I was rescued by a firefighter 👨‍🚒. He found me in a box on a set of rail road tracks in Corbin, KY. When I lived there, I lived near the fire hall too. I’d get to see and hear the fire trucks all the time. Including me meowing like their siren 🚨.

So it’s official now!

Anyways Special thanks to all the men, women and animals that serve in their communities fighting fires.

Zika and your pets


The Zika virus became a widespread concern for travelers beginning in the spring of 2016. Travelers were warned not to visit certain areas, notably tropical climates, deemed vulnerable to Zika outbreaks. #Zika #ZikaVirus

The Zika virus became a widespread concern for travelers beginning in the spring of 2016. Travelers were warned not to visit certain areas, notably tropical climates, deemed vulnerable to Zika outbreaks. #Zika #ZikaVirus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito. While many people can overcome a Zika infection, it’s particularly dangerous to pregnant women and their fetuses and women who hope to become pregnant. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects that affect the fetus’s brain.

Since the Zika virus garnered international attention, certain areas in North America have been affected, including Florida and New York. Zika has understandably raised concern about the impact the virus can have should it spread even further. While the illness is usually mild, with symptoms such as fever, aches and pains lasting as little as one week, pet owners are unsure if the virus poses a threat to their four-legged friends.

World Lion Day


World Lion Day – A Day to honor the “Big Cat” feline the Lion. #LionDay #WorldLionDay #Lions

Not World Lyin’ Day! Just saying … Roar!

World Lion Day

This day is held annually on August 10. It has been celebrated since 2013 by Rae Kokeš and David Youldon from the African Lion & Environmental Research Trust (ALERT).

Maybe take the family and go to the zoo and see some Lions, the King of the Jungle.

“I was not the lion, but it fell upon me to give the lion’s roar”

Winston Churchill, politician, 1874-1965

World Lion Day was created to act as an awareness-building vehicle. The campaign aims to highlight the plight of African and Asiatic lion whilst also demonstrating our shared global heritage of the species. The lion plays a significant role biologically, culturally, symbolically, economically and more. It is hoped that the recognition of the species’ worldwide importance will result in more active conservation worldwide also.1

Did you know there are lions in the Bible? One example is Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Check out Daniel 6.
