Friday Ark #124 19 comments

We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?

Do link to the Ark every week!

You can find out how to board the Friday Ark at the Arkive page.

NB 2/2:: Access to Modulator was down from late afternoon PST 2/1 until sometime in the wee hours 2//2 because of network problems in the Atlanta area that impacted our hosting service. This has also delayed receipt of boarding email sent directly or via BlogCarnival. Boardings will be delayed.

Note for Haloscan Users:

Over the past month or so Haloscan started (the end of July) handling of trackbacks has improved though it is still pretty broken for carnival type posts. Now, instead of rejecting every attempt to ping it accepts single pings for a while and then will start rejecting them. I will keep trying to track back to Haloscan boarders but can make no guarantees for any particular week.

Note for Typepad Users:

Typepad continues to behave similar to Haloscan for trackbacks. I been able to get trackbacks to most, if not all, Typepad based boarders. I have to do it one at a time and wait a while in between pings but Typepad does not go into semi-permanent rejection mode like Haloscan.

    Here’s a photo from yesterday as my faithful hound tried to figure out what all this stuff on the grass was, and how to get across the yard without stepping on it.Have a great weekend and remember the Friday Ark….

    Aisle or window?

    I know how Vazra would answer that question.  He’ll take a window seat anytime.

    You must have been a beautiful baby

    I love you, Baby Cakes. You are so adorable. Not to mention regal, in the King-of-the-Beasts sense which is your birthright. Want some treats? Let’s go for it. Update: More treats at the elegant 149th Carnival of the Cats at

    Bazel Just Because

    Looking thru the old pics and found this one, kindof like it. Such a dignified cat.

    Reading the entrails

    It wasn’t quite an Instalanche — the gold standard — but it was far more dignified than cheap shots bagged from blogging about the irrepressible SpongeBob SquarePants or the inexpressible Britney’s crotch. We speak of a blip — 200 more

    Under The Chair

    Playing around with cropping here and yes, that is Meowza. I liked the effect the flashy gives his eyes. Haven’t played too much cause I’ve been so sleepy, Thursday, I just kept nodding off although I managed to stay awake to watch Dr McD…

    On Top Of It

    Sitting on top of the same chair Meowza was under, at the same time, one Klarissa who looks a little possessed.
    As opposed to Izzy here who just looks stupid standing out in the middle of the street. It’s a wonder he’s still alive.
