Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.
Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

i feel like it’s really important that thelindsaytuggey sees this
Oh…oh my. :3 :D
State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens.
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

It’s really close, please sign guys!
killing one species to ‘protect’ another is a horrible approach to anything. Have people not learned by now? And how many other animals would this inevitably poison? Ones that would also not only ingest the poison, but the poisoned bird carcasses.
What is wrong with people.
Crows and Ravens hold a sacred position in the Mythos of North America, they should be honored and revered not murdered.
This is an incredibly stupid idea for many reasons.
Ravens eat many pests and carrion. Killing the ravens will increase the numbers of these down the road, as there will be one less predator for them.
As was said earlier, other species are very likely going to eat the poison and decrease their numbers as well. Crows, blackbirds, and many other species within the same family as crows and other opportunistic feeders are very likely to have a negative effect on their population because of this.
Taking away the predator of a species who’s low numbers are cause primarily by things other than predation is a horrible idea because you’ve taken away a source of population control that often times, will take out sick, wounded, or animals in poor health from the population so that the strong and healthy ones can survive.
Can we talk about the episode descriptions for Regular Show on Netflix?
