      They look & behave very much like house cats, don’t they? Sweet faces, soft fur, and curious as a…well, kitten. But you’re right: probably best not to pet them! 🙂

    Gorgeous pictures, Melodye! I love the way tigers move (although I would never ever want to be alone in a room with one!)

  2. The feline’s coat, although soft to the touch and easy on our eyes, looks best on the cat. Beautiful animals. Thanks for sharing this with us.

      Carole, thanks so much for stopping by! I agree with you 100%. The coats are magnificently suited to their owners’s forms and physicality. To wear what isn’t ours is to do ourselves AND these beautiful coats an injustice.

      Thanks, Stace. I think you’d love this place. Maybe a field trip in June?

      I like my new website, too. So pretty, I wanna pet it. 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh those are beautiful, and, even though I hate to see them (anything) in captivity, I bet they have lovely lives. How fortunate are we to see such gorgeous cats up close and personal? One of my favourite places is the Cotswold Wildlife Park, close to us in Oxfordshire. They have a few big cats in very large, very green and wonderful habitats. They also do things like make the cheetahs chase their meat on a fast zip line. So good for the cats to run. I love visiting there. 😀

      They are rescue cats, for the most part, so they lead much better lives than they would have, given their past circumstances. That makes me happy, same as with the ECBC’s devotion to preserving the lineage of endangered breeds.

      I’d love to see those cheetas! So sleek, and so elusive.
