more swirls plus

after checking out her bowl, padang savored her polka dot boxed (by lee) lunch! fishing cats, tigers and snow leopards all had enrichment toys of mini swirl balls or mini swirl candy bags (by kim). i made small sniff holes in the mini balls for added attraction of the food scent to encourage the fishing cats. ... pictured: padang, goldfish, sunfish, leanne, leanne, ming wah.

i made some enrichment toys for wishbone and pike in the wake of them losing their companions, our zoo friends andy and annie :( ... there's an extra bag for ulu in case she looks thru the mesh and thinks "hey how did she get a toy?" ;)

sukari's birthday bash

sukari's 8th birthday bash was a great success! placing sukari's birthday cake in front of her cave door was just the thing to intrigue her curiosity so much she couldn't resist! shy girl stuck her head in the doorway, just enough to grab her cake and bring it into the cave with her! after tunya had his ice cream cone (by kim) , they both disappeared thru the cave and were seen in the yard, each with half of the cake! happy birthday suki! ... pictured: cake and popsicle toys by lee, tunya, sukari, tunya, sukari.
