The Cat House on the Kings in Parlier, CA. is California’s largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. This non-profit group receives no government or public funding and depends on donations from animal lovers.
Hundreds of kittehs roam free on the protected property and live out their lives with safety and lots of love. (And of course some pupsters too.)

This is Schrödinger, a Siamese, a cat of striking beauty and distinction,
with exquisitely adorable moon diamond eyes, impeccable elegance, who is enchantingly mysterious and also happens to be altogether smokin’!
Only one problem. Schrödinger was a straggly, stray, street urchin. Yet, simply given a second chance, the transformation is nothing short of amazing. And here he is making his world debut on CO! Yesss.
“My siamese cat Schrödinger was a filthy, feral teenage cat when we rescued him a few months ago. Stinky, skinny, infested, hungry… Once we got past all the ear mites, fleas, worms, bad habits, he was a changed kitty and is now quite the handsome meezer and quite a ladykiller.” -Lottie P.
Spotted this Little Dude on the San Francisco Animal Care & Control FB. His name is Freddy of course, and they describe him as a “Frisky, Friendly & Fun Scruffimuffin!” If you’re in the Bay Area, stop by and see The Fredster if you’re on the lookout for a Little Friend!
UPDATE! Freddy just got adopted!!
Folks, this is Ellen. She is the first elephant seal pup of the season to arrive at California Wildlife Center, and she just arrived last Thursday. (Photo sent by KB.)
That photo debuted on our CO FB page and was spotted by Alma A., who had some photos of her own to share with us. “Here are some pictures that I took while volunteering for the California Wildlife Center (CWC) in 2013. That year, we were able to rehabilitate 6 elephant seal pups that came to the center sick and malnourished. It was a great experience for both the staff and the volunteers involved in this project.”
Folks, this one is gonna keep you on the edge of your seat. Don’t worry, everyone is safe! Whew!

Wouldn’t you like to be a Friend to Joey? Adam Cox of Wakaleo Animal Channel sent these photos and video in, and explains, “I recently took a trip to North Queensland, Australia because I heard they had some rare species in care. These are Tree Kangaroo Joeys! These guys are super elusive in the wild and very hard to find anywhere else so I had to go and see them for myself. Their caretaker Margit is an adorable woman who’s passion in life is animals. The 2 animals in the video have had a rough start in life losing their mothers but Margit is intent on getting them healthy and ready for the wild.”

Knitters of the Internet! The Penguin Foundation needs you! Well, they need your Sweateuh! If a penguin gets caught in some type of oil spill, they need Little Sweateuhs to keep warm. Back in 2011, they had enough Sweateuhs. Now they need more of ’em. Let’s hear what Lyn Blom has to say- she is the receptionist at Phillip Island Nature Parks in Victoria, Australia. (Interview with host Red Symons from 774 ABC Melbourne Breakfast– and they call ’em “Jumpers.” Same diff. G’day.)
