Catching Up

This is kind of a mish-mosh of things I think are important.

First of all, here is a great post from @InformedFerret. I thought I linked to this before but can't see where I did, so I'm belatedly linking now! Though the post is about ferrets, I think it's very important and applicable to ALL pet owners/lovers and brings up important issues we need to consider and be aware of. Education and responsibility are key!

Second, you may have noticed the Pierre chip in to the right here. Our friend @MarioDaCat wrote a post explaining our pal @PierrethePoodle is a bit unwell and could really use a bit of financial help to get better. Please consider chipping in. Also, adding the ChipIn to your blogs or linking to Mario's post via twitter would be a great help as well.

Thank you for taking the time to check out these Things That Are Very Important To Me. Until next time..!

I Got My CapyCoppy!

Ever since reading Capyboppy by Bill Peet when she was little, Girl wanted a capybara. So when we joined twitter and met @CaplinROUS she was super excited. Caplin's website, has all sorts of great pictures and blog posts and answers to questions about capybaras. 

Caplin the Capybara passed away quite suddenly on January 4th. Everyone who knew him was deeply saddened and his owner is devastated.

But you can have your own little Caplin--or capycoppy, anyway--and by purchasing one, you help Caplin's person set up a charity in Caplin's name, the ROUS Foundation for Capybara Veterinary Medicine.

Good Bye, Sweet Piru

I found out that my sweet, dear friend @PiruloFurry passed away in his sleep this morning.

He was very loved by his family and his Twitter pals. I know that he and Inigo Flufflebum are likely a big hit with all the ladycats OTRB with their most angelic of angel cat faces, but for now I am just very sad.
