Hi everyone! I’ve been working 1 million shifts at Blackbird and am still slowly settling into the new house so I’ve been pretty badly neglecting this.

But now I’m back!

About a week ago I accepted a veterinary nurse position at the PAWS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic and I’ve already had to bleach two rooms of ringworm isolation and I’ve taken in two snot lockers for fosters and I can honestly say I’M SO EXCITED TO SMELL LIKE ACTUAL POOP ALL THE TIME AGAIN!

These two heart-breakers are Dean and Jerry (named after Martin & Lewis, the stooge and the cool guy) - skinny, congested, and sleepy kittens with raging upper respiratory infections. They’ve made it through three sniffly nights and have really great appetites but we’ve still got a lot of antibiotics and probably some open-mouth breathing left to go.

When they reach around 2.5-3 months and are healthy enough to be neutered they’ll be looking for homes together!

Pit Bulls Are Not The Enemy →
Pit bulls are subjected to an almost unimaginably cruel world, in which they are subjected to every kind of violence — and then, at the end of it, are euthanized in shelters at shockingly high rates, because families are afraid to bring them home, landlords won’t rent  to the families who do bring them home and localities impose restrictions on their ownership, despite ample evidence that these restrictions do nothing to improve public safety.

The newest comprehensive examination of dog bite statistics, put out in December by the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, looked at what factors tended to lead to fatal dog bites. These include a dog not being spayed or neutered, dogs being “kept isolated from regular positive human interactions,” away from the rest of the family, and dog owners having histories of abusing their pets.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, and maybe not even so far away from where you live now, there lived many animals in a deep, green forest. And they lived in relative harmony, except when one animal was eaten by another animal as sometimes happens in a deep, green forest. But that was appreciated as the story of life and death. And the continuation of life. And in the cycle of things, as they are and as they are meant to be, there was equanimity and peace…

Until one day, a fire raged and raged in the deep, green forest. And all the animals gave chase or took flight to try and save themselves from the inferno. While running away they felt huge despair at the thought of what they were leaving behind… their only home.

When they reached a safe distance some of the animals stopped to look at the raging fire, and noticed a small spot of red in the blue sky, circling back and forth, from a clear, cool lake to the blazing, burning forest… What was it? It was the red-throated hummingbird. And in her beak she ferried a few small drops of water to try to stop the fire. She flew back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth again.

The animals below looked up in amazement. The lion looked up, the elephant, the badger and the bear. They all looked up at the red-throated hummingbird in disbelief.

And the lion roared: “Red-throated hummingbird, what do you think YOU are doing up there with your one drop of water?”

Undeterred by the impossibility of it all, the little hummingbird said: “I am doing what I can.”

The world is on fire.
