(earth shakes) Here come the Parakeetasaurs! Ka-boom …boom …boom …boommmm!

“My cat Moisie totally looks like a velociraptor… she’s channeling Jurassic Park, in a softer, fluffier, not-so-dangerous-if-you-blow-a-raspberry-on-my-tummy kind of way.” -Anne F., Small Animal Talk blog writer and veterinarian. Parakeets running in slow motion via YouTube

Secrets of Stage Magic, Lesson 5

There are two approaches to the classic “disappearing ice cube” illusion:

Method One: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for a few moments, long enough for concealed bird to pull ice cube into sleeve.

Method Two: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for at least three hours, then reveal that ice cube has been replaced by water.


Bruce O. gives away the trick: “How does our pet Dusky-Headed Conure named “Scoop” keep her cool in this kind of weather? By hangin’ out in her sack and lickin’ on an ice cube!”

Cinduckerella’s Glass Slipper

Bring forth the glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.

It’s OK, all you hot pink and fuchsia flowers, ain’t no shame in being outdone by Wally.

“We adopted Wally, the Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot, when he was 23 years old and had had two previous owners.  He will live well into his sixties and I have promised him a forever home. He has settled into our family of 2 dogs, 2 cats, a cockatiel, a tortoise and a Bearded Dragon. I love to place Wally in colorful settings around the back yard and take his photo.” -LuvFurArt.com artist, Kris B.

A Crow’s Tail

Cuteporter Annie K. found this on The Corvid Blog. The blog says their rather sneaky behavior of creeping up and giving their prey’s tail a good yank is just part of who they are…the little finks. Are you the guys who wake me up in my backyard every morning?
