Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

  • Hope someone helped that baby rabbit out! There was a fledgling sparrow perched for several hours on the axle of a bicycle wheel parked outside one of the Fringe Festival venues downtown on Sunday, with daddy perched in a tree nearby keeping watch. I don’t know what ultimately happened – and it’s driving me crazy.

    • There’s maybe one day between leaving the nest and being independent. They mature crazy fast. So the parents keep an eye out for that day, and assuming no cats or other mishap, all is well.

  • Poor baby rabbit!
    Ariel looks so cute! I still haven’t met a Bichon Frise, but I’ve heard they’re great dogs.

  • Dallas is so SWEET!!!! <3

  • What happened to the bunny? Please tell me s/he was not left there??

    Regarding fledlings – I actually had a call with animal control about this one: they said to leave them there and that the parents are really good and responsible and they come down and feed their babies until they are able to fly. Fingers crossed for the one on the bike and the one I brought off the road the other day . . .

    • Actually animal control told me last time that it was really bad to touch baby animals. A lot of times, they’ll get your human scent on them in some tiny way, and their parents will abandon them leading them to die.

      • Yes, agreed, however when a baby fledgling is in the road, on Lee Hwy no less, I think the odds are much worse that s/he will be hit. Further, I read online that for birds it is different (I, too was worried about that) because their sense of smell is not the greatest. Generally completely agree – best to observe and appreciate wildlife at a distance.
