iki, I love the mustache! Sooo cute! Are those the goldies?
And hte new girl is adorable. She has such a stunned look on her face, like, "What the heck? Where am I? Who is that?"
Awww, demon kitty looks so cute to me. Of course, it's been 7 or 8 years since I've had a kitten. The rest of my kitties all came to me full-grown and conveniently spayed/neutered. :)
EDIT II: Nope, snails would add ammonia and plants would actually suck up nitrates. Maybe they suck up nitrite too, I can't quite remember.
Those are my sister's goldie's. I picked out the little guy, otherwise she would of brought home a koi or shubkin
New girls looks almost identical to India, I had to get her. Plus she was there for a while.
demon kitty looks cute but he is a devil and gets into everything. He LOVES this one blanket of mine. Grace takes him out of my room and puts him in hers only for him to return 5 minutes later.

From Japan earthquake and animal rescue
Dear Friends around the world,
April 22 in 2011 became a sad day no animal lovers can forget.
After the great earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011, the nuclear power plant in Fukushima exploded, contaminating the surrounding area and forcing the residents to evacuate immediately.
When the people evacuated in a hurry, they were not allowed to take their pets in the officially provided buses. Of course, there was no way for the farmers to save cows, pigs, hens, ostriches etc. But the refugees first thought they would be able to go back soon.
Unfortunately, however, they were not.
On April 22, a sudden official announcement stated that the area within a 20km radius from the plant shall be completely blocked. At first, even the original residents were not able to get permission to enter there, needless to say, nor animal rescue volunteers.
Pets and livestock depend on people who feed them. While people were not able to enter the no-go zone, countless pets and livestock lost their lives in miserable situation. This tragedy is not past but still present.
On April 22 in 2012, the first anniversary of the area blockage, or the day “the national government gave up on animals,” we will hold the memorial services in Fukushima and Tokyo. We pray for the lost lives and pledge to keep on helping the animals that are still struggling to live. We also invite people in Japan and around the world to share a moment of silence at 2:46pm for the animals.
Dear friends from around the world, who respect animals’ lives, regardless of your race, nationality or religion, let’s share the action on April 22.
Please join us for a moment of silence and prayer.
この決定は、かろうじて自分のペットや家畜の世話をしていた人々、与えられる餌によって生き延びた動物たち にはとりわけ非情で過酷なものでした。さしたる手助けもないまま、いのちを諦めろといわれたに等しいものだ ったからです。
