how old is your little kitten? So tiny. Nice horses! It's great the black one ended up with you. What an adorable dog too!

Awe, that's so sad. How long has it been?
I have a some cats now that I love dearly...but...even after nearly 6 years since the loss of my "Lo-Kal-Kitty" I sometimes find myself with a lake in my eyes. I've never been able to make a connection with another pet like I had with him. He died at only 10 years old. I took a trip back home and after being gone for 4 weeks, found out he had laid in the windowsill day after day, night after night peering outside where he would meet me after work everyday. Then he quit eating 6 days after I left...and then he just shut down. He layed in my spot on the bed and wouldn't leave except to use the cat box. No one thought to tell me...I would have been on a flight back in a heart beat if I had only known he was suffereing seperation anxiety. He stayed in the vet hospital hooked up to feeding tubes for a bit, but succumed after 2 days to liver failure.
This is Kevin. My fiances Rainbow Lorikeet. He was found by some friends when he was still a chick...too weak to even eat. He is now such a lovely affectionate bird who loves to ride around on our shoulders and come with us down to the beach
And our cat Jyro. We got him from some family who didn't want the responsibility and were going to take him to a shelter He is a great cat. Very zanny and playful but doesn't like to be left alone.
And of course this isn't my pet but once a week I do volunteer work at a nearby marine bird and turtle hospital. It's one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. This is a pic I took a few days ago of one of the green sea turtles I just wanted to share...sorry for bad phone camera image
No worries, just happy to see a nice bird here. I used to take care of some of those and I miss the personalities. They are great pets.
The story makes it even better!
The turtle is cool, too! Good work volunteering there. Thank you.
They all have such unique personalities. Kevin is really cheeky and super intelligent. My fiance Rob has been able to teach him a few commands. He can't fly, his wings were too badly damaged when he was young so I used to get nervouse taking him out with us incase a dog spooked him and he leapt off our shoulders and got gobbled up or trambled on...the few commands he knows are good to make sure he will always hop (yes, they hop for those who didnt know ) back to us.
Heres a full body shot for you all
And I know he just looks like a boring ol' shubunkin but it's this little guy, China that started me on this whole aquarium journey. From a humble little 20 liter gold fish tank to a 3 ft fresh water tropical aquarium. My fascination with watching him sparked the passion for me
And finally another shot of one of the green seaturtles I work with. This is Boof...the first turtle I had the honor of caring for. When he arrived he couldn't dive because his stomach was infested with parasites. He was absolutely covered with barnacles and we had to tube feed him. Now he is a healthy weight, parasite free, able to dive and catch his own food!! He will be released soon
