Meet Tabba-Tabby

Our newest foster cat.Mum came out from work (a very quiet place way out from town along the highway) and found him sitting on her car. He ran off at first but when she called him, he came over and rubbed against her. So she brought him home with her and called me. He had a tear in his ear from either fighting or a scissor cut, but it has healed quite well. I checked him for a microchip the next day at the vets. None. I put ads in the local paper and posters up for a few weeks, sent an email to vet clinics with his picture, and called the RSPCA. No luck. He was so skinny, but so loving, and sooooooooo hungry!We surmised that he'd been dumped, poor kitty. We didn't think we could take him on as a CAA foster cat, and because he was still so young and hadn't started spraying tom cat smell yet, I talked to my local vet and he offered to neuter him for a reduced price. So we got him fixed.He became a kitten all over again, comes with Sasha, Oscar and I when we go for our walks, and he plays with a stuffed koala toy we gave him. He sleeps in the patio every night when we lock the cats inside, and his favourite food is milk or cream.CAA now have a place for him, with us as his carers, and he's up for adoption!

Art Journal

I mentioned a few posts ago that most of my stuff lately hasn't been stitched, but was going into my Art Journal. Here's a few pages, I think this type of random pattern is called Zentangle. It's really enjoyable and relaxing.I think I've entered a craft slump, as I just don't feel like doing anything creative other than doodling. So I'll blog a journal page a week, just to show that I'm still doing some sort of arts and crafts.

Cupcake Day 4 the RSPCA

Cupcake Day 4 the RSPCA was last Friday. Dad asked me to bake cupcakes for a competition they had at his work, which is one of the major sponsors of the charity. So I baked 12 lemon rainbow cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting, and 12 vanilla cupcakes, some decorated with turtles and a couple as mushrooms.Can you believe it? I won first prize for my rainbow ones!!Only one vanilla cupcake was left at the end of the day, totaling $44 raised for the RSPCA from my baking alone.I'm stoked that I could win my Dad bragging rights for a whole year, and make him so proud.

Australian Reptile Park

It's one of my favourite places in the world! I know quite a few of my followers are afraid of snakes, so I've blogged the photos on my other blog here, but I thought I'd share the owl pictures here as well! I got to hold the tawny's and a boobook, but the barn owl wouldn't let me near him. Enjoy!Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides).Australian Barn Owl (Tyto alba).Southern Boobook Owl (Ninox novaeseelandiae).

Meet Galilleo...

I said I'd introduce you to the present I bought myself at the Canberra Reptile Sanctuary. Well, here he is!This is the picture I took of him before I even knew I could consider him for adoption -Here's my new baby now, all happy at home with his new family!
Front to back - Galilleo, Pepsi, Diego and Jasper. I didn't realize how big he really was until I put him down next to Pepsi!
I'd love to show you all the other pictures I took at the Reptile Center, but because it involves snakes, I'll put them on my other blog here, so you can choose whether or not to see them. They're good photos though!!
