Summer in the Suburbs

It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day yesterday.  Nice breeze, no rain, big back yard full of family & friends & food.  Even the deck was in good shape, finally.

Sadly, though, not everybody was allowed outside... ;)

Oh, I hear you back there. Making “kitty kissing noises” trying to get my atten-shons.

Well go ahead and beg. Caturday was yesterday. You’ll never make it up to me.

...and on a LEASH, no less.  I ask you!

Ali B. Good luck — [shaking head]

OMG Look at this little guy’s legs!

So prosh!

You can almost see those legs do a little shaking…


Tea. Round Squirrel. Hot.

I’ve already had the Kitten High Tea. I’m going to try the Baby Round Squirrel this time.


It’s a little whiskery isn’t it?


This hot little cup o’ squirrel was served up by Sender-Inner Maureen K. who has more of her squirrely pics on Flickees.

Getting ready for Caturday

Pass me the Axe Shower Gel Bebe.

Bunnular Advice from a Farm Boy

“Being an old farm boy… and having raised rabbits for years when I was still back on the farm… I wish people knew that if they handle baby rabbits… the mom’s will often reject or kill them. The smell from the person’s hands often changes the identity markers for the mother.


My father… used to keep a bottle of Imitation Vanilla in the Rabbit house (about 200does.) When one mother would have a lot (up to 12) and another had only a couple… he’d rub the Imitation Vanilla on his hands… rub all the bunnies… rub the momma’s nose… The vast majority of the time, she’d take them. By the time the Vanilla wore off… they smelled like her. Probably more info that you needed.


Keep up the good work on the site. I just don’t know how you could approach this subject and save folks some heartache.

Good luck,
