Mai the Malayan Tiger

To celebrate our anniversary last week, we went to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium. My favorite animal there by far was Mai, a Malayan Tiger in the Cat Complex. Besides just being a gorgeous big cat, Mai was special because she was missing one of her front legs. She got around just fine, though. I hope I get to go back and see her some day.

Cat Quotables-Calico Cats and Weather

If the tail of a sleeping calico cat is turned to the north or east, a storm is approaching. If it is turned to the south or the west, fair weather is ahead.
