How The Otter Half Lives

Okay, this is just whimsy, but I love otters and this is a story and pic of one that was rescued. The pic is too cute.

The otters are my favourites at the Toronto Zoo. While I suppose I could get philosophical about zoos, which are mean in general, after reading The Life of Pi, I suppose I can be convinced that some creatures are okay in them.

Anyhoo. The very best time to visit the Toronto Zoo is in winter, which I guess I should have mentioned a few months ago. But it's very quiet, very cold and the animals are different. Some you don't see (obviously) but others are in their element. I don't like crowds, so the animals that come out in the cold, quiet times are my compatriots.

Oh, and we have otters at the cottage. But they're not handily contained and you have to be quick to see them. But, check out the pic. I want one.

Did your Dad never tell you, "Girls that want don't get."?

You have obviously never met my father. His advice was far more along the lines of "go get what you want and never look back..."

So soon there'll be a new friend for the cats to torment? Going to make the bathroom awfully crowded at times when Otto needs his swim time.
