The Job Starts at Home

Sender-Inner Heather C. says:

I was standing in line at the local shelter waiting to get a volunteer application, some lady dropped [these kittens] off. She found them in an abandoned house and was surrendering them to the shelter.

She continues:

Upon learning that they would be euthanized that day (since they are too young for the shelter staff to take care of at 3 weeks) she turned around to me, a complete stranger, and begged me to take them. And of course, how could I say no?!

There are no Small Parts, Just Small Actors

Hi, my name is Biggums, and I’m here to audition for the lead in “Conan the Barbarian”.

Biggums is a fighter, Christina R.

Roger Hummingbird, You’re Clear for Take-Off

It seemed Roger flapped a little too hard recently and unfortunately ended up with a broken wing. But never fear – Roger is now clear to hover next to petunias once again, thanks to the professional care of our sender-inner, K-riz.

(And the constant stream of inspirational lyricist, Mr. Mister, didn’t hurt, either.)

Bye-bye, birdie, K-riz.

You’re Trembling Now, Aren’t You?

“Ooh, I’m scary!  Better not mess with me, because I’m baaaad! See how tall I am?  That’s not hair sticking up, that’s 100 percent pure pulverizing kitty muscle that you do not want to tangle with!  You’re scared now, aren’t you?  Right?  Aren’t you?”

Phyllis P. says: “I got Buckley from an in-home rescue service.  He was one of 15 kittens and their mother was run over by a car when they were all just babies.  They were all bottle fed.  I got him at 6 weeks old and he’s doing great.  He’s meeting his first non-family cat in this picture.”

I have a question for you

Do I make you proud?

Yes Jorden C., you do.

Is this the line for the milk dropper?!

HEY!

K-riz sends in pics AND rehabilitates them.

Ehhhhn!

According to the Daily Mail:

Seven months ago Sisso damaged his right wing and although he has been gradually nursed back to health he is unable to fly. Before the harness came along all he could do was flap aimlessly on the ground.

See another sweet pic and read more over at the Daily Mail. Kudos to Cuteporter Jamie R. for this one.

The Amazing Flying Foxes

If you were expecting actual flying foxes – sorry, but we have something better – bats!

And may I introduce you to Beatrice, our resident gossip hound:

These tiny freaking gigantic flying foxes are a type of bat vital for the pollination of tropical plants, yet they’re listed as “vulnerable” on the endangered species list.

These two guys come from the Tolga Bat Hospital that rescues, rehabilitates and releases hundreds of bats that would otherwise die. They also provide lifetime sanctuary for many bats that are too severely injured to return to the wild or have been retired from zoos.

What’s Next on the List? Bo-Bo Ski Watten Totten?

Really? This is how you choose to spend our time? You have the rare opportunity of not only catching, but also holding a hummingbird, and you want to declare a thumb war?

According to sender-inner Hana O.: “My classmates discovered this young hummingbird who had fallen out of his nest and immediately a rescue team ensued! He was a bit of an inexperienced flier, but in the end he made his way back into his tree.”

Welcome Aboard the QteTerrier2

Well, hey there. Hi. I’m your Captain, Captain Stubbing. I’m here to make your cruise as enjoyable as possible. Perhaps we’ll meet on the Lido Deck for a fruit cocktail? Maybe you’ll join me in the Starlight Lounge to watch Charo? Or better yet, a night cap in my quarters…?

It may not be Acapulco, but I’m still my own floating island.

Has Chowda met Gopher, Amy B.?
