AND SO ENDS ANOTHER WEEK WITHOUT ME BECOMING UNEXPECTEDLY RICH!

I found this picture on the Internet and it reminded me that the outdoor Mamma Cat has just brought her two remaining kittens inside the house.  Although I shudder at the idea of more catz, I am less worried now that they are out of the awful heat.  We’ll see if they make it past infancy…….distemper is a major part of a wild cat population and kittens are most susceptible…..sigh

Kraken

This Massive Kraken Was Spotted Underwater In A Japanese Harbor

BY THE RAINFOREST SITE

Opportunities to see giant squid in open waters are extremely rare. Although these mammoth sea creatures live in all of the world’s oceans, they prefer to make their homes in deep waters, out of sight of divers. Akinobu Kimura lucked out in his chance encounter with a giant squid in the relatively shallow waters of Toyama Bay in Japan. He was even able to capture it on video.

Kimura says that his interest in the creature pushed aside any fear, despite the squid’s bursts of ink and its attempts to ensnare him in its enormous tentacles. Although the squid did not injure the diver, he said that the squid’s strong suckers caused him some pain. Click to read CNN article

While the 12-foot-long squid seems huge, it actually is a fairly small representative of its species; giant squid can grow to as long as 43 feet.
