This Tuesday Tale is a little different. I would like to start off with a tale about Judith. Please watch the video below.
This month teachers are celebrated and shown appreciation for what they do for children. Some of you know that I work around children and today Chipotle Restaurant was offering “Buy One, Get One.” A deal only for teachers. I came home with a veggie burrito and a veggie salad. Mmm, mmm, good! Dinner taken care of. 🙂
The tale of Happy, Chou, and Haïden told by Audrey
In my early blogging days when I was still an apprentice. In the days when I would spend hours staring at the computer screen or googling things, researching and using YouTube. I still do that but I’m more of an expert now. Anyways, in those days I was trying out the creation of a photo gallery and customizing it to my menu. I decided to make a photo shoot session with the friendliest being I know…please meet Happy.
This Tuesday’s Tale is not about a dog or cat like they usually are. This is a tale about a bat.
A bat was spotted where I work by some children. Now, keep in mind it is winter and, although we have had unusually warm weather, they are supposed to be in hibernation. This bat was hanging around a bench outside.
This is the tale of Blue. She lived on the beach following people around begging for affection until one day somebody finally rescued her.
I am a big fan of stories about rescued animals and I have been finding out there a lot of them. This makes me really, really happy! The part that makes me sad is that it seems there were so many other people who just “left her.” We would never do that if we saw a child on the beach alone. Why is it “ok” to leave a dog, that apparently has no “pet parent”, by itself on the beach? Continue reading →
I saw the story of Pearl on another blog and I thought it was so incredible, I just had to share it. It seemed easiest to reblog it.
Thank you so much Lesley for letting me share this story. Pearl is absolutely beautiful and it crushes me to think about what she went through before she made her way to you. Looking at these beautiful photographs of her, I can see she is now in good hands.
This is exactly why we have to start young in teaching children empathy towards animals and why we all need to be the voice for animals.
I hope everyone enjoys visiting Lesley’s blog and reading the story of Pearl. 🙂
I am amazed at all of the stories I have been able to use so far for my “Tuesday Tales.” Most of them are “rescue” stories. This warms my heart so much to know that even though there is way too much abuse out there, there are great people, like you, saving them and taking them away from the abuse.
You can find more tales on the “Tuesday Tales” page of my blog. If you would like to participate by sharing a story about your pet, you will find the details there also.
Pearl in this case is a nine month old stray kitten from Bulgaria. I first spotted her in a Facebook post entitled “poor tortured Pearl” and what I read simply broke my heart. She was adopted locally and her owner didn’t waste any time finding a disreputable vet to declaw the little scrap illegally. With nothing left to protect herself, she was then given to the children to play with. The kitten and a cigarette lighter. Having burned her ears, whiskers, tail and paws, terrified Pearl somehow ended up going over the balcony of their sixth floor flat, where they didn’t even bother to go and see if she was still alive. Instead, they rang her rescuer, who rushed over to find her lying in a pool of blood with a broken jaw.
Back with someone to care for her properly, she eventually made a good recovery, although her mouth…
Amy and I discussed her sharing a tale about one of her cats. Since she had written a post about one of them recently, we decided I would just share her story by reblogging it here on my blog. This is a great post that includes pictures and a video. Love it!
Thank you Amy for sharing your story with me. I am SO happy Cuddles ran out of the barn that day for you guys to find. I wonder why he became aggressive after being so cuddly?
I also believe in brushing our pet’s teeth, so I would love to hear what kind of tool you use to get the tartar off of his teeth!
This tale was shared by Amy, a fellow blogger who participated in “Tuesday Tale-What Is Your Pet’s Tale?”. If you would like to participate, click the “Tuesday Tales” tab on my blog for details.
(The tale of Cuddles is also posted on the “November Tuesday Tale” page)
This video of Cuddles is something that happens every day. You can hear from my voice a bit of exasperation because just as I have completely cleaned up in the kitchen for the morning (every morning), in walks Cuddles for more food. *sigh* And yes I know I recently posted a video of Cuddles and Rusty playing. What can I tell you? I have no control of what is going to happen especially with these cats. At least in this video you will see another side to Cuds Cuds. I do have several more videos that I plan on posting of other cats that live in this house too. (smile)
Cuddles is persistent and consistent if nothing else. When he wants to eat, nothing is going to get him to stop to do whatever it takes to get me to feed him. He is a 12-year old male rescued barn…
