Revamped Animal Welfare/Rescue/Resource/Pet Blog! [Dec. 20th, 2008|09:06 pm]
The place to be for animal - maniacs

I run a blog called A Furry Friend. It's dedicated to highlighting animals in need and to keep people informed on general animals news, stories, and events! I have helped many dogs and other animals through my blog.
I invite anyone to please submit any animals, stories, or events they'd like me to feature. You can contact me with information at afurryfriend@gmail.com.
If you know of an animal that is in immediate need of a rescue, adoption, foster, transportation, etc., please contact me as well!

I also have links to several animal rescue/welfare resources I've compiled, including: 

  • Rescue transportation services
  • Shelter/rescue directories
  • General animal welfare/rescue resources
  • A guide on how to report and stop internet animal abuse
  • A guide on how to help both domestic & wild animals in need
  • A guide to prepare your own animal rescue kit
These resources can be found by going to my blog and clicking on any of links under "A Furry Friend Resources" on the left-hand side.

I'd really like for everyone to come check out both my pages and pass them on to your friends!

My new babies... [Nov. 30th, 2008|04:37 pm]
The place to be for animal - maniacs

 I got four New Guinea Spiny Stick insects today. (Eurycantha calcarata)
Actually I got 2,2. The interesting thing is that they can have a variety of colours from dark brown to green. I have 1,1 in dark brown and 1,1 in brown and green.
The guy who sold them to me said that they are more or less adult by now. He thinks that they could maybe go through one more moulting. After reaching adult age they are supposed to live for about a year... but I learned that you´ll have to see. My leaf insects were supposed to live for 6 months and I have two girls who are in adult state for a year at least now.
Females reach about 15 cm and males about 12 cm.
Standards in food, heat and humidity aren´t much different from those of my leaf insects.

And at this point I think I´ll make the "insect cut".. so the insect - phobics won´t complaine about giant crawlers on their friends page...

I still had two pics on my cell phone that I took of our "family cat" Baby.
Well, she lives at my parents´ place and is 15 years old by now (I personally never wanted her to be called "Baby"... I feel like I should mention.. ;-) ).

I got six new leaf insects from a friend yesterday that I now keep with my two remaining "old ladies". :-)
I just had to take a couple of pics to me because the difference in size just amazed me....

Hello everyone. [Jul. 28th, 2008|07:25 pm]
The place to be for animal - maniacs

Just introducing myself to the group.

I am an exotic pet lover. A strong advocate for exotic pet ownership. I am also a dog and cat lover as well. I've grown up with exotic pets, and dogs and cats, and know entirely too much for someone my age (while other teenagers were going to concerts, I was at home reading books about dog breeds and Chinchillas, and exotic pet laws, haha).

At the moment, I just have one pet because of my housing situation. He is a jumbo fancy hooded rat just around a year-and-a-half old. His name is Ronin. He is extremely sweet. Never bitten a single person. He is, basically, my rock. I always dedicate myself to me animals, because they bring me so much happiness and I figure they deserve as much of me as I can give, since they are my whole responsibility.
Here are some pictures of my little guy.

My boyfriend has a few pets. I often end up taking care of them, as well.
This is Meika, a 1 year old Pomeranian that we rescued from an owner who could no longer care for her. She is unfortunately the product of backyard breeding, and is an incest puppy (brother to sister mating for a quick buck), but luckily she has shown no health problems because of this.

And this is Peanut. She is a mixed breed (I believe she is a Cattle Dog mix). She has very bad skin problems due to food allergies and a bad flea allergy. We are in the process of working on getting her a food she can eat that will help her coat come back in, but with no luck so far. She is a real sweetheart though. She is about 4 years old, a rescue from the local animal shelter.

And this is his cat, Mittens. She is a rescue from the local shelter as well. About 3 years old.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.
