Animal Tales - 13

Posted by Rosie

Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts from all over the world.  It runs from Tuesday morning thought to Friday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts.  

Saari's diet continues although I have not had her weighed this week. Stealing some butter (twice), 2 brioches and the dinner of a visiting dog may have not helped her keep on track this week!

But without further ado I can now announce the results of the Best Animal Name in the coveted BAAs.  Thank you to everyone who voted.

Drum roll please ....

And the winner is:

(The) Firkin (Cat)

(although I do suspect a bit of late vote rigging!)

  Thank you to everyone who joined in last week, despite many of you being busy with half term.  We got to meet some new pets including Lottie, Joey and Boris as well as some new chicks.

Feel free to come and add your animal related posts to the linky below.  The posts can be old or new and as varied as the animals who we share our world with.  There's a Pinterest Board with pictures from all the linked blogs which you can see here and if you tweet with the hashtag #AnimalTales I'll retweet you.  Just give me a nudge if I appear to have forgotten you.

Full details of the linky can be found here and once again can I remind people to comment on a few of the others who link up.  It's only polite and keeps the thing working!


  1. Oh poor Saari. The horror of a diet!

  2. Sorry, no animal tales from me down south...but I'll do my best to spread the word as always.

  3. What a gorgeous cat. If I ever write about our cat, Gypsy, - or any other animal - then I will be here! Such a great idea for a linky. Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo x

    1. He is now a galumphing great monster who can purr so loudly you'd think a plane was coming in to land and is a terrible food thief ... so is supposed to be an outdoor cat but is regularly found asleep and purring loudly in the sofa or in the front of the fire.

      Please do write about Gypsy, it has been lovely meeting everyone's pets and reading all the interesting Animal Tales.
