An Owl Burrito To Go, Please

These little fellows are called Saw-Whet Owls, at the University of Minnesota Raptor Center’s clinic. The clinic nurses ‘em back to health when they have medical needs.

The Return O’ Kikuma & Silvey

Through extensive detailed scientific investigation and all sorts of CSI and Hawaii 5-0 crime lab stuff, we’ve pawsitively determined that this IS Kikuma, thus avoiding another ID kerfuffle. [More likely because it says the NAME on the video clip. -Ed]

Sender-Inner AT: “Was totally gobsmacked [GREAT word- we need more gobsmacked posts. -Ed] to see all the pictures in one go LOL.

“Also one of your commenters brought up an old one I forgot I uploaded for the breeder 2~3 years ago. And, um, I forgot the password and couldn’t access the old account lol.”

“Um, this is Silvey. She’s the easiest to recognize because she’s exactly as her name describes: Silver. Silvey is Kikuma’s aunt. Literally. She’s so tiny she makes Kikuma look like The Hulk. Under 4″ tall at nearly 6 years old.”

Philosopher Bunny Struggles with Truth

The days pass like shadows, creeping up walls until all is darkness and night. I pace from room to room, endless as the dim twisting corridors of my soul, seeking answers that do not come. From the other room I hear her call to me, like a desperate angel, powerless to break the chains that bind me to this world of woe.

“You gonna finish these carrots or what?” she softly asks.

Or what, I muse to myself. What… indeed?


We take you now to sender-inner Elizabeth S. at our Too Much Information desk: “Here is a picture taken recently of my bunnies Plushie and Twinkie. They’re brother and sister and absolutely inseparable. We had to separate them before they were spayed and neutered. Plushie would try to break out of his cage to go and see her. He was successful… TWICE.”

Who is Being Amused Here Really?

At first, you think I am amusing to you.

As if I were mere entertainment!

But also you are amusing to me.

Whether you laugh with me or at me, I still made you laugh.

This amuses me as much as a very amusing thing.

Kelly G. writes, “This is my adorable Sharpei, Roscoe, sleeping with my cat, Little Brittle (formerly known as Itty Bitty). This is proof that cats and dogs can live together in harmony. By the way, I rescued Brittle after my brother found her meowing outside of his bedroom window last winter. She was abandoned by her mother and had to be bottle fed until she was big enough to eat on her own. Now she’s part of my furry family and BFF’s with the best dog friend a cat could ask for.”

Incoming! Duck!

Run for your lives! It’s an incoming duck! So you’d better duck! Because it’s incoming! And… it’s a duck. See, it’s kind of a joke, because I say “incoming duck” and then I say “incoming” and “duck” and… OK, I’ll be quiet now.
