Let’s plant a hedgehog tree

1. Soak hedgehog seed overnight so ears fully moisten
2. Find sunny spot in garden
3. Hedgehog seed will burrow right in and plant itself.

It’s time to play WHACK-A-KITTY!

Squealing Home

It’s baseball season, and each year, the Saint Paul Saintsbullpen gets a visitor from the pigpen.  This year it’s a piglet named Slumhog Millionaire, from a litter born at the Minnesota Zoo.  Slumhog joins the Saints’ past pantheon of punny porcines, including Boarack Ohama, Notorious P.I.G., and (forgive us) Kevin Bacon.

Before they all wandered away from their own plates and started eating off each others’ plates, Saturday-Kitteh-Sitter Robyn A. snapped this shot of Ezra, Bessemer, Caleb, Beulah, Phinneas, Elijah, and Jasper eating their lunchabuhls.

Owlette enjoys ear scratch!

No, that is not a typo. It’s a lil’ owl who loooooooves a good scratch. He even has a happy little cackle and his eyes roll back like Shark week. This whole scene belongs in a Japanese video game check it:

THIS JUST IN: Under-the-desk snuggling has moved to hallway

Extremely alert reader Fiv3r is reporting that Animal Planet is reporting the bobcat kitten was rescued near Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ranch, where it was dehydrated and near death.

“They rescued the fawn during last week’s wildfire. Although wild animals, especially of separate species, are never placed together due to regulations, in this emergency situation, they had no choice. During the mayhem of the fire, they were forced to put animals anywhere they could, since they had run out of crates large enough for the fawn. The kitten ran to the fawn, and it was instant bonding.”
