And they take up marginally less space than a mastodon -- how I originally read it!  @GtHawk
True, but on the plus side, no tusks and you have the fun of the looks on people faces when they ask what kind of dog is that.

Oh you are a dear, @GtHawk , I've tried that. Even had a cousin who's a lawyer do a little pro bono work for me when my cat died, about a therapy dog. No go. The problem is I'm on a fixed income, and even though my rent is a lot, if I move to a dog friendly apt, it will be at least three to four hundred more. I can't afford that. I'd have to literally move about thirty miles or more away, which personally I don't care, or into Pennsylvania but I am two miles from an elderly mom
I feel for you, I am in a similar situation but it is one of the pluses of living in California that there are many dog friendly rentals and establishments and we were able to find a rental in a decent area with no restrictions or monthly pet rents.

Back when I ran food there was a little kitten living on the lot that I spent months feeding and talking to to gain her trust, she looked like a Ragdoll. One day I was finally able to grab her, put her in the car and rush her home, two weeks later she gifted me with seven little imps that looked like the video, various colors of course. She was the most expensive kitty I ever had, but also devoted like a dog, even played fetch.

A local station plays Hatari at least once a week. Burt what about another famous elephant movie?

Yup. Baby elephants are cute!

As cute comes with a cost sometimes: https://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/  (some VERY nice pictures!!!)

Been there. They look after baby elephants who've lost their mothers (usually to poachers, not always) and the odd baby rhino. The babies are so sweet - until they stand on your foot or decide you make a good scratching post  :tongue2:

Watching them with their adopted parents - it's both funny and sweet.

I don't know. If push comes to shove I could probably eat a mastodon.


Not mastadon, but mammoth:

More puppies

Oh my...I better stay away from this thread. I feel a huge case of puppy fever coming on, lol. The puppy breath is oozing thru my moniter.

This is the first time in my life I have been dogless. My last crew (6 big guys) all got old in the space of about 3 1/2 years and well...you know. The time leading up to that was so labor intensive I haven't jumped back in yet.  I would love  a pup, but usually get an older dog for all of the obvious reasons. Actually, I usually adopt whatever wanders on my property. So I guess when the good Lord decides what he wants me to have, I'll have it.

In the mean time, I have Crazy Cat to keep me company. She doesn't ask for much.

I hope you can get a kitty soon @Freya.

@berdie, I will after I recover from my next surgery January or February of next year. It wouldn't be fair to a kitty to be home alone for 4-6 weeks. It needs me.

I haven't had a kitty since December 31, 2013. I miss it. She's still with me, but not in a living way anymore.

They get a lot of lovin.  They came to us before they were weaned, and we fed them formula from syringes for several weeks.  They are quite sure we're really Mommy and Dadoo.  They're still a couple months from their "Snip and Chip."  Shots are all done.

They are lucky kitties to have you and Mrs. Liberty as parents.

Mrs. Liberty has a pseudonym.  You've talked to her, @Slip18 .

She's my Bifurcated Baby!  She was Miss Slip long before she became Mrs. Liberty!  She took the name from where Travis McGee parked his boat, Slip F18.

Good nom do plume.  I was a big fan of Travis.   Did you read the two sci-fi ones that McDonald wrote?
