Lemur Triplets Born on Folly Farm

Triple the Cute!

Lemur triplets born on Folly Farm
These little lemurs were born at Folly Farm zoo in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Black and white ruffed lemurs are an endangered species, and the numbers of them living in the wild are falling because their habitat is being destroyed.
But the cute creatures are doing well in Wales. There are already five adults living at the zoo, and the triplets are the second three to be born to their mum, Kirindy. Visit Folly Farm Zoo!

Update on Chunk! Prince Chunk actually.. Fat Cat Is Victim Of Foreclosure

Update on Chunk! Rags to Riches! I am glad Chunk was found safe but he should have never been just left on the street, as you can see a shelter would have taken good care of him. NEVER leave animals on the street, take them to a shelter and give them a chance at a good home!

Fat Cat Is Victim Of Foreclosure
'Prince Chunk' Falls 2 Lbs. Short Of World Record
Fat Cat Is Victim Of Foreclosure
BLACKWOOD, N.J. -- Turns out, the economy is the reason a 44-pound cat found lumbering the streets of New Jersey became homeless.

The Camden County Animal Shelter said the cat's owner came forward to say she had to abandon the tubby tabby because her home was foreclosed.
Shelter director Jennifer Anderch said the older woman recently lost her home and could not keep the 10-year-old cat, whom she called "Powder."
The shelter has been caring for the cat -- who became a local media sensation this week and was dubbed "Princess Chunk" -- since it was found on Saturday wandering the southern New Jersey suburb of Voorhees.
'Princess Chunk' and shelter volunteer Deborah Wright will be guests on News 4 New York today at 5 p.m.

It also turns out that the princess is a prince. A veterinarian who checked the cat Thursday on "Live with Regis and Kelly" determined it's a "he."
In a week with headlines about presidential politics, suicide bombings in Iraq and big baseball trades, the cat has also captured the nation's attention.
In fact, Anderch has changed her voicemail greeting to identify herself as "Chunk's publicist."
Wright says the cat eats normally despite its girth.

The largest tabby on record weighed 46 pounds, 15 ounces. That cat, who lived in Australia, died in the 1980s. The Guinness World Records has since dropped the category, fearing cat owners might harm their animals in an attempt to break the record.
Hundreds of people have called seeking to adopt the cat. Anderch's voice mail greeting says she's getting up to 15 calls an hour about the cat.
Powder was due to appear Friday on "Good Morning America" and closer to home later in August. She's scheduled to meet the public at the shelter's pet "adopt-a-thon" at a pet store in Cherry Hill on Aug. 17.

Growing Up Wolf

Wonder what their lil' howls sound like .. Woooo WOOO!

Gray wolf pups
"Seven gray wolf puppies debuted at the Red River Zoo in Fargo, N.D., mid June. A few pups, which showed signs of stage fright, had to be taken back indoors. But the litter is getting more comfortable in their new outdoor enclosure and with onlookers, according to a blog about the wolf puppies."

Golden retriever adopts tiger cubs at Kansas zoo

That's a wonderful mamma!

Golden retriever adopts tiger cubs at Kansas zoo
A dog at a southeast Kansas zoo has adopted three tiger cubs abandoned by their mother. Safari Zoological Park owner Tom Harvey said the tiger cubs were born Sunday, but the mother had problems with them.
A day later, the mother stopped caring for them. Harvey said the cubs were wandering around, trying to find their birth mother, who wouldn't pay attention to them. That's when the cubs were put in the care of a golden retriever, Harvey said.
Harvey said it's unusual for dogs to care for tiger cubs, but it does happen. He said he has seen reports of pigs nursing cubs in China, and he actually got the golden retriever after his wife saw television accounts of dogs caring for tiger cubs.
Puppies take about the same amount of time as tiger cubs to develop, and Harvey said the adoptive mother just recently weaned her own puppies.

''The timing couldn't have been any better,'' he said.

The mother doesn't know the difference, Harvey said. He said the adopted mother licks, cleans and feeds the cubs.
The Safari Zoological Park is a licensed facility open since 1989 and specializes in endangered species.
It has leopards, lions, cougars, baboons, ring-tailed lemurs, bears and other animals. It currently has seven white tigers and two orange tigers.
Because white tigers are inbred from the first specimen found more than a half-century ago, they are not as genetically stable as orange tigers.
The zoo's previous litter of white tiger cubs was born April 23, although one of the three has since gone to a private zoo near Oklahoma City.

Princess Chunk 44 Pound Cat found wandering the streets!

It's now a Not-so-wee Wednesday!

Princess Chunk 44 Pound Cat found wandering the street
A huge, white cat was found waddling in Voorhees, New Jersey, last Saturday and was turned over to the shelter whose volunteers nicknamed her Princess Chunk. She had to be weighted on the canine scales because the cat scales did not go that high. Princess Chunk is a whopping 44 pounds making her one of the largest felines in the United States easily. Princess Chunk was only two pounds shy of a world record for being the largest feline.

She is now in a foster home, because the shelter did not have any cage that was big enough for this mammoth cat. The real question is how she sneaked out of her home and into the street in the first place. Most people would certainly miss at cat this enormous and her owners have a week to claim her or she can be adopted.

Another question this story brings to mind is how in the world this cat could get so huge in the first place. When a cat is fixed, they will gain some weight, but usually not this much. It is unclear if this cat if fixed or not, as the shelter did not release that information.

Cats also get overweight when they are allowed to eat too much food. Many people who have cats in households with no children tend to spoil the cats with toys, food, and extra helpings of love. What Princess Chunk needs is exercise and a good diet to lose some weight, which will help her, become healthier.

Here are some things you can do to guard against having your own fat cat like Princess Chunk. Milk is a food, not a drink it adds calories so if you must use milk do it rarely. Most people assume you must have a saucer of milk for a cat, but that is not true. Cats need water just as much as we humans do. Milk does affect cats as it does people who are lactose intolerant. Milk contains lactose, which will cause diarrhea in cats and should not be used on a regular basis according to Purina's web site about feeding cats.

Maybe she can get a job being the real life model for Arlene the plush cat Real Estate Staging Agent! ;)

thanks Rick!

Hug Me, the Emotibot!

A robot puppet which appears to react emotionally to the way it is treated has been bringing out the best - and worst - in children at London's Science Museum.
Heart Robot has a beating heart, a breathing belly, and sensors that respond to movement, noise and touch.
Cuddle him, and he seems to soak up the affection. His limbs become limp, his eyelids lower, his breathing relaxes, and his heart beat slows down.
But give him a violent shake, or shout in his face, and he gets upset. He flinches, his hands clench, his breathing and heart rate speed up, and his eyes widen.
Heart Robot, created by scientists at the University of the West of England in Bristol, was designed to explore what happens when machines interact emotionally with humans.
But he also revealed something about the psychological differences between pre-teen children.

Holly Cave, who helped organise the interactive "Emotibots" event at the Science Museum in which Heart Robot plays a starring role, said: "Heart Robot looks like a cross between ET and Gollum and is about the size of a small child.

"He's half robot, half puppet. You move him around by hand, but he has innate responses that appear emotional.
"Different children react to him very differently. They either want to hug and cuddle him, and look after him like a doll or baby, or they just want to scare him."

Also taking part in the Emotibots event this week is Hexapod, a six-legged metallic spidery robot that tracks people's faces and latches onto visitors who walk around it. If a person holds Hexapod's gaze long enough what it sees is downloaded and projected onto a plasma screen.
