If you see a bat that needs assistance, call a local wildlife group as soon as possible.

Praying For Noms

[I prayed for a Brother Kitteh and they ended up bringing home a Slobberknocker LABRADOR the size of Vermont. I don’t even know what a ‘Vermont’ is, but he’s that big. So I’m hungry and gonna give this pitiful prayer thing one more shot before I take drastic measures- like climbing up the living room curtains. They think I don’t know how to do that.]

Got A Noisy Puppeh?

Have you tried everything to get a puppeh to stop their incessant barking? Well, then it’s time to bring an enforcer on premises to quiet the little yapper down. Kinda like this cat Greyscale, who means business.
