You asked, you got it. Scroll down for a Q & A section in the sidebar. To be continued...
How did you know that Charlie was only 10 days old when you found him?(I am so in love with Charlie... thank you for this blog.)-- Dana
Are you afraid Charlie will eat your cat?No.Personally, I'd have been more worried about the cat eating Charlie when he was younger ;)
I am wondering has Fish & Game ever gotten in touch with you?? It is illegal to keep wild animals as pets, and although you say he is not a pet, he seems to be to me.
I was wondering what you do with Charlie and Eli if you have to leave for an extended time (for more than a day or two.)
Yippee! Thanks for doing Q & A!!
what do the local think about you having Charlie? Are they supportive ? Will you be posting more videos with charlie that would be great to see his personality and interaction live! thanks Marlene from Cambria
Ooh, boy! Q & A! ... oh, now I have to come up with intelligent sounding questions...What do you think will happen when Charlie comes of mating age? What do coyotes in the wild do for shelter? Do you worry that if Charlie were to ever leave you, whether he will have proper survival skills?How old is Eli by the way?Have you ever noticed if Charlie's behavior changes with the seasons?Well, maybe not that intelligent sounding.Oh, where does Charlie's elk come from?
What does Charlie smell like? Has his smell changed since his early puppyhood?
Hi just subscribed to your daily blog. Read the article in the LA Times and looking forward to the updates. I wanted to purchase the calendar & see can use Paypal but don't you need an address to be able to send it to us. I don't see any place for it. Happy Holidays to you & Charley & the cat.
What a facinating story! I look forward to my daily fix of viewing your blog...Charlie is beautiful! Your amazing photos and stories are a nice way to start my day! Merry Christmas from Montana!
Did Charlie have any siblings that you know of?
Regarding the Fish & Game question. Y'know what? There are some laws that just need to be treated as guidelines, not commandments engraved in stone. Obviously it would not be right for people to go out hunting wild animals just to steal their young to make into pets. But when a baby of any species needs help, no one can tell me it's better to just kill it than to raise it with all the love and care you can, regardless whether it eventually remains at home or returns to the wild. What you are doing - what many of us are doing - is a blessing, and, IMHO, not subject to the whims of political appointees with more power than brains.Whew! Can you tell I've had my share of run-ins with the Game Commission (in another state)? OK, off the soap-box.Wishing you Shreve, Charlie, Eli and all my fellow Charlie fans a wonderful holiday full of peace and love.Lilli
I'm so happy to see the new Q&A section ... thanks for taking even more time to respond to us!
BRAVO "lilli k"!! Well said...Thanks for the Q&A section Shreve! It's really great. I can only imagine how many emails you get in a day!! God's continued Blessings and Peace to you, Charlie and Eli for many more wonderful years together.MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!Stacey in wintery Sask Canada :o)
Are you writing a book about Charlie? If not, please consider it. I'd buy copies for all my animal loving friends. I have no doubt it would be a great success!
Anyone who owns livestock & loves their animals, like I do, hates coyotes. That said, I'm enchanted with your blog and applaud your efforts with Charlie. I love the way you respect him for what he is-- a wild animal. I think you are doing a wonderful, respectful, important thing with Charlie.As far as the critics, I think those folks know little of animals and rural living. I would save my disdain for people who would take an animal like Charlie and use him to sire half-coyote pups. And then sell them. Obviously you would never do that.
My family owns livestock, and we certainly love our animals (which range from longhorn steers to Black Angus bulls to mother cows with calves to Quarter Horses to Shetland ponies to mules and donkeys)but that doesn't predispose us to hate any other animals, including coyotes. How can you love one creature and hate another?We hear coyotes barking and howling from my parents' house most of the year, and I applaud their ability to claim their place in nature. Same for the grey and red foxes we spot on occasion. Now, I'm intimidated by the cougars that we're beginning to spot in our part of Texas. I certainly don't want to cross the path of one of them. And alligators scare me silly. But . . . hate them? No way. They have just as much right to be here as my horse and I do.
Hi! I found your blog a few weeks ago, via Cuteoverload.com. As someone who has worked with a lot of animal shelters and fostered many domestic pets, I wanted to thank you for saving Charlie's life and for documenting it so beautifully for the rest of us to see. Kudos to you! IMHO, one of the best places in the world to see coyotes in capativity is the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, in Tucson, Az. http://www.desertmuseum.org/kids/oz/long-fact-sheets/coyote.htm
I live in the California foothills on a small ranch I've named Coyote Oak. One of my greatest pleasures is listening to the beautiful, always eerie, calls of the coyotes. Their mating season starts soon and I always send out a thought that they all remain safe from the humans who don't appreciate them as we do. My warmest wishes to you and Charley and the brave Eli.
Shreve, where do you keep Charlie when you're on your vespa voyages? Your other blog makes it sound like you're still travelling, but what happens to Charlie?
Wondering if you've considered giving Charlie any vaccinations particularly Distemper? It's my understanding that Coyotes can get similar diseases as dogs.
How far removed is living with Charlie than living with a dog? Can coyotes be domesticated? I would be afraid of a pack of dogs as well as a pack of coyotes..Thanks,Nichole
