Amazing Flying Pigmonkeys

Mostly cats. Occasionally some other stuff. But mostly cats.

Return of Caturday.

And on Saturday, there were cats.

Seasonal rabbity update.

Because it has been too long since the world last saw Misu belly :-)

A Russian zoo is home to a unique animal - the liger. It is half-lioness, half-tiger. Mother Zita is pictured licking her one month old liliger cub 

I DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU CALL IT LOOK AT HER HAPPY LITTLE FACE IN THE LAST PICTURES SHE’S SO PROUD OF HER LIL CUB AND HER SPOTS AND SHE’S GOTTA BE TOUGH MOMMA WHEN THE BABY’S LOOKING BUT AS SOON AS THEY TURN AROUND, SHE’S LIKE,

I accidentally rabbited yesterday.

Well, after seeing this face, how could anybody resist? Introducing Lily (Kanilandia’s “Gimmel”), because apparently all our bunnies are getting garden names. She’s a teddy dwarf, which is a sort of dwarf angora breed (separate from the lionhead) that’s become rather popular down towards Germany. They’re practically non-existent in Finland at the moment. However, I have a feeling there will be more than one of these on our farm, at least. She’s super friendly and calm, so will probably be clocking more indoor time than the bigger bunnies. The cats seem very confused as to what this strange tribble-creature is ;-)

For waxjism and teaandmisanthropy, who have a hedgehog thing. I saw the hedgie again in late June, just ambling through the freshly mown lawn in broad daylight like he owned the place. Don’t know if it was the same one as last year, but he seems pretty comfortable and we’re glad to have them around :-)

Because people have been asking how Daisy and Basil are. They are… fluffy. The evenings are starting to get cooler now and their coats have filled in to keep them toasty. They’ve been outside in the pens munching nonstop on fresh greens for the past 3 months and will probably get very upset when we have to bring inside for the cold season :-(

The last two pictures are from when they first went out in May, after the spring wool harvest. You can see that Daisy (right) mostly shed hers, so has an even-looking guard coat left. Then there’s Basil (left), who was such a train wreck (seriously messy eater) that I had to give a military buzzcut to more than half his body. He was hopping around with a bare pink bunny butt for a good week ;-) As you can see, it filled in nicely!

Look what just ran by outside our window! Nyctereutes procyonoides, a raccoon dog! :-D

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a bunny update, huh? These are actually from a month ago, in early September. Still, you can see how much Daisy and Basil have grown in three weeks or so between my last post and this one. Will try to get some current pictures to show how much fluffier they are now!
