It sounds as though the flowers were put to good use. LOL! I found two kittehs wrapped up in the warm blankets, so the heat went to good use as well, and I thank you. I'm sorry you've have no luck seeing the cubs on cam. They are so much fun to watch. I hope you can catch them at least once. I also hope you found some azaleas for your mom. It's great that you support groups that help wildlife. Their work is so very important. I will be sponsoring the Critter Cams on May 24 in honor of Buttercup's hatch day. He's a black vulture who can't be released and goes to special events to help educate people about the needs of wildlife. I'm one of his sponsors, so I thought that would be a good day to sponsor the cams, something I do from time to time. This gif shows Buddy doing his dance for his handler (he does the dances of his own volition to show his affection): http://cheezburger.com/8181023232 I hope you had a great weekend. Here are more spring flowers for the bois to share with their friends.

Now there are two owlets with Papa G'Ho (Great horned owl, hence G'Ho). They are on Cam 2 and usually are sitting on the box at the right rear of the flight cage. All three of them pile up there together, so sometimes it's hard to see the third one. Papa is usually on the right (as you face the box) with the first owlet beside him. The third one is in the rear, but you have to go to full screen and watch a bit to see that one move a little to detect him/her. The bears are not always in view of the cams, but if you get lucky and catch them where they can be seen, you will be greatly entertained. They are on Cam 1. I could watch them for hours if I only had the time. I'm glad Bop Bop's story has a good ending. Most vets are not animal rehabilitators and don't know all that much about wild animals. In the states one can call places like the Wildlife Center and get information about what to do, and they can determine species with a cell phone photo. They do everything they can to educate people about not trying to care for wild babies (unless they are licensed rehabilitators). They have a directory of those across the state and beyond and send folks with wild creatures to them if there isn't a medical condition involved. If the critter is sick or hurt, they arrange transportation to the Center. Several of the bear cubs they have right now were confiscated from private citizens trying to care for them. They will do their best to teach them to be bears and be wary of humans. The older surrogate sisters help a lot with that. The Center pioneered that method, and now it's used across the US. We didn't flood here, but the yard still has water standing in multiple spots, and more rain is coming this weekend. It's almost impossible to mow the grass, and there is no sign of any letup of the frequent rain. I'm glad Yogi and Possum are still around. It's a great situation that you can have five tabbies while feeding only three. Everyone thanks you for the great tummy rubs. We are sending you some blooms of wisteria and azaleas all safely packed in a strong plastic tube and a vase securely covered in bubble wrap. Here they come.

From Emerald63: Sylvia submitted one of your LOLs for HistoricLOLs. It is now in our favorites collection. It's this one: http://cheezburger.com/8145165568. My husband laughed heartily when he saw it, lol. And I'm given to understand Justin Timberlake, when asked how married life is, replied that it teaches you a few very important things... like just how much it means to put your dirty dishes in the dish washer. Or not... On a personal note - I wanted you to know I didn't directly send my own May Day greeting to you because I felt it might be rubbing the coming winter in the faced of my friends Down Under. I meant no personal slight by it. :D

I'm glad you are enjoying watching the cams at the Wildlife Center. Have you been watching Cam 2? That is the one with the older great horned owl with an orphan owlet. Now a second orphan has been added. The older owl is Papa G'Ho. He came to the Wildlife Center with an injured wing and couldn't fly. The vets repaired the wing, and he can fly now, but he can't fly silently. If they were to release him, he would starve because silence is necessary for him to catch prey. The staff recognized that he has a nurturing nature and found out he is great at raising owlets and teaching them all they need to know so they can be released when they are old enough. At first he was known as Mama G'Ho because he was so good with the young ones. The only way to tell a great horned owl's sex (other than watching a pair mate or seeing one laying eggs) is by DNA testing--expensive. Several years after his arrival, the University of Virginia took an interest in finding out his gender and did the DNA test for the Center. To everyone's surprise, it was Papa G'Ho. The wildlife places you described sound great, and I hope they have done well and are still helping animals. The US is having rough weather--many killer tornadoes in the middle and deep South of the country. Now the system is upon us. We have had heavy rain since Sunday night, and tomorrow will be the day we could have tornadoes. We generally have some smaller ones several times a year in Veerginghere (have had them twice so far this year), but there can be some larger ones at times. Thank goodness we aren't in what's called Tornado Alley where they are huge and come frequently in warm weather. There is definitely going to be flooding in the state, but it shouldn't be too bad. We just hope we can get through Wednesday without severe weather. I hope Yogi and Possum will get a home together and have their own hoomins, but I'm sorry that you and K. won't get to see them anymore. Prudence and Woodee appreciate the hugs and send you gentle head bonks. I haven't delivered the skritches yet. LOL! That should be interesting. Hugs and wishes for the rest of the week to be good for you and tummy rubs for the bois.

Greetings, New Zealand Cats. It is I, Lursa. By now you know that the nip-fueled rocket is a no-go. As it is, my sisters and the other cats on the farm were more interested in rolling in the fuel than dominating the planet. I have moved on to a new project. I have discovered what the bipeds call a "drive shed", which is full of old farming equipment. I have enclosed the plans, copied from the male biped's bizarre illustrated films, of a large machine that will allow me to pilot it from within whilst stomping through bipedal settlements and creating much chaos and destruction. I am including plans for you as well. The stupid sneezy biped still does not know that I have her small computer. To the cause! Felis tutti dominati!
