Animal Planet- Thematic Photographic

"All creatures are deserving of a life free from fear and pain." - Maura Cummings

Carmi is requesting we unleash animals for our theme this week.

Animal Planet 

Live from Wild Rumpus Book Store in Minneapolis meet Booker.  Every time I visit he's up to something.  This day he was raging his brutal attack upon- suffering Skitter Critter, his catnip mouse for everyone's enjoyment.

"Meow" means "woof' in cat." - George Carlin

This last summer it was bear cub madness!

"When a pine needle falls in the forest the eagle sees it; the deer hears it,and the bear smells it." - An Old First Nation Saying

I see you!

Meet Francis

"I can't help it if I'm ridiculously good looking."

Of course while we're on the subject of animals, and flipping through my photos I can't resist sharing one of my own animals.  Meet my adorable little, Dashiell.

"We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." - Immanuel Kant

Booker sure reminds me of the Marmelade Gypsy -- orange cats always melt my heart.
