Happy hedgie day, fellow four-paws!

Did ya know in most other parts of the Earth the 2-leggers call today Hedgehog Day?
But nooooo.
Not here in this USofA.

Long ago some nutballs in the Northeast decided to give all the fame and glory of weather predictin’ to a groundhog.
Named Phil.
Who names a groundhog Phil??? Poor dude. His parents must’ve hated him.

Well whatever his name is, he better make sure it warms up. I’m sick of this deep- Hoth-winter stuff!

Stay bionic y’all,
Jami

It’s that time of year again… the waters are warm and doggies are swimming at the beaches. But warm waters bring those big, scary, WINDY storms called hurricanes. Ick.

The Amazing Woo blog - Prepare your pets for hurricane season
When I was little there was a tropical storm that hung around our house for three days! It was sooooo windy I thought I’d be a Woo-in-the-Wind! So I belly crawled it to the very edge of the patio and pee’d laying down. There was no way I was risking gettin’ tossed around in that storm. My momma still loves to tell that story to everyone… I really wish she’d let it go. I was tiny, what did she expect me to do?

Anyhow, the National Hurricane Center has released a basic plan and checklist that all pet parents should read. Mostly common sense but even humans need reminders sometimes.

The main thing to remember here peeps is DON’T let your pet parents leave you home alone! There were SO many lost pooches, kitties, ponies, birds, even turtles after the 2004 Florida storms and then again in 2005 with Katrina. Cram yourself in their suitcase if you have to! Make sure your feathered or tiny furry cousins have small travel cages, bring your blankies for snuggling, you can even get your own backpack to help carry your food stash!
Woof!

As many of y’all know, my momma writes a blog called Bionic Beauty… she was actually named after some old TV show called The Bionic Woman. Anyhow, you gotta check out Oscar, the cat. He’s actually BIONIC!

The vets gave him his very own paw-sthesis legs!

And don’t miss the whole story over at Paw Nation.

I’m thinkin’ I’d like a Bionic nose to hunt down tasty treats!

I’m calling all my fellow furry pals… pooches and kitties alike. This time WE can make a difference by helping to clean up the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

How can we do this without opposable thumbs? It’s actually simple, painless, and free. You gotta tell your human pets to gather up all your shedded hair! Yup. All those fur-bunnies we leave laying around the house can now be put to good use!

Nonprofit organization Matter of Trust creates hair mats out of pet hair to clean up the Gulf Oil Spill

Matter of Trust, a non-profit organization is going to use our fur to weave hair mats which will then be used to soak up oil that is spreading rapidly across the gulf. It’s already affecting hundreds of sea turtles, oysters, fish, and many many more of our fellow creatures. This is gonna affect our environment for years to come. Did you know they are still cleaning up after the Valdez spill off the coast of Alaska? And that was back in 1989!!

So get to collectin’ your fur balls, my furry friends!! And be sure to put the word out via the kitty-comms, or the pup-phones, to whoever ya can!

To find out where to mail your fur and for more info on using the hairmats to clean up the oil spill, visit Matter of Trust’s website. I also want to thank Charleston’s Low Country Paws for helping to get the word out!

P.S. Our humans can help too, by donating nylon stockings and their own hair!
