ResQte Of The Week (Caturday Edition): Gene Wilder

photo 1 (2)“I work at a vet and we were brought two baby birds found in a parking lot. Gene Wilder (shown here) seemed perfectly healthy. Our wildlife rescue won’t accept song birds, so I decided to feed him/her myself and release him/her in a bird friendly environment. Starting at sunrise, I fed Gene a mixture of mashed worms, baby bird supplements, and a liver based food every 40-60 minutes until sun down.”

“When Gene started fluttering around and exploring, I knew it was time for the next stage. Song birds have a lot of instinct and after being released, Gene learned to catch bugs on his own, though he still occasionally comes up to us begging for food. Gene was a lot of work and I’m happy he/she did well, but I don’t recommend or encourage people to take and raise wild animals.” -Heather B.

GAAAAAAA New Porcupette In Seattle?

Porcupette_5.20.15_PISTO_4My first reaction in seeing this image from Kelly M. is “No way is that real” or maybe even, “Gotta be a GUND.” Well, he (or she) is VERY real, born just seven days ago. Must leave for Seattle now.

Know Your Mythical Forest Creatures

When traveling the frozen woods of Norway, beware of Trekronhjort, the mythical three-headed stag. According to legend, Trekronhjort will grant a wish to anyone who encounters it; a remarkable 97 percent of the time, that wish is “please don’t rip me to pieces with your antlers.”
