Zoo Fun with Jen & Martin

My dear friends Martin and Jen traveled all the way from New England to visit with me and enjoy a trip to the National Zoo. My favorite part of the zoo is currently the baby tigers. I'm not sure whether it's Sukacita or Bandar (those are the tiger cubs' names) in the picture with Damai, their mom, but they were both still super cute, frisky and fun.
Before we left for the big zoo we spent some time in my personal zoo (my home) and Moose the cat basked in Jen and Martin's attention. Moose let Jen hold her body and Martin hold her head (she likes that, even if it does look weird). Feral born Baby cat let them look at her in her sleeping basket, which is more than a lot of visitors get (she mostly hides under the bed).
The Andean bear cubs were enjoying the sun when we walked up to their exhibit but seconds later their keeper rang the dinner bell and they ran off to eat.
We toured the invertebrate house and even viewed a lobster feeding (I took a video; if anyone's interested let me know and I'll upload it to YouTube and share the link on my blog).
Then we enjoyed the small mammal house. I spent far more time talking with my friends than taking pictures but still wanted to share a taste of the zoo. I hope you enjoyed it!

Thank you to Martin and Jen for allowing me to use their photo on my blog and, most especially, for the gift of their time and friendship! May God bless them and may He bless you too!
