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!”

“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!!”


Save Those Gibbons, Darn It!

unnamedIntrepid Cuteporter KB took these great photos and writes: “These photos were taken Wednesday at the Gibbon Conservation Center in Santa Clarita, CA. They house the rarest group of apes in the Americas, currently 43 gibbons all are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species list with one species listed as critically endangered. They educate the public about Gibbons and the threats to their survival, and the actions the public can take to protect them.”

“They advise and assist rescue centers, zoos and veterinary universities all over the world about gibbons. They also support field conservation projects in the countries Gibbons call home – Southeast Asia, South China, Bangladesh, and Northeast India.”

“It’s all about saving the Gibbons! Swinging from tree to tree, Gibbons are often described as acrobats of the rain forests.

Q: How do you save an orphaned bebbeh animal? A: Keep them warm!

unnamed (1)
The non-profit site Baby just launched to donate incubators to volunteer homecare wildlife rehabbers who save orphaned bebeh animals in every community across the country.

Bebeh Beavers, Otters, Sqwerls, Birds, ‘Munks, Buns, Possies, Skunklets, Ducklings, and more.

If they don’t have a mom to keep them warm, an incubator is the next best place to rest their adorbs little noggins…

…so they can grow up healthy and strong…and make it back to the wild where they belong.

unnamed (5)
Baby Warm raises money for incubators- that’s all. Each incubator will be used for 10-12 years to keep hundreds of babies warm and healthy.

You can see on the site that there are 12 rehabbers listed at any given time and you can see what kind of animals they care for, read their story, and pick one to help out and chip in toward their incubator.

Congrats To The Class Of 2014!

Earlier in the year, the New York ASPCA opened up a specialized nursery for Leetle Kittehs that were too young to make it on their own. On Tuesday, they held a graduation ceremony for the furrballs, who now move on to the ASPCA Adoption Center where they’ll be ready to go to a new home! Wanna donate to the ASPCA? Here’s how.

And BTW- do we know who graduated Phi Beta Catta?
