Go Condors, Butterflies and Turtles!

by Kimberly A. Cook

I know this is Super Bowl weekend and these teams are not in the game, but they’re still winning! Since this week we’re celebrating victories, thought it was a great time to check out the Oregon Zoo’s conservation accomplishments for 2017.

And I’ve never seen anything cuter than a pygmy rabbit. Seriously! But the western pond turtle is a looker too.

Stock up on chips and dips, don’t forget Kitten Bowl Five on the Hallmark Channel, and root for the condors, butterflies, turtles and pygmy rabbits!

Have a great, safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Two Fast Girls Move Into The Oregon Zoo

by Kimberly A. Cook                             (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Here in Oregon we get a lot of new folks moving up from California, but these two San Diego gals are very quick. Mary Jane and Darlene are the new cheetah residents at the Oregon Zoo. They look fast standing still. Like the supermodels of the feline family. Go big kitties!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Time For Cat Tricks?

by Kimberly A. Cook                          (Twitter@  Warrior Tales)

Behind schedule. Again. The sun came out Tuesday and I threw caution to the wind. And stayed away from the computer the rest of the week. But now I am back to share a very late almost still Quirky Friday post.

I love these two cats, but I don’t really think you can shame cats; they’re too cool for that. Plus they know they’re better than us. Really. We scoop their poop. Nuf said!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Love And Grooming Make Fast Friends?

by Kimberly A. Cook               (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

The Chicago Cubs won an amazing World Series this week and the Cleveland Indians played their hearts out. Fans lost sleep across the nation, except for the Hawaii folks, but we all had a grand time watching this amazing series.

Which goes to show you miracles do happen and we all can get along. I don’t think it is any coincidence that Election Day is followed closely by Veterans Day.  In the military we work as a family, at times dysfunctional but always loyal.

So my fellow voters, if cats and dogs can find love and happiness, so can we. Have a great weekend, vote, and Happy Quirky Friday!

Snoozing On The Job?

by Kimberly A. Cook                 (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Yes, I was. Spent one and half hours on Friday trying to find a video I liked and gave up. Saturday I played couch potato. So on behalf of those of us who need to slow down and nap at times, I give you this fabulous clouded leopard cub who is a pro snoozer. Look as those paws!

Got a busy week ahead? Remember this cutie cub. Hope you had a great weekend!

Can You Cuddle With Mr. Spock?

by Kimberly A. Cook           (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Right now Nashville is getting hit with a snow and ice mess and Washington, D.C., is bracing for two feet of snow. I saw a news report about a new Blizzard Buddy app for folks to use to try and date while snowed in – creative!

Here in Oregon it’s 53 degrees today and rainy, so I wanted to offer some snuggle suggestions from those of us not being beat up by winter weather. How about cuddling up with a large feline who goes by the name Mr. Spock? He keeps getting reported to authorities for being a Bobcat! He’s not, just a big boy Maine Coon cat kind of guy.

Stay warm out there, take care, have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Are You Ready For Some Feline Football?

by Kimberly A. Cook                    (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

The teams have been training and the playoff games are almost decided. With the Combine looming in the distance for the NFL Draft, it’s that time once again before the big game. The Feline Football League Kitten Bowl II! While many folks will watch the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, the hands down favorite Kitten Bowl II on Hallmark Channel at noon before the Super Bowl is the true game of competition.
