Memories Of A Water Event and Sunday Selfie.

Morning from western Canada my friends.

Yesterday was a hoot at Cat Scouts.  We had a Water Event.  There were so many cool Scouts at the event.

Timmy and Einstein of Timmy’s Commentary were having a ball.  So were the other Scouts.

Einstein and I paddled on the duckie.

There were lots of burgers and Timmy developed a secret sauce from Mangoes.

The Thundercats were silly as usual.  This picture I just HAD to show you of Teapartycat water skiing with his ballerina lady friends.  He held the pose and then as the camera clicked his picture….he lost his balance…MOL

If, you want to enjoy some of the Cat Scouts excitement and meet a whole bunch of new friends, just come and join us at Cat Scouts.  Get outta’ the house and meet some odd but always fun cats.

Now, onto the Sunday Selfie for today.  The Cat on My Head is hosting the blog hop once again.  Now, if you click on the blog hop name you will be escorted by Mau and Lisabeth to their blog to see all the other anipals doing their thing.

Let’s see…I press this while smiling….cheeeseeemousssse!

What happened?  Dang…I got my paw!  Wait a moment anipals and we’ll try that again.

Cheeesssemoussse!

   Much better…now it’s my face.

International Beaver Day and Beatrice

 

Did You know that April the 7th was International Beaver Day?  We didn’t know, although Beatrice was making a fuss yesterday.  We thought it was because she finally found her BLING! No, she was excited because on Beaver Day she allows herself to indulge in her favourite bark…..willow….it is more fattening than the pine or birch bark but has that extra nutty flavour.

Dates

7th Apr each year

The beaver may be the national animal of Canada but the furry dam-building rodent can be found across the North American continent and Eurasia as two distinct species, but the population has been on the decline for several decades now. International

Beaver Day aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the plight of the rodent. Beavers are known for their tree-munching activities, but did you know that they use every bit of the tree that they fell? They eat the buds, bark and leaves, before gnawing the branches and trunk into smaller pieces to build with. The dams are useful in preventing floods and droughts, restoring the northern wetlands and helping to cleanse the water. The largest beaver-built dam is in Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, Canada and is 850m long!

International Beaver Day is a great time to hike into the woods to spot some of these noble gnawers.

 

Beatrice has her BLING and is looking for a modelling job with the Wildlife magazines.  She wishes to stay in Canada and enjoy the mountains and many lakes and streams.
