    In my house, it's catnip! It becomes, "Katie, bar the door!! Here comes the stampede!"

    Unk, those mice on that cat gave me the creeps and made my hair stand on end!

    It's official.....I'm itching...

    Glad to hear Princess is going to be okay.
    Chloe, who was a Feral, is very scary too. She has a hiding spot and will run to it at the least little noise and if company comes by. I make sure that no doors are closed and that she can get to her hiding spot.
    She is very glad that the Holidays are over and she can get back to her normal routine... eating, sleeping and staying warm by laying under the wood heater, catching treats, watching for birds and to her dismay, posing for pictures.

    Ducks at OSU Rounded Up to Safety

    UPDATE: Ducks at OSU Rounded Up to Safety

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Volunteers stepped in Wednesday to help relocate more than two dozen ducks from a pond at Ohio State University that threatens to freeze over and leave the ducks starving.

    ABC6-Fox28 News first reported the issue Tuesday night, prompting a group of locals, including ABC6-Fox28 Reporter Adam Slinger, to help collect the ducks -- by hand -- at Fred Beekman Park at OSU. The tactic: scare the ducks out of the water and catch ‘em.

    The effort comes after the Ohio Wildlife Center reported answering nearly two dozen calls about the ducks running dangerously low on swimming water. As the local temperature continues to drop, more and more water freezes up.

    The Center told ABC6/FOX28 that the ducks are not "wild" ducks and most likely cannot fly. Without being able to fly, they're less likely to be able to find a new source of water, said Dr. Donald Burton, of the Ohio Wildlife Center.

    While the Center doesn’t have jurisdiction over the ducks, its staff still volunteered their time to get the animals to a safer location.

    In total, eight volunteers took about an hour to round-up the ducks. Slinger helped out, catching two ducks.

    The ducks are being taken to the Wildlife Center, where several people have expressed interest in bringing the ducks to ponds on their property -- where the water won’t freeze this winter.

    Chloe is a beautiful girl!

    Glad I don't live in Florida now. I couldn't stand to look at them when I was there. If one fell out of a tree on me, I think I'd have a heart attack.
