Pound for pound, Barn Owls consume more rodents – often regarded as pests by humans – than possibly any other creature. ✿ We remind viewers that sometimes owlets may not survive - the parents will dispose of things in "The Owl Way" -viewer discretion is advised, this is nature and the "Owl way". ✿ ~ ✿ “Animals, like us, are living souls.

Xmas Foto Fun

Mom says I am a good girl, Santa!
This is ljmarine’s patient and forgiving Aussie, Mollie.
She gets new head gear for every occasion.
Merry Christmas Mollie, Santa agrees!

These 2 cuties are our moderator laboops Greyhounds. Speedy did not like her Reindeer antlers and was making a face at her!!

While Zo did not like the gift Santa brought her.

George W.  was moderator Yvonne’s 16 year old orange tabby when he passed away last summer in Missouri. He was a rescue from the animal shelter when he was 8 years old, and he lived for an extra 8 years. This was his favorite spot every year for Christmas,  because the lights were so warm. 

“I miss him so very much I LOVE YOU George W., and Merry Christmas my precious Kitty!!”

All dressed up in their Santa suits moderator bcook0315 birds, cockatoo Toulouse and African Grey Kobie sitting in their holly tree wishing all the way from Vegas a "Merry Christmas" to all!!
