No One Person Can Do Everything But...
Together We Can Do Just About Anything!

At Animal Blogging With Dill The Cat, we believe in supporting those who embrace, enhance, celebrate, and provide a healthy quality of life for animals.  On November 7th Denver voters can vote for better city infrastructure by supporting and voting YES for ballots 2A through 2G, and that includes 2B that will provide Denver Zoo a new hospital and address the marine mammal habitats!
(Thank you T. for letting us know and we followed up with our Denver Zoo newsletter to provide the following link back to the zoo.) For more information--
If you are new to Denver we encourage you to take the few minutes it requires to register to vote if you have not done so.

                    The Essence Of An Animal
A partial picture of an animal that conveys the complete animal is their essence. The majority of these pictures were taken at Denver Zoo. Take a look.
                          
   
 

Engage. Enthuse. Educate. Entertain. Explore. 
Hello! At Animal Blogging With Dill The Cat we believe animals help connect people to each other. So wherever you are in the world, thank you for visiting Dill.  As people from around the world come to Dill, we too read about other places in relationship to animals. So with deep compassion we turn towards France and the crime against humanity in the butchery of Vince, an endangered white rhino. Under the Keyboard section on Dill, we have added our sympathy and a link to Vince's home zoo. Please visit it. 
 
Did you know there are pumpkins that are really blue?  It's true!  Check out Dill's Blue page.  Creepy Crawlies, they need love too!  Maybe at a distance works better for you? Check out my Creepy Crawlies video under The Ark that includes a zebra stripe creepy crawlies and one so green an emerald would be jealous of it. I posted a few autumn sunsets and titled them Halloween Sunsets. Animal Blogging With Dill The Cat honors black cats 365 days a year.  Check out our sidebar.   
 
Given a brown or black bear can both have a mixture of both colors how does one tell the bears apart?  Rain...such a beautiful scent!  But why does rain smell sooooo good?  Can a fish really have lips?  There is an animal pattern found in every specie.  Can you guess what it is?  All of these questions are answered on Dill, and much more. 
 
We are of the belief a worthy zoo is really a different kind of university because after visiting it is almost impossible not to come away with a greater awareness, if not an education from staff and volunteers about creatures we share the earth with. At Denver Zoo, a home to thousands of endangered animals, they are often a part of the awareness/learning programs.  Presently and until October 2017 Denver Zoo has a new educational exhibit that teaches people about very different kinds of animals, those who once were--dinosaurs. Check out The Ark further down this page. 
 
 Under the Keyboard located at the bottom of this page we have placed a message regarding Houston Zoo.  Please be sure to check it out.  Lives have been saved. Now its time to restore the quality of them.  Also under the Keyboard we created a new topic called The Ark Keepers.  Be sure to check it out also.
 
Our up close encounter with okapis and a hippopotamus at Denver Zoo was such a profound, beautiful experience we came away with seeing Denver Zoo as another form of an ark. We wrote about that day and hope that you take a moment and read it - Our Best Day Ever At The Zoo--the link is on the top sidebar. It was our best day ever at the zoo but even more than that, humbly it changed our lives for the better. ENJOY!

                                    BROWN OR BLACK? 



It is not as easy as it seems, to identify a brown or black bear by their colors when both kind of bears can be other colors including a mixture of brown and black. But we will make it easy.  Promise.  Just scroll down to The Ark.

 

                                                          
                                                                    
                                                                   BUTTERS!
Butters! is our senior cat who came from a shelter.  He’s grumpy and beautiful.  Butters! is not playful but likes his ears scratched.  He seldom acknowledges his name intentionally written with an exclamation, and though aloof Butters! know he is loved. Our home is nearly 100 years old and have the original radiators.  In the winter, we can find Butters! there 90% of the time, stretched out, warming his old bones.   

                                          RANDOM DAYS

Everywhere I go I take my camera and take pictures where I find them. I'd like to share some of my random day pictures with you. 
                                                             

I found this harvest of beautiful, colorful pumpkins where I did not expect to see it--at Home Depot.
