Bless The Beasts Two By Two, Pt 2
« on: August 16, 2011, 08:56:41 AM »
Hello Guests and Members - this new Topic is devoted entirely to helping animals survive.
We have another couple of Topics elsewhere, for animal lovers, personal photos stores videos, and also a humor pet video topic.
This particular Topic is where you post ideas and receive ideas on how to help animals survive the coming few years.

Anything you want to contribute regarding these concepts is welcomed:
     How to safeguard and provide for your pets, in the event of a sudden bugout to a
     survival location,
     Storing and hiding of animal food on your land
     How to help your domestic animals on your survival land -
             what kind of shelter, etc.
             how to safeguard hay, supplies, medicines for animals..
             Temporary large above ground enclosure or the group's pets while shelters
             are being built.
             Temporary large above ground enclosure or the group's domestic animals 
             while shelters are being built.

     Any ideas on how to gather up and help wild species on your survival land?
     Shelter for bees?
     Can anything be done for the birds?
     Any animal arks being set up - properly out front with a way to make donations ?
     Anyone here starting an animal ark?
     Ideas on any of this and more...

I will be moving a few posts here, mainly oldest to newest, from other animal Topics, those which are about different species... how valuable they are ... how they might be helped to survive.

Just a couple images for inspiration,

This one might not hold up to high winds, so it would need to be modified... secured down and fireproof... I am wondering if wild animals out on the range or even some birds would go in there if high winds started...
Ideas anyone?

Something which would possibly be good to purchase before things get too crazy: Books on natural pet care.
There will need to be ways to cook pet food and stock up and/or make pet medicines.
I do not know which books are best, please post here books you recommend for natural pet care.
Manual of Natural Veterinary Medicine: Science and Tradition (Paperback)

http://www.amazon.com/Manual-Natural-Veterinary-Medicine-Tradition/dp/0323013546

"P.S.- Some Additional Notes about keeping your Livestock, Farm, Crops & Land Safe from Fallout..."
http://www.radshelters4u.com/index3.htm#7
(Barns won't do it but there is a lot of useful info here and all through the site.)
This page has a lot and lots and lots of links and info about shelters, ARKS, community shelter ideas...emphasis on radiation.
This info could be tweaked to suit the needs of a PX crossover
situation. http://www.radshelters4u.com/index3.htm

Helping Wild Birds Through Winter
Protect Native Birds When the Temperature Drops Feb 13, 2008 S. Elliott

In freezing conditions, wild birds could use a hand finding fresh water and food, and with a little ingenuity and some planning, you won't even need to buy a feeder.
   
If you're a bird lover, one of the best things that you can do to help wild birds through a difficult winter is to provide a source of fresh water in freezing conditions. When temperatures plummet, it can be difficult for wild birds to find a source of water. If you keep a plastic sheet in your birdbath to help you remove frozen water and replace it regularly with fresh, the birds will find it.

The presence of birds in a winter landscape can be a refreshing precursor to spring, and you can help insure that they see spring by giving them a safe water source in tough times. If the idea of going out in punishing weather to change the water in your birdbath doesn't appeal to you, there are birdbath heaters available that will keep your birdbath water from freezing.

Birdbath Heaters
Birdbath heaters require very little energy, but the water they keep warm for the birds in your neighborhood can make a big difference. Birds that might otherwise be drinking water contaminated with antifreeze and other chemicals will find a safe haven. Your efforts will be rewarded by an abundance of birds in your yard this winter, as well as increases in your bird populations in the spring.

Winter Friendly Plants Birds Love
There are other measures you can take to give birds a break without investing in bird feeders or the inconvenience of keeping them stocked. The winter berry of the Washington hawthorne is a favorite and will attract and provide a meal for birds throughout the winter. Leaving the seed heads of plants in place in your flowerbeds will attract many grateful birds, too. Last season's sunflowers and purple coneflowers can provide a feast for hungry birds at no expense to you, as will bee balm, goldenrod, cosmos, asters, and tickweed.

Shrubs for Winter Seed and Fruit
Birds are also attracted to flowering and fruiting shrubs. Many shrubs retain their fruits into the fall and winter, making them a great spot for a quick snack. When laying out your garden landscape, include these bird friendly shrubs: common juniper, Japanese yew, and firethorn.

