Betteb, when I glanced at the spelling of the link you posted I about died...then looked longer and figured out what it really spelled. Bwahaahaa. It does sound like a cool place and a great time. CH
Yes, it is pretty funny.
Some might think it was crazy to chose that place over a high class, resort hotel, but for me, being animal crazy, with the emphasis on cats and giraffes, it was perfect.
I will never forget as long as I live, those giraffes, socialized to people. One female seemed to take a shine to me and stood there for the longest time, looking me straight in the eye, with her huge, intelligent, soulful eyes, reaching down ever so gentley, taking carrot sticks out of my hand by wrapping her long tounge around them.
And her incredible eyelashes!!
Quite possibly the longest of aniy animal.

We have a new litter Cat Daddy John is live right now with The Clone Troopers
Nala Se was found as a stray and brought to Purrfect Pals where she gave birth to seven kittens on June 21st, one of which was stillborn. Nala Se is a year old and this is at least her 2nd litter. The troopers are still represented by their numeric designation until they earn their name.

I don't know whether to hug you or cuss you. Guess I'll just have to heart you. There are not enough hours in the day to keep up with the cams and still get though stuff that needs my attention. Lol.

Awww Marp, just for you, I'll take the hug and the cussin'.
I spend way too much time watching "kitten TV" as well. I try to just do a quick check a couple of times a day and that works.......sometimes

Can Eve and her combined litters get any more adorable!!!!...Did anyone catch the hysterical kitten mayhem that occurred yesterday?...The room was, let's say, totally renovated...walls knocked down...container of food relocated...cam adjustment....LOL...Shelly had quite the challenge getting things back in order!...I caught it on the timeline last night...wish it was still there, so you all could see it!...I would have posted earlier, but it was rather late when I was able to log on.
Marp...I checked out the Giraffe Cam and saw Kiko's birth...poor little thing made quite the entrance into the World and, when it was over, Mama just walked away and Kiko was left on her own for a little while...Mama kept going back and forth and Kiko finally found her footing...Nature is just so amazing!
betteb...I also had to do a double take on your link...Your "s" at the end of "Hedrick" threw it off into another direction entirely and I thought to myself..."no wonder it was the best anniversary celebration you have had"!.....LOL...I checked it out and found it interesting how the B&B is located right in the center of the animal farm...Mr. Hedrick has quite an attraction there in Kansas!
These "emoticons" on here are really weird.
Waving to everyone!

Good morning Wildflowers,
I haven't even had time yet to check the FB pages let alone watch the kittens very much. I'll look for LD's video on TKCP.
Tiny suitcases get packed Friday at 11 am kitten time. They grow up and leave "home" so fast, sniff, sniff. However, it shouldn't take more than a few days before Shelly gets another foster. In the meantime there are lots of kittens to watch.

Good Morning, Marp,
Isn't it a bummer how "real life" just gets in our way!...lol
Are you saying that our precious Eve and combined litters will be going to their forever homes on Friday already...all of them?...I will miss them so very much!

Eve and the Palindromes will be leaving but Sloaney's kittens will be with us for short time yet. From Tinykittens FB page:
Can you believe it's that time again? Eve + the Palindromes will be packing their #tinysuitcases on Friday at 11am PT, and will be leaving to meet their new families around 1:30pm. Sloaney's Happy Forest kittens will be with us at TKHQ for another 2 weeks or so.
So far, here are the Facebook pages:
Mama Eve and Arora Palindrome's Happy Tails
The Shenanigans of Izzi & Otto Palindrome
Happy Forest Kittens - Cricket & Katydid
Badger & Junebug's Furever Furrytail Forest Fantasy

We are all so, so grateful to the wonderful new families for allowing us to follow along as our little darlings grow up.

I don't know if I should just post this here or if I should start a separate Kiko update thread. For now I will just post here.
I posted: Hi Toronto from North Carolina. As a Kiko follower we are anxious for information about him and how he has adjusted to his new surroundings. Are there plans to install a livecam so we can continue our obsession with watching Kiko?
The zoo's reply follows:
Unfortunately at this time we do not have a webcam within our indoor and outdoor giraffe habitats. However, our Zoo Keeper Andy will keep Kiko fans up-to-date on our YouTube channel with a series of Keeper Talks. You can watch the first one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Myw_ZpHoaxo

Yes, I was able to do some exploring tonight and am all set with the websites that you listed for Eve and The Palindromes and also Sloaney's kittens!...As sad as it is for all of us to "let them go", we all are also so very thrilled and happy that they have been adopted into forever loving homes and that the adopters will be sharing their journeys with us!...How wonderful and generous of them!
Oh my gosh, the little tiny suitcases are just too precious!...I had better have a box of kleenex on hand for Friday's departure...I noted preparations starting at 2:00 and departure at 4:30 EST, so I'm going to have to do just a little "finagling" with my schedule and it should work out fine!...Our "little darlings" are top priority now!
I also took down your info on Kiko...I can't think of any better distraction than the wondrous World of Nature!
Thanks to you and betteb, I now have a list of several websites that is growing longer and longer! LOL
