Kat Eschner's weekly newsletter about animal-human relationships

Greetings, fellow hominids! I normally take a single week off following the final issue of a CREATURE FEATURE volume (there are 12 issues in each, and you may have noticed that the newsletter changes a bit in between each volume.) I’ll be starting vol. 4 with next week’s issue—need a little extra time to prepare and to catch up on my other work.

For now, please enjoy these links to other people’s frankly *amazing* work and to my own efforts in the name of science journalism.

My favorite meme, whose original author is lost to the internet. Don’t spray owlets unless you’re a trained professional and for the love of god don’t keep owls as pets.


Stuff other people wrote (most in October):


Writing this newsletter, while often the best part of my week, is shockingly time-consuming! If you want to support my efforts to explore how we live and die with this planet’s other sentient beings, please consider sharing this newsletter on your social media feeds, buying me a coffee or even becoming a paying subscriber ($5USD/month, $50USD/year).
