Timur - a Great Warrior

Timur ... did you hear this name? Tarmashirin Khan, Tamerlane... A legendary king in Asia. He was high and had red hairs, by the way.

Now, we have a new member of the family which name is Timur. Timur, the Great Warrior. Here is he, I present you our new child:

This boy has 5 month now and he came to us about a month ago when I turned home from Russia.
I was surprised to see how big was he when I've seen him for the first time. Than, the second surprise was his calm character. From the first minutes he accepted me and the fact he has to travel in the uncertainty. I was afraid about this long trip. We made 2,5 hours in the train, than, we had to go home with the car.

He was so calm that I took him from the cage and...

Now, we wake up with the kisses of the kid which is just ready to play with us. Some days later he was just the main cat in the house. Basja did not want to accept him. Only rain could make her change her mind. Unfortunatelly, they are still not friends. But Timur learns everything from her. How to occupy all the bed, for example... :-)))

Here is our Timur when he has 4 months and 6 days

Cats are the Best Manipulators

This is very unusual view for the place where I live, in Italy. In fact, the locals do not have such "cat-dependence" as many of us have. Young persons can allow something like this to their cats - as the owner of this cat do. But it's not normal for most of them. 

I could not understand these persons which did not take in arms, did not caress a cat in their life. And... they can't understand me, who thinks animals are the same as we are. Different species.

My husband could not take a can in his arms, too. Till, one day, he fall in love with this one:

Now, she can do what she wants. And -believe or not believe- she is always a stray cat.
Interesting is that -even if she was spayed, it seems to us she helps other cats to grow their kittens.
Now, she has about 7 years and it seems, she is the only alive from all their generation. Stray cats do not live more than 2-3 years here...

A New Aviary for my Parrots

All my parrots -except Giove and Hera which have 3 eggs and seem to hatch their babies even if I do not understand the system they use for it- received their new aviary, finally. They have not only grass, soil, air and sun. They have even a pool. There are many "houses" and all kinds of food... They could not believe in their fortune. Some of them did not know to fly...

Now, I understand that some of this birds have problems. All of them, except nymphs, are adult. And I did not think the birds can have "human" problems... The Barnardius zonarius barnardi seemed to be dead: he felt down on the ground and remained there without any move for some seconds. He needed an entire day to  turn "normal".Probably, he never lived in free space...

Imagine that some days ago he ate a leave from my hand! He comes near me when I enter inside the aviary. I'm very very touched...

Sheep in the Agrarian Show

We visited one of my favorite agrarian shows where I buy always new kinds of plants and my husband looks for new breeds of hens. There are many different championships in that show but the most important is maybe those of local breeds of cows.

I went in one pavilion where there were plants a year ago. This year, there were sheep. All with newborn lambs. 

It was not very pleasant look. Something was happened during the way so that all the sheep gave birth the same night. But it was a sad pavilion. Later, my husband wanted to go there. I remained outside to wait for him. I could not enter once more there. He went out from there after some minutes and was disgusted, too.

There was nothing bad in the event, probably. But it was a sad look for me.

Gratitude of a Humpback Whale

This story I copy it from Facebook. I think, I do not need other words to describe it. And, since I copy it, I hope, the author will not be angry with me.

A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

This is her story of giving gratitude.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her…. a very dangerous proposition.

One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you be so fortunate …

To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.
