When we finally got a flat screen I put the old tube tv out on the curb.
Next morning there were two more with it. I kid you not.
Drove around the neighborhood, found somebody else with a tv, dumped all three by his curb when nobody was around.
I don't know about NYC but here in Delaware rabies is endemic and any
one bitten by a wild animal or stray dog or cat is advised to tell the
authorities. They will capture the animal and examine it but if the
animal cannot be found the bitten person is advised to get the rabies
vaccine. Happened to one of my wife's friends living in Pittsburgh who
got scratched or bitten by a bat.
A few years ago, a nearby nature center had a caged raccoon found to be
rabid and people there had to be vaccinated. Several people in a local
development were bitten by a rabid fox and also got vaccinated.
Your cats should be vaccinated, particularly if you let them run outside.
There are possums in NYC? I grew up around Troy and they were just something
you read about or might see in a zoo. Well, there's everything else in the
city, might as well have possums too. Are the armadillos there yet?
Growing up here in central Ontario we never saw 'possum, but
apparently they hitch-hiked up on trucks crossing the border - they
hang on with their 4 paws and their prehensile tails - more with the
tails in fact- and drop off on the road.
They don't over-winter well so they have not become terribly numerous
-commonest place to find them is dead on the road just down-road from
My brother has prodded quite a few off the undercarriage of his semi
over the years. (used to do a lot of transcontinental runs - texas,
georgia, Florida, Cali, etc to all over Canada.
afaik I never gave one a ride. Looking for possums wasn't part of my daily
equipment checks though. THe big thing when I was driving was fire ants. I
you came out of Georgia they'd stop you at the port of entry, open the
trailer doors, and look for ants. The theory was the ants would congregate
at the doors for fresh air. That sounded lame to me. 53' of carpet stuffed
in up to the roof is a lot of area for ants to hide.
I stayed in Flushing the last time I was in NY.
At the Y.
And 35 years ago, two of my neighbors in the building in Brooklyn moved
to a retirement home in Flushing. It might have had a religious
affiliation. They were both old and I thought they were just roommates,
but it turned out that one of them was the nurse for the other, and
probably younger, but they both grew older together.
