haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (johnny-haldoor)
I was supposed to be writing this weekend, but couldn't wrap my head around it. Instead I've spent a couple of hours making icons. I said in a previous post that I really needed a 'sleepy' icon, so I searched out some pics of people and animals sleeping and then cropped and played around with different parts of the images I found.

Under the cut are the results )

RIP Andy

Our last guinea pig, Andy, died today.

After his mother Squeaka got ill and died last year (around this time) Andy and Ginger were still okay, and we had put them together in the hopes of having babies. That never happened. Some time later, both Ginger and Andy came down with whatever Squeaka had had, and Ginger passed away in August this year, but Andy had been hanging on. We looked after him as best we could, but there just wasn't any recovering from whatever it was that struck them down and Andy finally gave up the fight today.



Bye Andy; we loved you.

Found on [livejournal.com profile] demonqueen666's LJ:

Is your cat plotting to kill you?

Mine are only that low because they're still babies, I'm sure.

Met the Hubby after work today to be told that two of our baby guinea pigs did not survive the night. Unfortunately, the lid to the hutch was not weighted down with it's usual rock overnight and it must have blown opne in the wind. Apparently there were scratch marks like cat footprints on the inside of it, so we can only assume cats got them in the night. I suppose we should be grateful there were no little bodies in evidence around the property.

I feel awful - I really should have checked that the girls put everything in place last night when they fed them, but I didn't. So much running around on Thursdays, and even when I was at the computer later I didn't think to look out the window and check they were okay. Harder later in the dark, but I was posting about 5.30 when it was still light. Have been feeling miserable on and off since I found out.

The two mamas were okay, ond the one girl baby left with them seems okay too, though I'm sure the mother of the two missing ones is a bit stressed, she's been all shivery when held alone. Probably better with the other ones though, seems less stressed then.

I've been a bit stressed too, but hardly surprising... and I forgot to eat lunch. Now I discover the stamps booklets I bought on my way home from work feature one with only the cover and no stamps... *sigh* so I will have to go back to the Postshop to get the others. Dammit, and I was just out with the kids for 2 hours (they got out early from school due to a teacher's union meeting) shopping and gathering things for the sleepover tomorrow night. if I'd looked earlier I could have gone back then. Currently waiting for Hubby to get home so I can go for my stamps without the kids now we're all planted at home.

The sleepover was almost last minute too. I forgot I'd promised N1D she could have it, and then the instructions and things only arrived on Monday (it's part of an Australasian world record attempt organised by the mag "Total Girl" that N1D gets), and considering the orginal deal with it was back in May or something, they could have got this pack out to her a bit sooner. Thank goodness she's only invited two friends.

Okay, Hubby will be here in a tic, better go eat something before I end up biting off someone's head at the Postshop. PMS rules. I can't even do the good things right now, LF just spilled muffin crumbs in the clean washing...

I'm in mourning. Auckland Zoo's tiger, Nisha died yesterday.

Here's the NZ Herald report, if anyone would like to read it:

And this is a picture of her that I took some time ago:

My kids and I are fairly frequent visitors to our zoo, which has always been improving things for the animals over the years and also been involved in preservation of endangered species. It's a fantastic zoo, with so much room for the animals, and the zookeepers do their utmost to ensure the animals are stimulated and happy. You just have to watch our "Zoo" programme about them to know this.

We went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago, and were really pleased to see them building the new enclosure for Nisha (she was in the old lion one, which had been concrete but had become beautifully overgrown and jungle-like) to house her and the new mate that they are bringing in September. The good news is that Oz is still coming, and they will bring Nisha's sister up from Hamilton to be with him, as Sumatran tigers are extremely endangered and they want to continue the breeding programme.

However, we will miss Nisha, she was an Auckland icon, and such a beautiful animal. May she rest in peace.

The wee bird we found on Thursday not only survived the night, it seemed stronger... so we kept it around, trying to give it some food and water, but it didn't seem to do much with it - too young I guess.
