Thanks sweetie. :D This started out looking so different. I cropped it and made it black and white instead, I think I made some good choices. :) I love to watch all sorts of creatures sleep. My cat at home is the funniest. She sleeps with her eyes open and looks like she is possessed or something when she starts twitching.

Omg you got a shot of an ocelot! Where did you go to get this shot, I'm really curious! Thats my favorite animal but no zoos I've heard of have them since there are so few. I love that you put this up, not just since it's a cat or ocelot but it's a beautiful shot of it. Thank you for sharing!! :hug:

I am lucky enough to have them at my local zoo. This was shot through glass. I do have some more of the ocelot up in my gallery. :)

Oh that's awesome! You are so lucky to have them there. Are you from Texas or Florida? Not being a creeper haha just wondered how they would make the proper environment for the ocelots out of Texas or Florida. I'll be sure to check the shots out I'm excited for them!

Neither place, but I have friends from both places. Having had stalkers in the past I am reluctant to give out exactly where I am. I hope you understand. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I am still under the weather.

Hahaha well I understand that I've had them too >.< But your answer was enough lol. You must have some really amazing zoos that can house such beautiful animals. I'm very envious! I'm hoping this summer I can find a zoo that can offer the opportunities you've had as well with your photography.
I hope you're feeling better or at least will feel better. I hate getting sick and know how I relax a great deal when I do so I understand. Get well soon

Thanks for understanding. I am lucky that I can enjoy the animals at the zoo anytime I want. I look at it as therapy for my body and soul. It encourages me to walk and interact with my environment. How much more can you ask for? I am finally feeling better and almost caught up with all of my messages. It has taken a while but I am glad I am back. :D

How are you doing?

Yea no problem. You are lucky, I wish I could have that privelege but sadly I live in the middle of no where haha. I'll move someday to an area where I can view such amazing animals though. I'm glad you're feeling better. Thats the last thing anyone wants is to be sick.
I'm alright, a bit bored but you'll have that. Thanks for asking

Puppies are like that, I am glad you have another small life to share in yours. Did you know they make special seat belts for dogs now? Pretty cool.

she is a hand full.. I saw them and though about it but if they go anywhere they ride in the back of the jeep with a lot of padding and toys.. both Noah and Hannah have crossed the country several times now in the jeep so they are use to it but hte puppy I am not sure how she is going to do...

That is part of the fun not knowing. It is good your other furbabies are okay in cars, maybe they will help the youngest one when it is time. :D

I hope so.. she is such a hand full.. even going to the vets is a journey..

I can imagine. I have taken lots of cats and dogs to the vet in cardboard boxes, letting them roam and holding them. I think my favorite way is probably the carriers that way I don't have to worry about stepping on them when I do the break or whatever. lol.
