I now volunteer at a raptor rehab center working toward my federal permit. I've been assigned an owl to care for and train for educational presentations. He is my partner.

He was untouchable by anyone. He has been there three years and was on the euthanization list, they try every person that comes in to volunteer on him until they find a match that he responds with. Well, I'm that person with him! He has a reprieve and to me he is as sweet as can be. After only a week, we are out in public and showing off for the camera.

Lemme tell you, it was supposed to be a raptor show, but I was surrounded by hungry cougars.

All wanting my number and wanting to know what I was doing afterwards.

I sent pix and video to my x-BIL so they would get back to the harpy.

I can't hear you over the sound of my awesomeness!!!

That video clip really brought a smile to my face. What a great story. Thank you for cheering me up on an off Friday night.

Love that you bonded with this creature no one could get close too.

Women, animals, what's the difference?

They both want to kill you.

It was the wealthy cougar women sepnding their ex-husbands' hard earned money.

I do check out your thread, Pariah. I just though time and a girl friend would have softened your general lumping together of women as the bad guys. Certainly your ex-wife qualifies and deserves your...hate...for lack of a better term, but all of us?
