We Had A Meerkat Monday In 2011

Three years ago? It’s time for another one.

Fellow Earthlings Wildlife Center near Palm Springs, California cares for Meerkats with nowhere else to go. They take in Meerkats and give them a sweet home to live out their Happy Meerkat Lives!

The only reason they have toys and are interacting with people is these guys were born in captivity–so they can’t be released into the wild. And they do NOT make good pets. This is a private facility- not open to the public- but if you “adopt a meerkat” you can set up a visit where you’ll help serve lunch. Mmmmmm, anyone for seconds?

Getting down to the bottom of it all.

Worms inside a ball. That’s pretty much as good as it gets here.

Play, dig, snack, nap. Play, dig, snack, nap. It’s just how they roll.

Photos and lots of quality info from KB.
