Seizures are scary in people and pets. It would be great to know what triggers them, so they could be prevented. I've had a child, 2 dogs, and a cat who had seizures. I'm not even sure how I'd class the cat's type, I didn't realize that what was happening to him were seizures until he was gone.

"In a study published today (April 27) in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery, the researchers looked at data from 96 cats, including the type of seizure, how long it lasted and what sound appeared to trigger it. They found that some cats — like some humans — suffer from seizures caused by sound, known as "audiogenic reflex seizures." In the cats, certain sounds triggered absence (or nonconvulsive) seizures; myoclonic seizures, characterized by brief muscle jerks; or generalized tonic-clonic seizures, in which the animal loses consciousness and its body stiffens and jerks for several minutes."
"Both pedigree and nonpedigree cats can have these seizures, but they were most common in Birman-breed cats. Seizures were also more common in cats ages 10 to 19, and the average age of onset was 15 years, the researchers said."

The U.K. charity International Cat Care reached out to veterinary specialists after receiving surprising complaints from cat owners: Their feline companions were apparently having seizures in response to high-pitched sounds.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game is waiting for a bear family of 5 to be together so they can be killed safely for the humans :(
UPDATE: Fish and Game has decided to relocate the bears following public outcry and a call from Alaska Gov. Bill Walker. - http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=pressreleases.pr04182015

The mother black bear and her four 1-year-old cubs woke up early from hibernation this year. Their usual plant diet hadn't grown yet, so they went into Government Hill, Anchorage, Alaska, searching for food. It was early, so people weren't yet being careful with their garbage.
There was hope that they would be able to live with the bears if they were cautious, but on Wednesday the media and the public swarmed the town for pictures.
"We had news crews coming in, we had professional wildlife photographers coming in, we had gawkers coming in and they were all crowding her," Kesler said. The group surrounded the bears, forcing them up into a tree.
The mother became protective and began huffing at the crowd — a characteristic sound used when bears feel threatened.
A biologist from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game witnessed the incident. The next night, Fish and Game announced that it would euthanize the family in the interest of public safety.
Only 60 people have been killed in black bear attacks in the use over 100 years. Of those 92 percent were male bears and 88 percent were not bears that were startled at the garbage cans, but stalking the humans for food.
"We might have had a shot at getting them through," Kesler said. "If human behavior hadn't sealed the deal."

The song, Never smile at a crocodile comes to mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=5MAHad3hUP8 The people in this village do more than that. Their kids swim alongside them and they can be seen using the ridges by their mouths to wash their clothes! I think these crocs are just waiting for a chance to sample some foreign cuisine.

It's a girl!!!
Well she comes to us at about 13 years old. Someone dropped her off at the beach shack with a bowl of water and a bag of food, and eventually she decided to adopt us. She's well mannered, doesn't bark, doesn't even steal the cat's food. She just came from the vets with a clean bill of health. (Aside from one tooth that will need to be extracted.)
Oh yeah, and she has the stupidest name ever for anything but a poodle....Frenchy! It's actually tattoed in her ear. Maybe we can think of something that rhymes with it.

Orphan Black Makeup

I think Tatiana Maslany does an amazing job of all her clones but the best is the cross over clones, like when she is Sarah being Rachel, and Alison being Sarah like in the first episode of season 3.

Junco hit the window. It was stunned but finally hopped up on my arm promptly pooped, then stared at me for a bit, and flew away.

I don't think this is rare here. I am pleased that the Toronto Police Force supports him.

Still ice as far as I can see. Lake Huron, Ontario April 3, 2015.

Quick snap shots because it was bleeping cold with the wind blowing very strongly off the lake. I'm not sure we'll be wanting to swim on May 24. This time a few years ago,  I actually was sun bathing and went and laid in 1.5 feet of water because I was hot and wanted to cool off. Yesterday I was in winter wear!
