By 3Kris7Kritters3 | July 20, 2022

Hello again! It has been a long, long time since I updated this blog. I’ve been so busy keeping my other two active (wordwhisperer.net and yellowballoonpublications.com) that I’ve been neglecting this one. But since I’ll be visiting Northwest Trek in August, I thought I’d better get back on here and start interacting again with my…

By 3Kris7Kritters3 | January 16, 2021

https://www.intelligentliving.co/amp/rats-play-hide-and-seek-giggled-jumped/   The above article doesn’t surprise me in the least…   Here’s why:   I had a pet rat (Fink) and a Siamese cat (Charisma, nickname Turkey) who used to take turns chasing each other.   They were living in a huge warehouse/office building combo and allowed to hang out together from the time…

My Favorite Animal-Related Nonprofits

By 3Kris7Kritters3 | December 3, 2020

My Favorite Animal-Related Nonprofits    When it comes to donating to worthy causes, it can be scary and risky. A lot of places just aren’t up to snuff.   Here, in alphabetical order, are four animal-related nonprofits that I can vouch for personally.

Yellowstone Grizzlies Get Reprieve

By 3Kris7Kritters3 | July 18, 2020

Ecowatch has just announced that Yellowstone grizzlies will receive continued endangered species protection despite the efforts of the Trump administration to remove them from the list and allow them to be killed.   https://www.ecowatch.com/yellowstone-grizzly-bears-endangered-species-2646372807.html   I’m immensely relieved to hear this, because today’s Yellowstone grizzlies are very likely the descendants of two grizzly bear cubs…

LittleCritterz.com and My Dream About Wild Animals

By 3Kris7Kritters3 | February 19, 2019

I was hired by LittleCritterz.com to write a new ABOUT US page and a few blog posts about Wild Cats of the Americas.  When they’re published on the site, I’ll link to them so you can read them.   The project was a hoot and I enjoyed it tremendously.   That’s probably what led me…

Patchin’ Up a Pigeon

By KrisSmith | September 3, 2018

I’ve been patching up a pigeon whose tail feathers were yanked out and whose wing was injured by a cat.   It (I won’t say “he” or “she” because I don’t know its gender)  is just about ready to get airborne and fly free again. It is flapping both wings, going from branch to branch…

Animal Lovers and Losers

By KrisSmith | July 4, 2018

For seventeen years, I shared my life with an African serval cat named Deaken (‘Dea’ in honor of his mother Rhodesia’s nickname, and ‘ken’ in honor of his father’s full name, Kenya). One of the  most frequently-asked questions, when people discovered I had him, was, “What do people think when you walk him around on…

Duck Darlings

By KrisSmith | May 21, 2018

Personally, I haven’t seen such extended joy in my immediate surroundings since the goats were babies. I’ve been a duck dad for less than a week and already at least 50 people have been blessed by them. When I ‘m not taking them places for older ladies and their families and friends to delight in,…
