Eat More Tofurkey* Tomorrow~

tof…and maybe sponsor a Turkey today! For 28 years now, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has encouraged people to save a turkey at Thanksgiving through sponsorships that help them rescue animals and provide care for them at their sanctuaries, as well as educate and advocate for Turkeys and other farm animuhls everywhere.

(Top to bottom here, we have Turpentine with the Look Of Disapproval, Cecelia, and Martha.)

Turkey sponsors get a special Adopt a Turkey certificate with a color photo of and fun details about your new pal! Click here for deets! (The guys below wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, without them.)

Knew I Shoulda Made A Left Turn At Albuquerque

An Albuquerque, New Mexico kitteh named Spice went missing on Halloween…and ended up in MAINE. Check out this story!

(Arbroath.)

Let’s Roll, Eddie!

IMG_1563aAndy W. wrote in to tell us about his motorcycle sidekick, Eddie. “Here’s a couple shots of our Beagle/Jack Russell mix shelter dog Eddie. We’ve had him for about a year and a half and this spring I decided to see if I could get him to ride in the motorcycle sidecar. After working him up to it slowly, he’s now a total pro at it. And as you can see by his posing, he knows he is just so DAMN smoove when he’s rollin’ with his dad.”

“It was tough to get him to wear his Doggles…took me about 3 weeks of treating him constantly while he had them on. Now he understands that’s part of the deal. If we ride, he’s gotta wear ‘em. Also, he’s attached to the sidecar in two different spots on his nylon walking harness, one on the bottom of the sidecar and one on the roll hoop. He can move around freely but the attachments are adjusted so there’s no way he can jump out or be thrown out of the sidecar.”

Snorgle This!

Google Hangout With Pup #681

Pup 681 was the furry star of a Google Hangout along with guests from the Shedd Aquarium and Monterey Bay Aquarium. If you missed the 10a-10:30a PT live stream, here’s a replay below! (Just click the > thing, it’ll work.) #PupHangout.

Want more 681? In the video below, she’s having a major amount of fun in the pool, getting treats and playing with her basketball and toy lobster. And then a nice fuzzy rubdown afterwards. Dear Shedd Aquarium, would you hire me to do this? I don’t have any formal training. But I’m willing to learn. Today.

Mashable.

Caturday: Say Hi To Cindi

001Whoever said you can have too many Cat features on #Caturday? No one did, that’s who. Which is why this hour brings us the terrific kitteh, Cindi. Diane B. tells us, “She has such beautiful markings! Because she’s so stinking Cute, it’s a little easier to put up with her ornery-ness!”

output_mXVKom
“I got her from the local animal shelter. I don’t normally check their website (too many temptations) but I logged in and saw her photo and I was hooked. I’m a sucker for Calicos. I figured it must be fate and didn’t hesitate to adopt her!!”
