Mobile Monday: Ora

Ora has been very spoiled the past few days. Astrea went to spend a week or so with my parents so I could study and take my exam without having to worry about her. Have the house to herself has made Ora a very happy girl. She's taking time to smell the flowers and become a lap cat...

Happy Pet Oral Health Month 2012

It's February and that means it's Pet Oral Health Month again! I would have loved to do a real post this year with some real information, but right now there just isn't the time for me to do what I'd like. Last year I talked about Greenies and the year before that I think I posted a link to a CNN article. This year I wanted to post a series super cute pictures of Astrea enjoying her Greenies but instead I got this -

So - with that - keep your pets teeth in mind too! You don't want them to end up like Ora having 9 teeth removed! Keep up with teeth brushing, dental cleanings and of course treats and food that help keep their teeth clean!

Clean Up Your Act, Sacramento!

Has anyone else seen this new project from Sacramento Photographer Tamara Watson? It's called "Clean Up Your Act, Sacramento" and we definitely need to. Sacramento has a trash problem, and I'd say it extends throughout much of the county - which makes me sad. I don't know why people think it's acceptable to throw their trash on the ground, but they do. For those of us with dogs (and I'm sure for people with kids too!) it makes things difficult sometimes. Astrea is a sucker for any paper that once held a burger or burrito - but she always gets the same response from me - "Leave it! We don't know what that is!" I usually follow up with a talk about how we can't go poking our noses into everything we see, trying to eat strange things. We also talk about not taking treats from strangers - you never know what they could be. Anyway, Tamara has come up with this cute campaign, using her supermodel Rupert, to tell the people of Sacramento to take a minute and clean things up! You can read more about the campaign at Tamara's blog and be sure to LIKE the facebook page! And of course, check out Rupert looking beautiful, even among the trash.

Calling all love birds!

I know, super cheesy title with Valentines just around the corner - but I've been really sick and my imagination seems to still be recovering from the flu. Now that we've got past that, anyone looking for a bird? I don't think people realize that animal shelters take in more than just dogs and cats. The Sacramento County Shelter is home to dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, birds and more! Check out the beautiful birds currently looking for homes at the Sacramento County Shelter. If you're interested in adopting, see below for adoption costs and how the birds came to the shelter.

We need help finding homes for all of our birds! We have a pair of mitrid conures, they are the green birds with red heads. They are a pair and must be adopted together $300. We have a yellow headed amazon $350 (experienced owner only). We have two pairs (we will not split them up) of cockatiels $40 for each pair. We also have one single cockatiel that is $20. The birds came out of three different homes where owners had died. It is a strange fluke that they all came in together. Call us (916-368-7387) for more detailed information or come on down and see them!

i love this dog.

The problem with following the local shelters on facebook is I want to adopt almost every dog and cat they post. Unfortunately, I have to be realistic and responsible and accept that Ora and Astrea are all I can handle. So... anyone have room for this cute little boy in their home??

My Study Partners

Astrea and Ora are feeling a little neglected lately. Even though Astrea gets the same amount of walks, and Ora still gets her afternoon belly rub every day - they're still feeling like I'm spending too much studying. When Astrea is ready for me to be done she will come sit in my lap. Doesn't matter if there is a book or papers or flashcards in my lap. She plants herself and demands attention. Ora on the other hand will jump up on the table and knock all my stuff on the floor. Finally, the other day they decided they would just suck it up and accept that sitting with me in the office is as good as it's going to get right now. They sure are cute though, aren't they?

Celebrity Sunday: Kristen Bell

I recently fell in LOVE with Kristen Bell. She is absolutely hilarious, and like all celebrities I fall in love with, I'm sure we would make great friends. There are various reasons I think someone would be a good friend of mine, here, it's because she had a total melt down out of pure happiness and excitement. Check out this video of her on Ellen talking about being surprised with a sloth for her birthday.

Happy 3rd Birthday Astrea

Well, at least I'm an equal opportunity special day forgetter this year. All my reminders to not forget Astrea's birthday after I forgot Ora's Gotcha Day - and I still forgot. I realized last night that Astrea's birthday had come and gone with out even a "happy birthday." So today, I decided to put the books to the side for a bit and have a little birthday celebration. We went on a nice nature walk and then I made her a little cake. It was a little bittersweet, since this is the first year we haven't celebrated her birthday with her friend Athena, but I think she was happy just the same.
