Our original plans for yesterday were to head for San Francisco so that I could get a really good training walk done there, but I was coming off a week of zero activity thanks to a bee sting, and had really just started to feel even remotely human, so we went to six Flags instead.

There I could walk, and there are tons of places to sit down if needed, and if it came to it, we could just head home.

This is one of the reasons I really like going there.

Tigers.

Better yet, tigers that aren't forced into performing tricks. They are encouraged to exhibit natural behaviors, but if they don't want to...sucks to be the trainer standing there with meat in his hand, asking the tiger to come and get it.

This one...she made a point of ignoring him at first. She'd had a few chunks of meat, and that water looked cold. She made him beg for it practically, before she decided she'd do him a favor and go for a swim.

I seriously, seriously love watching these guys.

Totally know what my next tattoo will be ;)

They would be fun to watch! We do not have Tigers at our Six Flags

And where will the tiger tattoo be? Cause you know I want to know if I should ask Max to make you show it to us, but well there are things that as a cat I really DON'T want to see, if you know what I mean.

It will be in an area of proper display ;)

I'm thinking my right calf...go big on this one. Multiple sessions of inky pain...

I love cats of all sizes. The big ones are truly amazing.
