amanda, wife and i tried to foster two baby mice that were nesting in my car's cabin air filter. cute, wriggly things what with their eyes still closed....could get them to drink goat milk and kitten formula for about three days and then they refused to swallow anything, no matter how much it was thinned for their teeny throats...lost the last one yesterday. we are sleepless and sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14am

I think it's next to impossible to raise a baby mammal that young if you do not have proper supplies/nutrition. A wildlife rehabber might be able to help if it ever happens again. But not sure if they do lil baby mice. Sorry for your loss, they were loved.

Morning fellow animals

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20am

we had the tiniest pipettes, proper heated incubator, right foods (according to the internet), rubbed their bellies and nethers so they would pee and poo, tried to feed every hour and a half etc. they may have already had an infection. i also found a dead full sized mouse in the car so maybe they hadn't been fed in a while and were cold. or maybe mom had been poisoned and passed on whatever she ate in her milk. i had visions of carrying a mouse around in my pocket, sort of like joel grey in that christmas cartoon.

I got Kiki a puzzle feeder so she needs to move these shapes around to find which shape I put her food under. the vet said it helps her get smarter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32am

We use homemade puzzle boxes for our cat, but just for treats. He is frustrated by them, but he gets the treat out eventually.
Fred and Alan:

Good Morning Everyone Fred and Alan

I like that you made a puzzle box feeder. the only cat toy I made was tying a shoelace to a mini stuffed alpaca

The media-inspired idea that Donovan and Dylan didn't get along back then in 1965 is false.

I really missed your drawings last week, Jim!! "I fell right on my keys!"...Ha Ha!!
Avatar 8:00am

In Don't Look Back he mocks Donovan while Donovan is playing his song for them::: Bob Dylan is like "that's a good song man" laughing at him in the MIDDLE of the SONG lol

Then Bob Dylan grabs the guitar which Donovan doesn't want to give him lol
So the fight over the guitar for a second then Dylan
plays Its All Over Now Baby Blue and makes Donovans song look so bad lool

Morning Juli. Dylan was high and weird, in that scene. That initial meeting was awkward. They then became pals. I read Donovan's bio where this is laid out.

Jim the Poet:

Reflecting on the occasion shortly after, Dylan told Melody Maker: “He played some songs to me. … I like him. … He's a nice guy.” During the subsequent tour dates, Dylan allegedly mentioned Donovan's name in a defamatory lyric alteration while performing 'Talkin' World War III Blues' to which the audience jeered.

Yeah I ve been high & weird before
No judgements here

Personally I love them both but found that scene funny:::} Lol.

@Amanda: Used to play that song on college radio. It provided a good bathroom break...but then the song was so exciting I couldn't leave the studio!! 12 minutes of peak prog!

Oh yes, and this show rules the airwaves.

neither "tabbies" nor "calicos" indicate a breed of cat, rather just a color patterning determined by genetics.
