Ambika, courtesy Smithsonian’s National Zoo

From the Smithsonian’s National Zoo:

“Ambika, the beloved eldest member of our Asian elephant herd, was humanely euthanized yesterday. At 72 years old, she was a true giant in the conservation community. Having lived at the Zoo for 59 years, it is impossible to quantify the millions of people she has inspired to care about conservation. However, it is fair to say that all who knew Ambika loved her. We miss her dearly. Read More

From a press release:

“As plant-centric Oyster Oyster prepared to finally open its doors after years in the making, COVID-19 hit and the restaurant brainstormed ways to take care of staff it had already hired, and cover bills so it could hopefully, eventually open once this world pandemic was over. Enter: Scrappy’s Bagel Bar – a temporary weekend pop-up from Chef Rob Rubba, featuring homemade bagels and schmears, plus at-home mimosa kits served out of its sister restaurant Estadio. Scrappy’s Bagel Bar will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 11am until the bagels run out.

There were many factors that inspired the pop-up and helped it all come together: Rubba’s first job was baking bagels and making bagel sandwiches at a Manhattan Bagel shop in southern Jersey, he started his culinary career in pastry and often makes bagels at home for his family, and Estadio has fantastic bread ovens (which has allowed them to bake all breads in-house) at their disposal.

From Ivy & Coney:

“folks have been super generous with their purchases and donations to our staff as we struggle to make it through this. As a small thank you we have created a coloring book and will be giving out digital pages each day to anyone donating or making purchases through our website (new pages every few days). Hopefully it provides a small amount of entertainment to help keep folks sane as we ride this out.”

Ed. Note: Thanks to Maggie for passing on this list for how to help workers in the DMV Beauty Industry.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m wondering what other folks in the city are doing in terms of haircuts/trims etc now that barbers and hair salons are closed. Learning to cut their own hair? Curious to hear how it’s going for others.”

Ed. Note two: I imagine we’re all just gonna be a bit shaggy at the end of this.

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Meet the amazing Mariam! She’s not just any ol’ cat — she’s a very special one. We bet if you ever thought about it (and we doubt you did!), you would have said there was no queen of Kuwait? Well, okay, you would be correct — but we do have a queen FROM Kuwait: please pay your official respects to Queen Mariam!

She packed her bags, picked up some pretty cool stamps on her paperwork, and headed here to conquer new worlds. She does like to monitor her domain to make sure all is in order but that doesn’t mean she won’t do some “paws-on” activity. She loves to hang out and keep you company while you work but she loves it even more when you play.

Don’t let her age fool you (8 years young!): this royal lady can get downright rambunctious, scrambling around her palace (aka your home) for hours playing with toy mice. And she really puts her back into it when she scratches on her (authorized) cardboard or her upright scratching post. If you want a playful monarch to keep you company and make you laugh, come meet Queen Mariam. You won’t even have to get past any palace guards!

To learn more about Queen Mariam, email [email protected]

Stella is a total sweetheart who gives endless affection! She loves being a couch potato. She’s incredibly calm, barely makes a sound, and loves every person she meets! Stella walks really well on the leash, but does get excited about squirrels and rabbits when she spots them!

Stella also enjoys playing with other dogs. She is a proper lady who would, however, prefer an adults-only home where she can soak up all the love.

Stella knows some basic commands and sleeps through the night in her foster home, where she has been going outside every few hours during the day.

To find out how to meet Stella through Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, emails [email protected]
