Tibor the Sumatran Tiger at Edinburgh zoo.

Tibor sadly has recently had to have his injured right eye removed. He had lost all sight in it and had developed an infection, and so the vet thought it best to remove it. He still has good sight in his remaining eye and is expected to make a full recovery =)

Tibor a week after his operation in July 2010:

Funny how such a majestic creature can look downright cute and amusing when seen in just the riht moment. Sad to read of the fate of his eye - tigers are sight-oriented predators, as I recall - but at least he'll recover.

reminds me of my cat Garfeild who's a ginger tabby. and no he's not fat, i just named him because (i forgot the reason why i named him that.) mainly he reminded me of the comic cat. besides i wanted to name him that because i wanted to.

we also ccall him a walrus because of his long whiskers. his full name is garfield peranimus richard parker jullius the orange. i dont know how to spell most of those names, since me and my parents both took turns on naming him. i picked garfield.
