Last night, I realized that K had quite a few baby animals around the house and that I hadn’t posted any pictures.  So, without further ado, may I present the cute ones: The first picture is of a young opossum.  He and his siblings were in one of our outdoor enclosures, but he didn’t seem […]

It is official!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

I managed to get into the office a bit early this morning, which meant that I also got to leave a bit early (working as a federal contractor definitely has its perks).  The only reason I mention this is because I beat K to the mail and when I reached into the mailbox, there was […]

Back from Galts Gulch

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Yes, because I’m a mighty industrialist (aka Ubermensch) and the world will fall down if I stop writing. 😉  Okay, enough picking on the Randians.  Sorry for the radio silence.  A quick update: I got back from Des Moines last month and the next day had a board meeting for the non-profit I work with.  […]

William Wallace on wildlife releases

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

They may take our rehabilitation bins, but they’ll never take… our FREEDOM! On Sunday, K release some baby water turtles that she had been over-wintering.  Fortunately, we’re all of a mile from a good place at which to release turtles, Jordan Lake, so we didn’t have to drive too far. The big one in the […]

Wildlife rehab porn

It’s okay to look, I promise that there are no shots of me doing naked cage construction. *shudder* A couple of months ago, K got a call about a squirrel.  When the folks brought it over, it turned out to be rather small, but pretty far along in its development.  Well, that’s because it was […]

If you love something, set it free . . .

Monday, May 5th, 2008

About a year and a half ago (November 2006), the wildlife clinic K volunteers with transfered a water turtle (yellow bellied slider) to her. A cute little guy, just over 7 grams and about the size of a quarter. Yesterday, weighing in at 125 g and with a shell about 4 inches long, we released […]

Baby opossum pictures

Monday, April 21st, 2008

When it rains it pours. A month into spring and K hadn’t received any calls about rehabilitating animals until today when she got two. The first was about baby bunnies. K doesn’t take baby rabbits because too many of the stories end with “and then they died.” For example, “I was rehabbing some bunnies in […]

Possum pictures

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Back in August I wrote about a rehab possum that K was taking care of – she was very much a cutie.  I was looking through some pictures on the camera and realized that I had a few more of her.  Now that she’s all grown up and has been released, I thought folks might […]

are you my mommy?

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

you are my mommy Three or four weeks ago, K received a call about a baby possum. It seemed that the mother had died and the finders could only locate this one baby. They brought it to the house and K’s been raising it ever since. Apparently, she’s doing a good job. She (the possum, […]

More possum cuteness

Monday, July 9th, 2007

So K’s possums got a big brother recently: The whole family.  Note the little sores on the small one?  That’s where their whiskers are coming in. Here’s the biggest one by himself.  He needs a bit more enrichment, so he gets to hang out with us on occassion. I didn’t quite capture the possum tongue, […]
