New Jaguar Conservation Agreement Provides Protection for the Big Cat.
New Global Alliance with Panthera
Conservation programs that take into consideration the well-being and interests of the people that live with the big cats have the most chance of succeeding. In the past, there has been a conservation versus them approach and people were even removed from their homes as protected areas were off limits to local people. Projects that work with local people and give them an incentive to save the big cats have a much better chance of success. Here are three big cat conservation projects that help humans too.

Now that we are a multi-cat household, it is important to make sure each cat has their own space and pathways around the house. Annie, Eddie and Mercy all get along but they still need alone time. The creation of routes or corridors for your cats will help them feel more at ease in the home. If your cats are spatting you might check to see if you can create a more cat-friendly home to ease the tension.
I was recently having a chat with some friends about how we sometimes see big cats in the movies, or a magazine and at times they get the cats all wrong. For example, a person might say they love their cheetah print sweater but it is really a leopard print. I know this might not seem like a big deal but for big cat advocates, it makes us wince when we see or hear the cats thought of as interchangeable.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
After I displayed my first painting, A Cat Artist’s Interpretation of an Amur Tiger, that I created using my iPad and the Paint for Cats app by Hiccup, I could not believe the outpouring of support for my art.
I truly appreciate your kind words so I thought I would try to paint some more of the things that inspire me. This required a lot of thinking time and play time with my TipsyNip Tickle Pickle.
It took me quite some time to find the right color combinations to convey my interpretation of what inspired me and to then get the paint on the canvas. I sure hope you like my paintings too.

Happy Tiger Imitation Tuesday. This imitation of mine proved quite difficult for most of you. I am taking the opportunity to show you my Tiger Teeth Imitation so you can try again. I know, I wish I could help you out a little more because our teeth look exactly the same, don’t they? And our chins, and whiskers, and even our stained pink noses, same, same, same. ~sigh~ Do your best and take your time. I have placed a subtle hint to help those of you that are feeling hopeless.
Many Friends have asked me about their own Cat’s teeth. I want to refer you to our good Friends at Paws and Effect. There you will find an interesting article “Why does my cat’s breath smell like fish? Great information for your parents to know about keeping our teeth in working order. As you know chomping chow is one of my favorite things to do, so keeping my teeth healthy is important.
My breath doesn’t smell like fish because I don’t get to eat fish ever because of my allergies.
Alright, now try and decide which is me, Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger.
Am I on the left or the right?
And if you smell something fishy, check out Paws and Effect’s post for some fresh breath tips. If you smell something fishy because you have found a dead fish wrapped in a newspaper in your bed, well I don’t know if I can help you. You might need to ask for assistance from one of our big cat cousins, I am thinking Jaguar.
Thank you everyone. Meow for Now!
Happy Monday Friends. This rainy morning, I am practicing my Jaguar in the Jungle impression. Don’t feel badly if you can’t see me, we Jaguars are elusive, blending well into our surroundings. If I could only reach that vine before I get caught. What are you trying to get away with…I mean accomplish today?
