Rolling in Snow
Hey, Cameron here, and I have a protest! A couple of posts ago, Percy introduced himself as the handsomest dude on the Funny Farm. Excuse me, but who elected him? Buddy, Sam, Rusty and I don't remember any ballot, so scratch Percy off as the handsomest. He has competition! Tough competition. Enough said on this subject for now.
I have a fun video for you today. I lived outside for a while as a kitten but it was summer so I've never played in the snow. And that's okay. I moved in here in the fall because I didn't like living outside. I wanted friends and family. Well, actually I packed my bags and moved in because of Merci. She used to drag Jan over to visit me on their walks and tell me how great the Funny Farm was.
Buddy, Merci and Sam are wimps. They don't like to go outside in the rain, cold, heat, or snow. Unless they have to walk Jan. Getting her wet is fun.
So I was kind of surprised to find that some animals actually like playing in snow. Even a baby elephant. Here, see for yourself.

' Figuring out where to send an animal rescue/welfare donation, and/or deciding where to spend your valuable volunteer time may pose a difficulty for some animal-lovers… With ‘this blog’ purporting “this” about “that darn Humane Society,” and another news outlet claiming “that” about “those nut-jobs at PETA,” how in the heck are you supposed to know if a group is genuine, trust-worthy and sticking to the rules?'
The above is quoted from a post, What are reputable animal welfare organizations in the US? by Jaime Lynn Smith (of Thoughts for Paws blog) post You might agree or disagree with her assessment, but it does pay to do some research on an organization before donating. Just click the link to read the rest of her post.
Jaime's article is on a pet social site (not a blogging pet social site) called PetBytes. We had an email from PetBytes a while back inviting us to sign up but we haven't been able to spend time checking them out to see what they're about. We wondered if they're on the line of Dogster/Catster since we noticed they give points. We wonder if any of you know anything about the site, perhaps have even joined? Is it worthwhile joining or just reading some of the posts, such as Jaime"s? We'd be interested to hear from our readers on this.
And don't forget to check out Coco's auction at Furriends of the CB, if you haven't already. At least once new item has been added since yesterday. Coco looks so cute in her fashions, Jan had some fun with the graphics.
Hope you all have a great weekend. Jan is kicking us off the computer again. Says she has lots to do. Uh-huh, as if we don't!
