reason #27 for staying off the computer after GB…

you think LOL Possums is a good idea: I’ll take some more pictures tomorrow, including a few of their new-ish, big brother. All of these guys are going back to their regular care taker Monday. They’ve been cute to have around, but I don’t think K is looking for more. MARTIN: We’re talking about the […]

Possum husbandry…

Friday, June 29th, 2007

K is taking care of some baby possums for the next week.  They are about 16 grams (1/2 oz) each.  Obligatory pictures included…           Piggies think burrowing and nibbling are fun. A guinea pig’s idea of fun differs a lot from other pet’s ideas of fun. The type of squeal has a corresponding […]

A couple of wildlife rehab notes

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

We finished the protective boxes we are going to use for cage cameras.  They are pretty basic with hinged tops (where the cameras are mounted) and plexiglass fronts to shoot through.  We’ve mounted them in the cages and run the 300′ of wire back to the house.  K will need to angle them so they […]

It’s quiet, too quiet…

Friday, April 13th, 2007

I haven’t been so much with the blogging lately. For me, that is generally a sign that things are busy enough that I’m living life rather than blogging it [ed note: For all of you young readers, this is what is known as irony. When I have the most to say, I have the least […]

Life as the handyman for a wildlife rehabber

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

A few weeks ago, K took over the outdoor rehab of a pair of possums from a friend who was heading out of town.  One of the possums wasn’t doing so well and so they decided to split them up when her friend got back in town.  The very next day, the animal K kept […]

Luke’s eating again!

Monday, November 27th, 2006

I hadn’t mentioned this, but it had been about 5 weeks since Luke (the boa) last ate.  For the first three weeks, I didn’t worry.  He had just shed, he’s a snake and it’s winter, etc.  By week 5, I was getting concerned.  Last Saturday, two days after finishing his cage, which upped the daytime […]

Still need to finish the snake cage

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

The snake’s been in the cage for a few months, but I’ve held off posting pictures until I finished the last little bit – the frames around the window.  But as pointed out in this comment, it would be good to get some pictures with Luke in his cage.  So, hopefully I’ll finish up the […]

a quick update

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

I haven’t done much blogging recently, mostly, and somewhat ironically, it’s because things have been too busy to actually write about them. Sierra’s doing well. She and Darwin are getting along great. They’ll run around the yard, the house or even the couch, if given the chance. There is much mouth fencing. She’s still very […]

Release the squirrels!

Saturday, October 28th, 2006

I haven’t posted pictures of the squirrels in quite a while. Here are some from mid-September when they got big enough to move out of the aquarium and into a wire cage… Two or three weeks ago, we put them in the outside cage. Today we opened up the release door, we’ll see if they’re […]

just heard from K – the flying squirrel didn’t make it through the night. She’s guessing that the impact of the truck caused internal bleeding.  unfortunately, there wasn’t much she could do 🙁 Pochettino’s teams are built on physical intensity but he said that is impossible to replicate with the players so busy every summer.
