I Shall Überleeck You

“Oh, yeah… a little more to the left… yesssssss, that’s the spot… now, do the ears… and the other one… ohhhh, that’s the ticket… now, nibble my neck while humming the National Anthem of Uruguay… the album version, not the single… ohhhh, you know what I need, baby…”

Was it good for you, Meghan H.?

You gotta love emails like these floating around the IntarWebs. Words and Images sent in by Monica H., from an email forwarded to her:

“These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not survive, and these three were not doing very well.”

“Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that is in the rehab center. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in—even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.”

ATT00115

”Then suddenly, there were only two bunnies in the cage. To everyone’s surprise there was the tiny bunny under Noah’s wing sound asleep! That little bunny rabbit had crawled through the cage, preferring a featherbed!”

ATT00112

“Now, they are all together and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah’s feathers, he carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then they snuggle. When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak! It is a beautiful and amazing thing to see.”

Happy Surrogate Male Guardian’s Day

Traditionally in June, we honor male parents, guardians and caregivers with a special awareness day to celebrate the pro-active, nurturing support they provide.

Many male caretakers are choosing nontraditional family paradigms, such as this Rottweiler, who coexists in an adoptive interspecies relationship with this wolf cub.

“Hammi-sol”

Sender-Inner Llara P. says: “This is our office hamster Doodle (real name Petunia, but he turned out to be a BOY!) and he likes to nap in my camisol, i.e. “hammi-sol”.”

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.”

THIS JUST IN: Under-the-desk-snugglin’

According to Lemonade Poem; “The Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara, CA last week caused these two to take shelter together. The fawn is 3 days old and the bobcat about 3 weeks. The fawn came from somewhere in the fire and the bobcat from Carpintaria. They immediately bonded and snuggled together under a desk in the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office for several hours.”

The Mother of All Encores

This may not have been our first-ever Interspecies Snorgling post, but it’s definitely a CO Classic: Holy inter-species bonding!”
(Also, have you called your mother yet?  You know, she’s done a lot for you.) ;)

Here’s the deal. “Finnegan” the squirrel was found under a tree in Renton WA. Finnegan was brought to the home of Debby “Sure I’ll take care of him!” Cantlon for care. Meanwhile, Debby’s papillion pup “Mademoiselle Giselle” (I am not making this up) decides she can help out too, and brings Finnegan in with her new puppies. Finnegan proves to be one sweet squirrel, riding mosh pits of puppies and cuddling with his littermates.

WHEEEEE

Riding the puppy mosh pit
