A BIG Kitty Cooling Off

Lynettea took this picture of the TIGER cooling off at Adelaide Zoo during the heatwave last week. She had never seen the TIGER going into the water before, but it was a very hot day.
If you click on the picture it will biggify and look more terrifying. If you are a human, that is. Perhaps you kitty visitors will need to supervise your humans if they look at these photos, just in case they get frightened. TIGERS don't frighten me. I would just hiss or run inside and get under the bed. Taking a few precautions is always sensible.
In the second picture the TIGER is leaving the water. The tiger has a big enclosure like a jungle and a diving pool with special heated rocks. The water flows over a waterfall into a big moat.
It is a bit cooler here now and more refreshing.
I don't like heat waves!

Please purr a lot for all the people in Victoria affected by the bushfires.
Purrrrr! Purrrrr! Purrrrr! Purrrrr!

Wow, what a beautiful tiger. It's so neat to see it in the water.

Hi... we are praying that all will stay safe and sound...

Also, our email to you came back to us; we wanted to let you know that Diamond will be part of our High Five Sunday, on February 15.

Thanks, Maggy & Zoey, Zoolatry

WE are SAFE. I am keeping an eye on Lynettea as she goes out of the house. I don't think she is going anywhere near fires, as she doesn't smell smoky when she gets back.
Thank you Zoolatry for having us to your place. I don't know why you couldn't get through on our email. We don't know everything, but a lot of spam people have been sending us messages we don't want.

It would have to be very, very hot to get me into the water. FAZ
