With Sorrow....
I have to announce the passing of our beloved Canadian Lynx, Aslan, who had been given a home at Moonridge since 2006. He passed away last month after a 'brief illness'. But Aslan leaves us with an odd question: He's been examined on many occasions by the Vets at what is now the Big Bear Alpine Zoo and yet, only at his death was the lovely Aslan determined to be...a she.

We in the TS fandom loved her and she was always one of the most popular animals to be 'adopted'. I know I'll miss her terribly.


Each year, the zoo puts out a Christmas Wish List, so in honor of Aslan, I'm posting it here - under the cut - because I know she's watching over the zoo and would love it if some of these easy items found their way under the Big Bear Alpine Zoo's tree...
(the link leads to the address and phone # to find out how to send any of the wish list items)

Aslan was one of my adopted animals...

Incidentally, is Betsy Henke still the address to send Paypal donations to? It's not feasible for me to send anything other than cash!

Yeah, it seems as we've

known Aslan forever. :( It will not seem like an auction next year without 'her'. :(

Re: Lynx

PS: I hated that being back online coincided with the news about Aslan :(
