Wet Owl Bath

Of Bathtimes and Murderous Owls

Ever since the leg amputation, Artemis the owl has been doing remarkably well. He does, however, have trouble scratching away the loose feathers on his head. So what does a good owl momma do? She gives him a bath, then take pictures of how absolutely pathetic he looks. He looks ...

Merry Christmas!

While I'm a bit of a Grinch, I'd still like to wish all of you out there a happy holiday! It's almost over for me - duck has been eaten, presents have been unwrapped, and a slightly intoxicated grandma has been taken home and put to bed - but before ...
