This and That Day!

Welcome to another session of Louisdog's This and That!

THIS:

We have a very famous kitty here in Vancouver. His name is Benjamin Button, but is called Ben Ben. He is known as "the saddest cat in the world".


Ben Ben is orange, like my kitty, Hazuzu

When he was brought into the SPCA,  BenBen had a crushed spine, a crumpled ear, and cuts and bruises all over his body. They think he might have been attacked by a larger animal.
Beb Ben wouldn't drink, eat or play, and the vet thought that he might never walk again. He was in pain and they thought he would probably die. He was scheduled to be put down because it was felt that even if he survived, he would require specialized care and would need someone with special qualifications to care for him.

A woman who worked in an emergency vet clinic heard about Ben Ben through her work and she decided to try to adopt this deserving cat. She showed up at the shelter just in the nick of time because Ben Ben was scheduled to be euthanized the next day. The SPCA was happy to let her take the kitty home.

You can read about Ben Ben in this Huffington Post article.

THAT:

The other day when I was at PetSmart I saw a bunny. There has never been a rabbit I didn't like and I never bark at them. I always want to be friends. Here I am trying to check him out:

I like bunnies a lot!
I didn't get to spend quality time with this pawticular rabbit because Mimi was afraid that he might be afraid of me. So we left right away.

THIS:

The snow is still with us and it's colder than ever. I don't mind it a bit!

These dogs like the snow

THAT:
I am furry excited about my new job as Blogville's director of Arts & Entertainment. I have a lot of ideas fur projects that we can work on. It will be a fun year fur all of us, I am sure.


I am a lucky dog!

Well that is enough this and that fur today. I hope you are all having a wonderfur week and I'll hopefully be seeing all of you around Blogville.

From Vancouver,

  2. Ben Ben is a truly inspirational cat! Standard Dachshunds were bred to hunt badgers, and the Minis (like me) were bred to hunt rabbits, so my mom would probably make me stay away from that little bunny!

  5. Wow, I'm so glad BenBen got a wonderful peep to adopt him! I like the snow too and I gotta bark that I like bunnies, but I usually want to chase them. Except my Blogville pal, Speedy because he's wonderful. :)

    Oh but I am envious of your snow. Just dull and wet here in Scotland.
