The Idaho Weasel well a slight exaggeration

It seems this dear little thing real name of Princess toned down a tad to Skeeter and pictured here has many names not all nice ones either.

I tell you what she has a devilish look in her eyes if you look close enough as well.

In the main I gather she is named Weasel-Face, Dog-Butt, Mutley, and Flea-ball I guess she scratches herself a tad.

Seems she is the sole property of a guy known as the Geezer around or near Payette Idaho.

Also a Diva so yep she has to be temperamental as well; a heavy load for a wee dog to handle would make her temperamental I guess.

At the moment she is being looked after by a friend of mine; an easy touch my friend when it comes to animals since I have known her she has cats (I love cats) and get this at one time reared a squirrel known as Rocky the Rodent lol.

Aww Rocky now he is cute I reckon

What say you readers?

I do believe Rocky is still sighted on occasion as well, I never asked Rockie’s gender I guess it was male but in these shots of him he (I will call him he) sure does look hungry I think;

good job Skeeter was not around then as the attention Rocky got would definitely have upstaged her for sure

On another subject altogether now The lady in Question sells books and the site to buy them can be seen on here on the righthand side under links of interest a good idea to check them out if you do a lot of reading it is simply called Bonnie's Books and all info is on there.


I really got a smile out of this

Sent to me by a reader in the end I even commented on it I just could not help myself
The lady who sent me this lives in a very quiet country town in NSW Australia.
I have been to it and I guess it is rather a sleepy place but pleasant enough; well I thought so, in fact there was a time when I used to go there every 9 months or so; on business usually.
Back to the story about this cat; cats are very intelligent animals as I found out for a fact being a cat lover as well as a dog lover well ok any animal then.
I love lizards but I guess they are not everyone’s cup of tea.
To think this cat just hops on and off the bus just like a human really got me a chuckle I hope the Bus company Chairman does not read the article in question I mean he would want it to pay a fare.
This is good publicity for your company Mr Chairman so don’t even think about it.
I am more concerned about the name he has been given I mean his legal owner’s will have already named him; this will prevent a court case I hope; you got it MISTAKEN IDENTITY isn’t he cute these images courtesy of the British Daily Mail as is the story I have written it from.


Australian wildlife part five

I might concentrate on our feathered pals in this post as our birds here are really beaut all colours old world type of birds live here also.
Yep even the Magpie and I like magpie’s scavengers though they are.
They look just the same as the old world ones as well.
We have many sea birds of course but we also have lots that dwell inland ranging from the elusive large flightless cassowary that lives up way past me in north east Qld they are fruit eaters but will at times rob you of your fruit in your backyard; you have been warned.
The males bring up the chicks whilst Mom goes and gets herself knocked up again; this can happen several times strange; I did hear one once when up north in Townsville and it sounded like the sound of an approaching truck.
Much better looking than the Emu I think it has a blue head with a black body

It will hiss at you to try and scare you but lately I have been reading that some are getting quite bold so look out.

The Red-tailed Black Cockatoo is only found here and not to be mixed up with the Palm Cockatoo also black but without the coloured tail and which can also be found in New Guinea a neighbour of ours to the north.
We get white ones of course and also smaller Red/Grey ones commonly called Galahs; Galah is Australian slang for a foolish person as well
Pictured here is the Palm Cockatoo

And below is the Red tailed Black Cockatoo both beaut looking birds in my opinion.

To wind up here is a picture of a male Australian king Parrot a gorgeous looking bird if ever I saw one
