Matrix, you are so sweet! Thanks.

As of this post, Mika still doesn't have a sanctuary <unless the Shelter was contacted - or my supervisors contacts given good news> Of course you know where I'll be the moment I arrive at work today. Smile

I wish you all could meet Mika. He's quite a wonderful animal.

Praying for good news.

Helen, God love you! Thanks

All have a terrific day ~

Hi All ~

Visited with Mika today, he and I saying our goodbyes. Difficult seeing such a magnificent animal locked in a cement enclosure. I'm not allowed bringing Mika outdoors because of his unpredictable behaviour and of course the shelter's liability clause. Mika and I interacted well,
yet I understand the concerns of my co-workers. I understand more the rights of every wild animal to live thier life as nature intended - not be subject to harrassment, capture, and human exploitation.

< wishing Mika had an endangered species clause in his 'surrender by "owner"' contract > How damned convenient for hybrid "breeders".

Stradee...

Okay...I misunderstood your post re Mika. It sounds like you're on the right track for finding Mika a place to live, though. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! He shouldn't have to pay for the mistakes of humans...

Stradee...

I'm so sorry for the way your day has gone. When my last post went up, I hadn't seen the one you'd left right before it...I had to take care of something in the middle of writing it and completely missed you there.

At least Mika knows you care about him...you've given him the knowledge that all humans aren't bad...

I don't even like it when birds are in cages. There's something wrong about that.

Matrix, thanks.

I believe Mika understands how I feel for his predicament. He's certainly touched my heart. Today though, the stress of confinement beginning to take its toll. I am very sad for Mika.

The nature of my Shelter is heartbreaking for me as well as for my co-workers. We work diligently trying to save the lives of abused and abandoned animals, staff doing a terrific job if I may say so meself Smile Its a humbling experience seeing wonderful animals give us their trust - and in return, we care for them, give them many smooches and hugs,
and hope to find them good, loving, permanent homes.

Yes, animals are euthanized, but we also fight like hell to keep the ones that can be saved alive. I'd rather see no animal killed, and so would the people I work with. Unfortunately, the reality is - many people don't always understand animals are feeling, breathing, sentient beings.
Our shelter also receives sick and dieing animals. We are grateful that their last days spent in a warm, caring enviorment.

Well, my babies here at home vieing for their humans attention. The herd's been very patient wilst I've been trying to find a sanctuary <and they're also happy I haven't brought wolfie to their house!>

Soon as I receive news regarding Mika, I'll post here.

Thanks

Hoping that Mika finds a home -- heartbreaking, all those wolf cubs & wolf-hybrids. We used to have a place in Washington, Wolf Haven, that took in wolves. Even then, they had to be in cages -- large for a cage, but small for a wolf.

There used to a wolf-hybrid at one of the stables where I rode. He needed the openness and was happy there, loved the horses & extremely gentle. He died well -- was running in one of the fields and suddenly stopped & fell dead.

Stradee, praying for Mika's finding a good shelter. I so agree with Matrix that hybrids are caught between the wild and domestication. It is such a shame that so many just want to say that they "own" a wolf.

Beth, thanks again for your effort to make Anita's life a little better--chocolate can make just about anything better! So glad her son is in contact with you--it probably is a comfort to him as much as it is to Anita.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL THE WILD CLICKERS!!!

Just wanted to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.


Please don't forget those who are much less fortunate than you...The food banks in this area are struggling to feed those in need and you might be surprised to hear who they are. I imagine that this is happening all over the country now.

We are hoping for the best for Mika from here in TX...

Yeah, ehBeth, being blindfolded means you must rely on braille - - - Hmmm, I like the sound of braille!!! OK OK it's an innocent remark!!

That reminds me =
Have you all heard of the new computer programs being experimented with at the Univ of Wisconsin?? It's called Sensory Substitution Tech - and involves substituting the body's senses for normal eyesight. Currently, the researchers have found that the tongue is the most sensitive site to conduct the experiment. They have placed a stamp sized sensor on the tongue of a person who has been blind from birth - with very little practice the person can navigate through a strange house without bumping into things - they can take walks outside without the aid of a cane or dog - and they have been able to identify letters of the alphabet placed in front of them. I think this is GREAT news. The premise of the experiment is that it is the brain that actually gives us the feeling of looking even though we have the impression that it is our eyes that do it. An analogy given in clarification was of a person blindfolded and allowed to use a cane to navigate - the "feeling" of determining obstacles for the person "seemed" to be at the tip end of the cane - but, we all know that the cane has no feeling. It is actually the brain "projecting" itself out to the end of the cane. Well, the tongue is doing the same thing that the cane does in the above analogy. It is identifying variable signals sent to it electronically by a computer and is relaying that information to the brain - which projects itself to the tiny camera which initially picks up the information and sends it to the computer which sends it to the brain. With practice, it is as if the tiny camera is the persons "eyes".
