Explaining the Card

I got a few questions about our card--if it is PhotoShopped. Nope, it's all real.

We went to the Natural Bridge Zoo in early September, and they had 2 tiger cubs, both female. One was a rare white tiger; the other an extremely rare "Golden Tabby". As you see, we had our picture taken with the white tiger.

The baby tigers are pampered during this time, so they love to get their pictures taken. The white tiger cub was eager to jump in our laps to get the bottle. She put her paw on Frank's hand, and it wasn't much smaller. She wasn't very soft, which surprised me. Her fur was kind of wiry. It was quite an experience that lasted about 30 seconds!

The site now only mentions the white tiger. I wonder what happened to the Golden Tabby cub. Since the Golden Tabby was so rare, I wouldn't be surprised if they sold it to a larger zoo or something like that.

I need to bug Frank to post his movies of the tigers getting baths. They complained less than Sydney does when she gets a bath.

Where Does the Cat Go?

Using GPS to Monitor Your Cat Slideshow/Video

The video is a little long, but it appealed to my geeky side, which rarely shows itself.
