Your Afternoon Animal Fix + Found Parakeet

If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

Drauglis writes, “Beaver Kit being moved from one lodge to another. Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Washington. There were three adult beavers swimming around and slapping their tails. The one kit was moved to a lodge near the edge of the ponds, but a few minutes later the (presumed) mother and the kit left that lodge and swam out of sight, headed fro the mouth of the lagoon. I had heard that there was a “tidal anomaly” today (a newscaster’s phrasing) that was going to result in an unusually high tide. I wondered if the animals sensed that this was occurring and thus decided to move the young to a safer place.”

“Maggie Moo and Amos B. Haven of Brightwood take a break in Rock Creek Park.”

After the jump found parakeet in Columbia Heights

“Dear PoP,

A parakeet followed my husband home from the Columbia Heights Giant this morning. Just flew over, perched on his shoulder, and refused to leave. Husband and parakeet are now at our house.”

If its yours or you know who’s it is please have them email me at princeofpetworth(at)gmail

    I need to get a photo of the GIANT possum in my backyard Saturday night. Yikes, that thing is scary looking!

    Love the beaver photo – so sweet!

  • Thanks for sharing my pic!

  • Cute bird. If nobody claims him, we’ll take him. We’re cage and seed ready.

  • The parakeet’s incredible journey has come to an end; his people picked him up a few minutes ago. I say incredible, because he came from about four miles away, and he did it in about a day and a half. Who knew parakeets had such a range?

  • Thanks for posting Maggie and Amos!

    Tinkerbell is FIERCE!

    Glad the parakeet is home.
