For Thine Shot Glasses Are the Power and the Glory

New giftuses from Zooillogix readers and friends and, I must say, they are freakin outstanding. First and foremost, a long long overdue thank you to Liz of Surplus Cats who sent a Pittsburgh Zoo shot glass so long ago Ben hadn't even had his "operation" yet. It's an instant classic if I do say so myself, and I do.

Secondly, reader Emma has really outdone herself, and pretty much everyone else (except Liz who is exempt from being outdone) by sending four separate Vancouver Aquarium shot glasses and, as if that was not enough, a letter with shiny bird stickers!

Emma asked if I might point out the work of Greyhaven, an exotic bird sanctuary in Canada, which looks like a place Zooillogix should be bringing attention to even if there wasn't a massive shot glass bribe involved. Emma told us a bit about Greyhaven:

"I'm a big fan of their work. They are super small but work their tail-feathers off to take in abandoned and unwanted parrots. They have a permanent resident named Spook a Patagonian Conure. Poor thing was illegally brought into Canada and lost an eye in transport. It is suspected he was stolen from his nest. When he came to Greyhaven, he had plucked nearly all his feathers out. Sounds like he had a real wanker of an owner. So he has one eye, a pretty head of feathers and otherwise looks like a walking mini butterball turkey." So if you're in the market for bird adoption, check them out!

As many of you know, I collect zoo and aquarium shot glasses. I have the world's largest and probably only collection and it is my pride and joy. When I die, my children will most likely be left poor in "money" but rich in shot glasses. A legacy we can all be proud of. I have two additions to…

That's a great idea to post all this stuff. I need to look in my garage for those shot glasses. I remember that my grandpa had sooo many of them. Just need to dig in the garage and send some nice pics.
