I hope someone has told him it is a possum and all possums are protected in Victoria under the provisions of the Wildlife Act 1975. They are definitely not “house-trained”!

FUNNY FRIDAY

Cah Cah Cah!!

Cah Cah Cah!!

 

I read in the Sydney Morning Herald that approximately 200 dead crows had been found near Broken Hill, NSW and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the crows and he confirmed, to everyone’s relief, the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu!  However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, and only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

The Broken Hill City Council then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine the disproportionate percentages for truck versus car kill.  The Ornithological Behaviourist determined the cause very quickly.

When crows eat road kill, they always set up a look-out Crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.

His conclusion was that all the lookout crows could say “cah” but none could say “truck”!

 

Vote 1 Feline Pawty

A few of you may have heard that on January 30, 2013 the Australian Prime Minister, Miss Fanta Pants (aka Julia Gillard), called a Federal Election to take place on September 7, 2013. Australians will be so sick of the campaigning by Miss Fanta Pants and the Opposition Leader, Mr Budgie Smuggler (aka Tony Abbott), that the Feline Pawty lead by the ever so handsome, Mr Bumpy Cat, will romp into power with a humongous majority.

Mr Bumpy is presently calling on all members of the Feline Pawty (including all Australian Honorary anipals) for Candidates … see Preselection.

My hoodies have elected me to stand in the “blue blood” seat of Goldstein in Victoria which is presently held by Mr Bojangles (aka Andrew Robb). My campaign strategy will be revealed in coming months.

 

Dont you love the poster that our fearless leader Mr Bumpy made for me?

Just wanted to let you know that, yesterday on Twitter, I met Alex Harris (@koalatracker). Thank you so much @petsarefound for the introduction to this lovely lady! *whispers* how about following both these twitter accounts?

I’ll let you explore Alex’s webpage Koala Tracker but (believe me!) its worth a visit. I joined immediately (its FREE!) and captured the above picture which shows the devastation our recent floods and fires have caused our Koala population.

I’m going to ask Uncle Hugh to become a Koala Tracker as he lives in the bush!

Why I love Keely & Thomas!

The Archer Fambly

It is so very simple to explain why I love these two wonderful furiends (@AngelKeely and @PuppyNumber7) – they are kind, generous and loving. When I was sad and lonely they gave me a home! They work their butts off to help anipal charities and causes on Twitter. We have shared so much laughter (and many tears) and, at times, seem to be inside each others heads – so often we tweet the exact same words! Their love for each other and their pups @ourWinniePup and #ourChloePup is a joy to behold!

Having somewhere to go is what we call home
Having someone to love, who loves us in return, is what we call family
Having both is incomparable

 

I pass this Award to the bloggy of my dear furiends and fambly Keely & Thomas

Save our Koalas

I know we make cute jokes about the Australian Koala and his qualifications to be known as a bear.

Nor are we sending them off to bear training camps

 

In all honesty we are proud that they are definitely not bears but are arboreal herbivorous marsupials native to Australia – The Koala

The simple facts are that Koalas are rapidly disappearing from the Australian landscape…

There are estimated to be less than 100,000 koalas remaining in Australia, considerably less due to the recent disastrous Victorian bush fires and Queensland floods.

Koala after treatment for severe burns :(

It is incumbent on us to protect those koalas and endangered species remaining not only for our growing tourism industry but for future generations. Currently, Koalas are predicted to become extinct in the wild by 2020.

Considering we are in the Sixth Mass Extinction of all species, it is imperative that we understand that human survival depends on biodiversity.

The Wildlife Protection Council needs your financial assistance to help us protect our Koalas. An excellent webpage outlining all the problems facing Australia Wildlife.
