Day Interrupted…..

Bobcat

Bobcat

It was a normal Saturday….Ok, as normal as they get at this zoo, LOL! George was outside washing the car and taking care of the yard, the cats were all up to their usual catnaps and tricks, and the parrots….well…..were up their usual NOISY tricks when the phone rang. It was one of our Rescue and Transport volunteers, who was bringing an injured hawk here for triage and further transport to Liberty Wildlife. Our plans were all put on hold while we waited for the patient. The hawk arrived with a broken wing, apparently shot. Fluids were administered, a temporary wrap done, then another kind volunteer transported the beautiful Red Tailed Hawk on to Liberty Wildlife, where she is recouping nicely. It is wonderful that these folks will give up a part of their day off to transport an injured being over 100 miles to get medical attention… make that 200 round trip. A great big THANK YOU goes out to all of the R&T volunteers who drive so many miles to rescue wildlife!!!!

Here Kitty, Kitty...

Here Kitty, Kitty…

Ripley , the African Grey has been visiting, so we have had a regular plethora of  parrot vocalizations…..luckily, I was not painting a bird while Ripley visited, so we did not have any strikes from the bird models or court cases involving wage negotiations. I think Ripley is negotiating with his Parront for more out of cage time……but there are no spoiled birds in this house, so you did not hear that from me!

SO as you can see, I got the Bobcat background in and now you are going to get a TWO FER!!! Yes, I finished the painting today and Candy is telling me to step away from the painting, LOL! So here it is, hope you enjoy…..just be glad you are not a mouse!

Here Kitty, Kitty,……

Here Kitty, Kitty....

Here Kitty, Kitty….

Here is the progress on “Here Kitty, Kitty…”, it amazes me what a difference it makes when the eyes are in. Since I love to save them for last, sometimes, the painting just demands that the eyes go in. Maybe it is because it is a cat, LOL, they are pretty demanding! How would you like to be a little mouse about now…..No….don’t think I would either with this one stalking me!

One of our cats, Rusty,  was adopted from the local humane society, and was an outdoor cat when we got him. He demands to go out, but he is in confinement during baby bird season, so is not really happy with that. I am SURE some of my favorite knick knacks are going to be broken, but whatever it takes to get the baby birds out of the nests safely, LOL!  We all have to make sacrifices from time to time. Of course at this point, they have all been broken in previous years, so I am sure Rusty will figure out some other way to show his displeasure! Those orange kitties are so intelligent and full of personality!

The parrots are demanding lunch, so bye for now! Ok, Loki, I am coming, No Charlie, just because Joey Bird and Paco get junk food, does not mean you are getting it…what do you mean you are celebrity parrots too?!?!?!?! Rusty, please stop whining….no you cannot go out now?!?!??!?!? What do you mean I can trust you??!?!??!? ARGH!!!!
