It's worth the cheesy music for the sounds of kitty glee.

Turkey hucking is a pretty cool job description.

My cats growing up LOVED to eat the heads off their prey first and sometimes the head was all they ate. I wonder if these big cats are wondering where their tasty, crunchy skull encrusted brain treats are.

"Get your camera away from my NOMS" was something of a theme there.

Also, so not arguing with any tiger named Shere Khan.

I wrote these guys a letter suggesting they use something more sporting than turkey's like a yorkie or people. One of my readers sent me this and this. Basically weird stories of tax fraud and accusations of murder. I make no claims as got the truth of any of this. Judge the linked material on your own. Apparently People magazine did a story on the "too purrfect couple," but I can't find that link right now.

Daaaaaw, big kitties. What was with the the carrots and other veggies at the start? Cats are strictly carnivorous, no molars. Don't tell my old kitty that though, she was hummus fanatic of the first water.

I felt bad for TJ at first, then I realized his turkey had been intentionally put in that tree.
Note to self: Review and revise tiger escape plan.

That's what Thanksgiving looks like at my house too. Complete with the cat eating something novel, puking it up and eating it again.

Dessert and football! (No turkey coma here).

Also: Halloween with music by Kevin Mcleod. And again.

Grace is my easy fave, a) because she totally failed to make it onto the table the first time and b) SO KYOOT.

Yes, Grace is somewhat gracially-challenged.

I live right near this place. And I keep telling myself that I need to go check it out.
It looks amazing. Maybe next weekend...

What is it that makes them look so snuggly when I know darn well they'd bite my head right off?

Fascinating and beautiful. All the big cats, really.

The pumpkin video at the end is a new one. (Previously linked, the old one.)

Most of these species are rare and endangered in the wild, and regulations concerning the keeping of exotic wildlife in captivity in the US are woefully weak or completely lacking. It would be nice if some of the money people paid to see these critters in zoos went to conservation efforts so that zoos will not become the only places they exist. On a brighter note, a jaguar was recently spotted (joke unintended) in Arizona.

Anytime I think of BCR I can't help but think of this - where is Don Lewis?

Thief! The Whelk is a thief!

Oh, okay, I forgive him, this time.

Big cats are already just about my favorite thing. After a few beers and a couple glasses of scotch, they are the #1 best thing ever invented on the planet.

I'm a little disappointed they weren't given live turkeys....

NOM!

Hey, looks like a typical thanksgiving dinner at my house!

A turkey can fly if you hurl it.

No turkey hurling necessary.

Even tigers know you should brine turkeys before eating.

Dear Internet: These are the cats that I would like you to be made out of going forward.
