And if you need a daily laugh, as I do these days, AND you have a twitter account, then by all means check out Paul Bronks aka slender sherbet. I will not link as the profanity is constant, but funny, funny, funny, and all about animals.

On streaming TV there are programs at various large zoos that feature animals and their handlers. I watch those shows often and enjoy watching the day-to-day zoo operations. The more I watch the animals the more I respect them. Each animal has a name, and some make laugh. Names like "febreeze" for a skunk, "spike" for a porcupine.

These programs provide better entertainment than most other TV shows.

We have ducks as our entertainment. And three cats. And one dog.

Here is a very safe twitter link that will bring a smile each morning: https://twitter.com/caenhillcc

I have been feeding my backyard critters for years. But until the pandemic I just threw it out in the morning and left.
Since "covid" I have taken the time to feed my rabbits, squirrels, possums, and many birds. Then sit there and watch a while.
At this time the possums tolerate me with about 15 feet. Some birds remain skittish, some not so much. Same with the squirrels. Though I after a bit of patience and tossing peanuts, I have one squirrel that now runs over to me wanting a peanut. I does not take it from my hand yet, but does come right up to my hand and waits for me to drop it.
One squirrel loves to play with a half of corn cob like a cat. it tosses it around and fetches it, does flips with it, rolls around with it. etc.
My cat is getting jealous of the attention I am giving to the critters. And, using me as a distraction to sneak up on them.
Then its interesting to watch various critters interacting with each other.

I thought It was funny during the lockdown here......how many people said, " there's a lot more animals and birds around because of the lockdown ".... Like there was some human caused reason why animals were normally hiding in fear in their lairs and nest's. It didn't seem to occur to them that it was themselves that normally hide away in their lairs and nest's and the animals were just going about their normal daily routines....the only difference was people now had the time to sit still and watch them.....

In our family, stuffed animals were given appropriate names: a rabbit named Carrotine, a toucan named Froot Loops, a zebra named Sergeant Major, a lobster named Newburg, a couple of lions named Richard and MGM, a sheep named Ramsey, a tan-coloured (sorta the colour of Graham crackers) dog named Graham Barker, a parrot named Crackers, a couple of dogs with hearts stitched on, named Valentine and Hartley ...

Our late Sheltie, being a Scottish breed, was given the Scottish name Angus. Thread drift: Back in Toronto, when the Mrs. first thought of getting a dog, she wanted a Westie. She was going to call it Mr. MacGregor, from the Peter Rabbit books. She would call it Mac for short, Problem: We had a friend named Mac (now deceased), so she asked him if it would be okay to call a dog Mac. He said, "I'd be honoured!" When Mac came to visit us here in Kingston, the Mrs. explained that she didn't think the name Mac fit the Sheltie, thus the name Angus. She hoped he wasn't offended. Mac simply said, "Angus is my middle name!"
