Pole Dancing with Bonnie, the Penguin Siamese

I posted this video on my facebook page, but thought folks might get a kick out of it here.

When you see the video get real close to Bonnie, it's because I had to unstick her claw from the fish. LOL!

I tied the fish toy to the pole to get her to stay long enough to shoot video of her, but she does this all the time without the toy. I have a still digital photo which, I believe, is posted on the blog already, but since I found one of my old HP digital cameras would work with one of my new camera's card, I wanted to video her.

The video seems to end abruptly, but the it is the limitations of the camera. It only record video for approx 2 mins.

So, sit back & enjoy pole dancing with Bonnie Blu, the Penguin Siamese!

Red River SPCA on Facebook

Recently, I have been dedicating some time to helping a local animal rescue group.

The Red River SPCA is located in Cooke County, Texas, which borders Oklahoma on the Red River. It is operated completely by volunteers led by the SPCA investigator, Tommie Kirksmith-Newman. It is known as a no-kill shelterless rescue. What this means is there is no actual shelter location. All animals are kept in foster care. Because of this, they need to keep a good number of foster homes available and animals must be adopted or it limits the number of new rescues they are able to actually rescue.

The Red River SPCA does have a listing on PetFinder.
The listing can be accessed here: Red River SPCA on PetFinder

The Red River SPCA is also now on facebook.
Here you can visit them & "like" them on facebook:

If you are looking for an adoptable cat, they also have rescued cats/kittens.
The cats are not listed on petfinder at the moment or on their facebook page, but they do rescue them, as well. A few of these cats are available at the Sherman PetSmart store.

If you live in the Texoma area, Sherman/Denison area, Gainesville area, Cooke & Grayson Counties area, north Texas area, Dallas area, or southern Oklahoma area, please remember to check out the Red River SPCA for adoptable dogs & cats.
