THIS JUST IN: Cute Cheetah Claws!

According to keepers, the cub purrs for his milk bottle, an unusual thing for cheetahs to do. Story, cute video here.

Well, There Goes My Morning…

Don’t Put Your Nuts All in One Basket

Squirellio says PPPPBBBBBFFFTTTHH! to good old fashioned advice.

What a shame. Because we also would like to inform him, that’s a catapult.

So that’s where the phrase “squirrel away” came from, Mia! Whee!
