Micah, yeast is typically classified as fungus. Though fungus & animals are, genetically speaking, closer cousins than either yeast and plants or animals and plants (or so is my understanding)

Morning. The little Drella cat is going window to window because a flock (yes I know other terms apply) of wild turkeys, just walked through the yard & up the driveway, stopping to nibble on my nasturtiums. Mom & four little ones. This is about half of the large flock of near 18 birds that was traveling together over the last few months, which had several adults and a bunch of little ones in tow.

a walrus needs to live in the water - you can take your boat out.

"The government had repeatedly asked people not to go near the animal, but they would not listen. Last week, an ultimatum had been issued that Freya would have to be put down unless people changed their behaviour, but the warning was not heeded."

No-discussion euthanizers are almost as bad people who dump pets at a shelter because they had a baby.

Ambulo Cletus:

Supposedly they did it because people wouldn't leave her alone, she was getting stressed and not sleeping enough, and they were worried that someone was going to get hurt. Seems like there should have been some way to back the people off, like maybe closing the marina to those who didn't need to use it for a few weeks

@Will: we used to have water bowls for them & they were always empty because they pawed around in them and spilled them all over the place. The fountain really has helped a lot in that dept. They love running water & drink mostly from the spout. They only put their feet in the bowl occasionally now.

I also put a baking sheet under the fountais so if they spill water it goes in the tray which is easily cleaned
