Cat Versus Bird

The extremities of advocacy

This year for some reason or other the eternal hunt of our beloved cats for our equally beloved feathered friends appears to have created more controversy and has made more news than for as long as I can recall. Illinois Gov. Adlai Stevenson had reason to say no more on the subject.

Feline Parasite Kills Sea Otters

Kitty litter is the culprit

Cat feces can contain Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite that gets into feline systems from the eating of infected rodents, birds or other small animals, according to Dr. Melissa Miller of the California Department of Fish and Game.

A Smudge of a Super-giant

Like Antares, our own sun is destined to burn red

As the sun sets around 7:30 this week, a brilliant point of light pierces the darkening skies low in the west. Jupiter is the brightest light visible, and although it climbs no higher, there’s little mistaking its steady yellow-orange glow. Antares, the heart of Scorpio, shines directly below, halfway to the horizon, but is a ruddy smudge by comparison.

The shadows cast by the tall stalks shielded me from the blazing afternoon sun, and the camouflage clothes I wore minimized my presence. Placing an ammo bag and a soft cooler in the row beside me, I gently broke open the slim, Fox 16-gauge I was going to shoot that day.

Where We Live

Wednesday Night Races

At summer’s end, all us species are racing against time
