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.

Saturday Is Caption Day – The Elephant One

These two gorgeous elephants are Donna (on the left) and Scott (on the right).  Nearly a year old now, Scott is a little dude and loves playing with the other elephants (whether they like it or not!).

So Donna is clearly digging for buried treasure whilst Scott is just waiting for your captioning skills!


And now pop over to the lovely Mammasaurus and see what little gems need your attention this week.


I Spy with my Little Eye, Something beginning with E

I Spy with my little eye a big cutie beginning with E! (although she’s called Donna…)

Now clambour over to the lovely jbmumofone to see who else is spying something beginning with C.
