Caitlin Manner

Caitlin is a writer who spends her days caring for her three wild boys and three equally wild rescue mutts. In the past she was a foster mom for several Great Danes, and has had two three-legged dogs, so she has a particular fondness for house-horses and animals with special needs. She has a passion for rescuing and fostering all kinds of creatures, and hopes to someday run an official refuge. (If there could be exotic animals involved, that would be just great.)
When she’s not writing or attempting to manage the chaos that is her home, Caitlin enjoys just about all crafting hobbies, reading, and running at a fairly slow pace.

And while […]

The jaguar, the largest cat in the Americas, is a chunky boy with massive murder mittens, but even that wouldn’t stop us from wanting to give it a squeeze if we could.

Arctic Fox – The Magnificent Polar Carnivore

Overview The Arctic fox looks like someone took a Pomeranian and said, “Let’s cross it with a wolf and make it extra fluffy — to up the cuteness factor and make it impervious to extremely cold temperatures.” If they didn’t live in the far northern environments that are practically uninhabitable by humans, we’re pretty sure […]
