Ugh I know I should just give up but this still annoys me :/

(This is from Rats are Awesome- RAA- on FB)

I’m not mad at these people for re-posting because most people just don’t understand sourcing issues on the internet and they’re just sharing a cute picture but I hate that these pictures are everywherrrrrre without a source. 

And if it were just a random photograph of one of my rats I wouldn’t really care but I worked hard on the original “ratvocates” idea and it took me a long time to come up with the phrases and make the cards and take all the pictures and it’s just nice when I actually get credit. And linked to the blog so people can see my other stuff. And they usually just post this one of Remi and people should be able to see all of them :P

Blarg. I see it on RAA a lot and I usually comment but I’m not on many other rat groups so I’m sure it goes uncorrected there. Oh well. Can’t get them all.

Philip has become addicted to tickling & now he stands poised like this whenever I get near the cage & as soon as I tickle him, he goes galloping off, crushing his smaller cagemates & tripping over boxes & whatnot, & then he comes running back for more tickles.

Gahhhh what a squish

Ha I’m so proud of myself. I saw this picture on tumblr a few days ago and I was like hmm that looks like Mandara- a female gorilla from the National Zoo where I volunteer. I liked it so I could go back to it later and today I reverse image searched the picture and sure enough it’s from a flickr account here. He has pictures from zoos all over the east coast but this set is definitely from DC- I see other pictures of the rest of our gorilla family too. Go me and my gorilla face recognition. Here is the original source for the picture. The baby is Kibibi, who is 5 now :PThis guy is an awesome photographer. I love this one of Lucy, one of the orangs at the National Zoo.

Teehee. She is a pretty calm baby! She is pooping on me a lot so I know she is nervous but look at this face- I can’t even be annoyed at her. She is doing a good job adjusting to her new home :)

Throwback Thursday to baby Rosie! Ah yes before she was fat :P
