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.

[Hey! Kids! Walk around that storm sewer. Hop up here with the rest of us- Dairy Queen is just one more block down the road.]

The Moment of Truth

This was it, Henrietta thought. A fight to the death. It’s either him or me. Survival of the fittest. Two hens enter, one hen leaves. If I back down now, everyone at the henhouse will call me… dog.

A-bok-bok-bok-alypse Now

I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one: a one-way trip up the river into enemy territory, where Charlie lurked behind every tree, along with his cousin Dave. My assignment: track down a renegade commander loose somewhere in the jungle. Nothing could prepare me for the horror that lay ahead, but I knew I could never stop until I had terminated… Colonel Sanders.

Sooooo…It’s Election Day In The UK

Paul P. sent us a video of this cute birdeh, and remarked “This robin’s standing for election, I think.” The fact that it’s election day….and the bird is chirping on the fence at the PM’s house…must have some connection.

UPDATE JUST IN: OK, we got an update from Paul. “That door is #10 Downing Street, London– the British equivalent of the White House where the Prime Minister lives and holds his cabinet. While the general election is on, the press are waiting, and spend their time filming the local wildlife..like this fox.”


“There’s also Larry the famous Downing St cat.” I love the British media.

I KNOW I Put The Receipts Somewhere!!!

[Yeah yeah YEAH, I gotta get ’em in by MIDNIGHT. Now, is that POSTMARKED by midnight? And is that midnight ET, CT, MT, PT- what? Or does the gov have to HAVE them by midnight? In that case, I’m a goner. Yes, I KNEW they were due today. They always are. And where’s my 1040EZ, anyway? Can Cockatoo’s get fined by the IRS?] From Concord Paul & Barb.
