I went into the city yesterday for a free classical violin and piano concert. 🎻 🎶 It was wonderful and the instrumentalists got a standing ovation. Afterwards had lunch at a vegan Asisan restaurant. All in all a very nice way to spend the day.

First meal for My tiltocatl albopilosos tarantula. or nicaraguan curly hair as its commonly called. Its been underground the past 3 months and should have molted even thoough i dont notice any gain in size aside from being more fuzzy😅
Was just gonna ask for a photo and there it was 👌 what a fuzzy lil fellow....

Many years ago a friend had a tarantula named Fred- Fred felt so funny crawling around on my hands and I asked my friend if Fred knew him..... He looked at me strangely and said" Kwik,Fred is a bug"

Funny but tarantulas seem more than just an insect to me,I guess it's the furry body and they seem to want to stay on your hands and hang out- I dunno,I certainly don't like " bugs",especially spiders ever since my near fatal encounter with a brown recluse yet Tarantulas remind me more of a hairy squid,lol

I’ve been reading about “Cat Island,” in Shanghai, a new refuge for stray cats! Boy do they look clean, healthy, well taken care of! (You can see the short video on a website called Sixth Tone). There are 400,000 stray cats in Shanghai alone. This place also TNRs, and it come with a spotless indoor pagoda for their “winter house.” People can come to adopt and learn how to take care of a cat properly. What interests me most (and maybe it’s my imagination) is that ferals seem to have regional differences…I wonder if there are feral subspecies. :think:

Congrats! :bouquet: Glad your cousin was able to help put your living room back together.
Me too- I'm just thrilled ...the cats are all fine with it as well,I kept the litter box very near where it was and will gradually get it to the corner..... their little beds are not moved either or their kibble & water dispenser ❤

I'm so tickled to have a nice living room but even more so that the cats are unphased by everything being moved around,it even better now that the sofa covers the mirrored wall and Timmy is just trotting around without any hesitancy as he was seeing his own reflection..... all great stuff!