Spaceweather.com possible C or M solar flare geomagnetic storm warning

Wikipedia on geomagnetic storms affect on animals, just one excerpt:
Biology
There is a growing body of evidence that changes in the geomagnetic field affect biological systems. Studies indicate that physically stressed human biological systems may respond to fluctuations in the geomagnetic field. Interest and concern in this subject have led the International Union of Radio Science to create a new commission entitled Commission K - Electromagnetics in Biology and Medicine, current chair Dr. Frank Prato.

Possibly the most closely studied of the variable Sun's biological effects has been the degradation of homing pigeons' navigational abilities during geomagnetic storms. Pigeons and other migratory animals, such as dolphins and whales, have internal biological compasses composed of the mineral magnetite wrapped in bundles of nerve cells.[citation needed] This gives them the sense known as magnetoception. While this probably is not their primary method of navigation, there have been many pigeon race smashes, a term used when only a small percentage of birds return home from a release site. Because these losses have occurred during geomagnetic storms, pigeon handlers have learned to ask for geomagnetic alerts and warnings as an aid to scheduling races.

Hi barbara, I hope this video is ok to put here (bless the beasts)
Its a short video 8 mins about a group of 5 people on a small boat in the Sea of Cortez saving a young humpback whale from drowning as it was entangled in a lot of fishing nets and the 'freedom' and 'thankyou' display it put on after. So much better saving animals than killing them unlike the japanese whalers etc.

Animals' Spirits are actually closer to Creator that humans' spirits.    That is why they do not need language or speech.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/26/wounded-soldier-reunites-puppy-afghanistan_n_1234312.html

A wounded soldier and Purple Heart recipient who recently returned home from Afghanistan has now been reunited with a puppy he adopted while on the front lines thanks to the efforts of The Puppy Rescue Mission, a group that helps bring soldiers back together with their overseas pets, NBC Washington reports.
Donny Eslinger, 20, traded three cigarettes for the dog while on a tour in Afghanistan. He took care of the dog, whom he named "Smoke Pup Barbarian," until he was critically injured in a mortar attack.
Eslinger suffered from a broken leg, broken ribs, and other internal injuries in the blast.
Smoke Pup was left behind when Eslinger was flown out of Afghanistan to Germany and then back to the United States where he was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, according to NBC Washington.
That's when Eslinger's squad leader, Staff Sergeant Daniel, wrote to Puppy Rescue Mission. In the letter, Daniel described how he sent Esligner and three other wounded soldiers home while the unit was engaged in a "pretty intense fight with no visible enemy."
In the letter, Daniel described the special relationship Donny and other soldiers in his unit formed with Smoke Pup:

Smoke was the only bit of moral that made these kids forget were they were and cope with the tragedy we just experienced. It is amazing how therapeutic a little creature can be. Donny took care of that dog up until he was injured. Many of us in his Platoon would love nothing more than to see Smoke reunited with Donny. It would be the only decent thing we would see come from this place ... Donny will have a lot to deal with over the next year and Smoke could be a catalyst for recovery.
The Puppy Rescue Mission arranged for Smoke Pup to be flown to Florida and then the Bethesda, Maryland, where
Last October, President Obama awarded Eslinger a Purple Heart for his injuries sustained in the line of duty, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Don Eslinger Sr. told the Sentinel that his son has a long road to recovery and will undergo a number of surgeries to close the wound in his chest and to replace a portion of his skull that had to be removed due to swelling.
But he knows that if anything can help Eslinger during his difficult recovery, it's Smoke Pup.
"This dog Smoke will help him heal even faster. He's a strong kid and he's done remarkably well," Eslinger Sr. told
In tWESH News. Eslinger is still receiving treatment for his injuries."

In the link there is a very short video of when the dog lands on US soil and the soldiers family is there to meet him.
I especially liked what the Staff Sergeant said.

Thanks for sharing that Mel.  That is awesome.  Funny how we hear about every negative thing that happens over there from the MSM but rarely do we hear anything like this.  Thanks.

 :-[  Looking for answers.   I'm in LA proper.  Been here since Thursday.  We brought our dog along, as usual.  As of 2:00 pm PST today, he has started to climb walls.  We are in a Hotel suite with plenty of room.  He has been fine till today.  He is climbing into the tub, on us, pawing at the door and just showing signs of high anxiety.

Anybody aware of anything going on?  I don't usually check into this site when I'm away on work projects but I will continue to monitor for answers.

Thanks,
Mark
