Yesterday we welcomed this beautiful little girl into our family. Her name is Briar, she is approx 4 or 5 years. She is adjusting quite nicely after spending the first few hours hiding under my bed (inside the bed base…). Special thanks to Amy for being there and for helping with everything. xx
February 4th 2017 – Briar
Briar was just one of the many adult cats (and kittens and dogs and possibly bunnies) that they have at the Otago SPCA, all of which are in desperate need of warm and loving home.
January 8th 2017 – Starling – Sturnus vulgaris Linnaeus
I put some broken up pieces of bread out for the birds today (which isn’t really anything unusual for me, they’re so cute that I cannot resist feeding them) and I thought maybe if I am quiet enough this time I might be able to snap a nice picture. Not long after I put the bread out, the sparrows and starlings were munching away on the bread, seemingly happy. Until a big flock of seagulls (like 10 of them) came swooping in to steal the food! Don’t think I have ever had seagulls in my backyard in any other house I have lived in. Crazy! hehe!
