    Thanks for posting that norealityhere. I hadn't seen it before. It made me tear up. And also made me give my babies a hug.
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon

    Well, I got my canary the other night from the woman in my yoga classs.
    The first night Monet just stared up at the canary in awe. Fortunately, Monet does not climb up that much - he's pretty mellow - and I have the canary in a cage on my sideboard in the dining room. The woman said she had a cat who literally sat on the cage her canaries were in. They all seemed to co-exist well though.
    We don't know if it's a male or female canary. Am hoping for a male, as supposedly they sing more. And, it seems that canaries don't start singing until they're about 6 - 7 months old, so we still have a long way to go.
    In the meantime, he/she has got a very pretty yellow/brown mottled coat and a full crown. The latter looks like a Beatle or Justin Bieber haircut. Combined with his/her long beak of a nose, we named the canary Ringo.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestion for the litter box aka my flower bed! A combination of citrus peels and mothballs seems to have done the trick.

    nrh, I've seen that 10 commandments before, it always makes me sad to think pets might be treated that way. Congrats on Ringo!

    inthegarden, thanks for the update on the leading cow. I feel bad for the other cow, she probably didn't realize it was a temp job while the lead cow was on a disability leave!

    This made me chuckle. Many happy years with Ringo!

    I didn't know Ringo was so popular an animal name. We named one of Rosie's puppies Ringo. But I think when it went to it's permanent home they probably renamed him.
