Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails


I Spy with my Little Eye, Something beginning with O

This is a very easy O – but extra points and a cuddle from the Cheetahs if you know what sort of O it is…

and the answer isn’t ‘hungry’…

See It, Snap It, Love It – Animals

Animals are just a perfect theme for me.  I have hundreds of photos from the zoo and took a load more on Sunday ready for this and then the memory card snapped and all those pictures are lost *sobs*.  You’ll have to wait a little longer for the picture of the baby giraffe, the lynx kittens and an update on the cheetah cubs, instead I bring you the oriental short clawed otters.  I took these in August and they were squeaking for people to come and pay them some attention…

The otter with the stone is called Flash – he loves his stones.  Very much.  He will choose one and then carry it round, limping with it in one paw for the sympathy, he hugs it, he juggles it, he balances it, he puts it on his friends backs and then gets it back…

So instead of a single picture, here’s a little slideshow – I give you Flash… and his stone.

See It, Snap It, Love It – Colour

Lucy at Dear Beautiful Boy managed to set us the lovely theme of Colour before delivering a very gorgeous bundle of a baby on Friday – so welcome to the world little one and well done Lucy!  Here’s my colour photo for the week – a colour that I suspect her little one will become rather fond of at some point – and a flower that will hopefully be in bloom on her birthday each year…



Saturday Is Caption Day – Another Seagull One

So there’s a choice here – what’s the boy thinking or, with possibly more captioning material available, what’s the seagull planning?


Now go and find out what else needs captioning over with Mammasaurus – no doubt there’ll be some erm… classics..
