cute animals



More than 1,300 ewes and their lambs are back at work on the Fort Ord National Monument in California, a part of the BLM’s National Conservation Lands.

The BLM manages the sheep grazing program to reduce fire danger, encourage the growth of native plants, and control non-native species. To celebrate spring and the return of the sheep, Fort Ord National Monument and FORT Friends will be hosting Sheep Appreciation Day on Saturday, April 4th.

The kitten was an orphan, left abandoned so the person decided to take her on. She introduced her to her pet Labrador and its like the dog just knew. The pair get on beautifully well together, playing and staying with each other all the time. Ponzu brings up the small vulnerable kitten as her own.
