Here are all six of my foster kittens. They will be up for adoption at the end of August at Texas County Animal Shelter. It is a no kill shelter in Houston, Missouri. They all piled up after a dish of kitten milk. They are all eating dry cat food now and using the litter pan. They just need to be older to handle the stress of a new home/shelter.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
