Devorah Dolphin Goes on Vacation

Devorah Dolphin accompanied her human companion Louise, of Silly Dolphin Jewelry, to a craft fair in Florence, Oregon last weekend. The Feltie World News was given an exclusive glimpse into the duo's photo travelogue.

Devorah chills to the White Stripes while Louise prepares for their trip.


Devorah visits fellow fair-goers and checks out the art displays.


Daring Devorah politely nibbles a Space Bunny from www.practicalrabbit.com; no word on whether Devorah experienced any retaliation.


Devorah checked out the other booths, endeared herself to everyone she met (except perhaps the Space Bunny), and was so tired that she ended the day by getting lots of cetacean beauty sleep.

Owl Couple Renews Vows In Frenetic Soiree


The Feltie Forest was alive with much noise and merriment as Eglantine and Gervey Owl celebrated fifty years of marriage. It was the most elaborate vow renewal ceremony Feltoria has ever seen, including dancing bears, juggling monkey acrobats, karaoke, and giraffe slides for the young ones. The food was catered by the Wayfaring Stork Fine Dining Establishment, and drinks were provided by Albert's Ale House.

After years of searching for someone to build a nest with, Eglantine met Gervey while attending a singles' potluck, and it was love at first whoo. In honor of their love for one another, the couple have dedicated their lives to simplifying other birds' search for partnership. Just five years after meeting, Eglantine and Gervey co-founded the Inter-Migratory Mating Service, which is in operation to this day. The lovebirds have helped find mates for five thousand lonely fowl.

When asked what their secret to a long, successful relationship is, Eglantine and Gervey prescribe a healthy dose of kindness and respect for each others' opinions. "We try to work through our problems honestly and quickly," says Eglantine. "We never go to bed with our feathers ruffled." And of course, adds Gervey, "Cuddle often."

The couple's children, Harz, Tid, and Mildy, capped the festivities by presenting their parents with tickets for an exotic cruise to the islands of Woolania. Bon voyage, Eglantine and Gervey!

Patches Dog Adopted: Looks Forward To Chasing Tail Around Big Apple

Patches Dog recently boarded a plane for his new home in New York state. Born on the West Coast, Patches has never traveled more than a mile from his birthplace, and is eagerly awaiting his big adventure on the East Coast.

Patches has heard many delicious tales of fragrant dumpsters replete with the week-old remnants of deep-dish pizza, New York-style bagels, and Coney Island hotdogs. He's also looking forward to playing frisbee in Central Park with his new human family.

Having traveled extensively throughout New York state myself, I know there will be plenty of activity to keep Patches' adventurous personality happily occupied. Tally-ho, my friend. Tally-ho.

Carlotta Elephant In Recovery

Carlotta Elephant has successfully undergone reconstructive surgery after a violent attack by a predatory canine. Carlotta suffered a complete dismemberment shortly after arriving at her new human home, and is now expected to make a full recovery.

It took one Feltie Surgeon over two hours to stuff Carlotta's fluff back into place. She is now in treatment for Post-Traumatic Wool Disorder, but while she may have some way to go before she can put her ordeal behind her, Carlotta faces her future with a positive outlook. Or, as she puts it, "At least all of my limbs are once again at home on my torso."

Carlotta is experiencing some trepidation at re-entering the home where the attack took place, although certain precautions are being taken for her safety.

This editor would like to wish Carlotta all the luck in the world as she attempts to regain her peace of mind, and encourages all Felties and their human friends to report violent attacks on Felties to www.elielfionn.com, where you can schedule an emergency appointment in the Feltie Trauma Ward at Feltie Infirmary.

Humans Deny Felties Exist

In a bizarre turn of events, local Felties were informed that according to many human beings, they not only have no feelings, but do not truly exist.

“It’s downright sad,” said the mayor of Feltie Forest, Harley Roadhopper. “We create them out of the goodness of our hearts, and they turn around and pretend we aren’t real. Talk about ungrateful!”

“I think it’s disgraceful,” commented Justine the sheep। "This will mean even less respect for Feltie Folk all over the world. I mean, we know humans need help, but for Feltie’s sake, aren’t they confused about their own importance!”

As Agata Plopple wisely commented, “Thank goodness our existence is not dependent on their idea of reality.”

The mayor has called a town meeting to discuss this improbable problem. He is encouraging all concerned Feltie citizens to attend, particularly those who have a lot of experience traveling throughout the human world.
