Of Otters and Men

While I am no longer a zookeeper, I still volunteer at my old zoo as time allows. But here’s what I know from experience: During my years there, we would get several phone calls and emails each week asking us if we could take in a pet or care for an animal that someone “rescued.” Most often, we turned people away, not because of lack of want, but because we lacked space, time, money, and other resources required to provide these animals the care they would need. ...more

Keeping Pets (And You) Safe From Predators

 We lost Salt this weekend. When we decided to add chickens to our menagerie, I knew the risks. We live in a subdivision, but we also live in a forest. A river borders our property. And we've always loved spying wildlife in our backyard. Deer. Possums....more

Pudd'in vs Dad – A New Kind of War

Pudd'in vs Dad – A New Kind of War  Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.  ~Mark Twain...more

Animal Lover Part III: The Duck Wars (or Our Adventures in Omnivorous Pet Husbandry)

I originally published this post back in September, when no one read my blog but my parents and three personal friends. I am now re-publishing it because of the enormous demand for human interest blog pieces about ducks. I think it can really make a difference. (It can't, but you should read it anyway.) ...more
