I was never sure what my cats made of my glasses. Did they think my glasses are my eyes? Or did they see my actual eyes behind them? Did they see my slow blinks, or did they think I was staring at them with wide open eyes, and why the heck won’t I slow blink back at them like a civilized cat?
I have a feeling Princesses Mag is gonna do exactly what Bea did that time with Wicket and Jules.
Sorry if this was mentioned already, but I can’t always keep up with the comments.
The KCLS website shows that Georgia’s Sept 16 appearance at the Kenmore library has been canceled. Can anyone confirm this?
I was blessed with parents who are cool with having 3 kids and 0 grandkids. I have a few smug extended family who always told me I would change my mind, and/or “Sometimes kids happen whether you want them to or not.” (Can’t even begin to unpack the psychology behind THAT.)
And whenever someone tells me I’m selfish for not having kids, I just agree with them. It’s easier than arguing.
Hmmm… I was hoping the promo was an excerpt from a program that I could find on NPR’s website. I haven’t been able to find anything. :(
Ooooh! I have to go back and find that!
The benevolent countenance of yesterday’s final panel had me wondering about that…
There’s a saying—don’t set yourself on fire to keep someone else warm.
Coyotes are becoming adapted to cities and are pretty much there to stay at this point. Their range has spread from the southwest U.S. and Mexico to most of the continental U.S. and parts of Canada. They’ve also hybridized with wolves and domestic dogs, so they’re larger than southwestern coyotes. In this new reality, the only sure way to keep cats safe from coyotes is to keep them inside.
And the “circle of life” bit is a load of bull. Domestic cats were created by humans and introduced to continents and islands where native fauna can’t deal with them, and humans eliminated predators and created urban ecosystems that coyotes were happy to move into. An animal control officer should know better.
My sister lives near Howell and I knew about the nature center, but I’ve never had a chance to visit.
Blandford Nature Center in GR used to do wildlife rehab, and they often kept the ones that couldn’t be released to the wild (permanent impairments, imprinted on humans, etc.). They don’t do rehab anymore, but some of the old timers are still around, and they get new “animal ambassadors” from other rescue-rehab places.
They also have a small working farm, and a log cabin, and they make maple syrup every spring. A few years ago, they acquired the adjacent property—a closed golf course they’re in the process of restoring to its natural state.
