Ha-roo everyone, its me, Moo, time again for the View from the Moo. Jack asked if he could use my post to alert everyone about a potentially poisonous problem facing the penguins in New Zealand affected by the recent oil spill. There's a rather unusual rescue effort taking place! Take it away, Jack!
Thanks Moo. Here's the deal: New Zealand's penguins are being rounded up & washed to remove most of the deadly oil, but not all can be washed out. Some wonderful penguin-loving peeps from around the world are knitting them little Penguin sweaters to put on them to prevent them from preening & ingesting bits of oil still in their feathers. How cool is that?
The pengies are released only after they are fully oil-free and have built their strength back up by exercising in a pool. Then the sweaters are used for more incoming penguins, poor things!
A lady who owns a wool shop came up with the plan and I say "Four paws up!" A-roos to yous!
I think I'll offer my services to the rescue team in New Zealand, after all, I'm an expert Pengie-herder! (click to see me demo my mad herding skills.) I expect they can use a few more helping paws! Thanks, Moo - now back to woo!
Woozers, Jack! Those Pengies sure look cute in their itty bitty sweaters! If woo go to New Zealand to help, can I have your treats till woo get back?
Speaking of treats , REMIND YOUR PEEPS THIS WEEK TO GO DONATE A BOX TO YOUR LOCAL SHELTER.... and pose fur a pic or two with your treat jar/box, etc. to post this coming Saturday! ....Because every furkid deserves a treat!
And that's this week's View from the Moo,
Miss Moo & guest blogger Jack a-roo
