My Life with Animals: Loki’s recovery part two – the great poop watch of 2012

If this content seems odd and off-topic, bear with me as I tie this to my blog’s subject matter. Autumn always draws my attention to the fact that the year will soon end. When this year ends it’ll be 9 years since the Great Recession began. Can you think of many places that have scarcely recovered after all these years? Let me know. As for me, the still bleak economic condition of my hometown of Redding, California always sticks out.

Despite a prevalent impression that there’s nothing to see or do here however, Redding has notable points of interests. Turtle Bay is one of them. During tough times, Turtle Bay continued to adapt and improve operations, including the current transition to a more sustainable business model.

      That’s so mysterious. Hm, I don’t know why they would stop appearing! Now that you mention it though, my traffic as been slow lately!

      Speaking of disagreeableness, I just touched Nikita’s wing while she was chewing my sleeve and asked, “Can I see your wing?” – asking her if I can spread it out and look at it. She turns her head, looks at me, and opens her beak slightly (kind of a threat) and I stop touching her wing and just go, “Ok, I guess that’s a ‘no.'” Haha… -sigh-
