Last Lion or Tiniest Tiger?

Snarling cats  Lion from Last Lions and Gracey

I have been thinking about the film The Last Lions, An Incredible True Story of Survival from National Geographic Entertainment ever since I watched it for the first time. I was so moved by the film that I wrote a review here on our Conservation Cub Club.  The film was made by  Dereck and Beverly Joubert, award-winning filmmakers from Botswana, Africa.  The Jouberts  have been National Geographic explorers-in-residence for over four years.  Their body of work has produced five Emmy’s, a Peabody, the World Ecology Award, and induction into the American Academy of Achievement.

I just can’t seem to get the film out of my mind.  I was swept away from the opening scene and followed Ma di Tau’s struggle to survive throughout the film.  A great documentary film with  a message should leave the viewer thinking and I have been thinking about the lions in Africa ever since. Have you seen The Last Lions yet?

Shocking Photo from The Tiniest Tiger’s Habitat


The following picture is not for the  faint of heart. If you scare easy or are prone to night terrors, you might want to look away before it is too late.

As hard as this is to believe, this is an actual photo of what happened in my habitat this very day!


An Empty Dish! No Chow to Chomp! Not even a Morsel!

Don’t worry, everything is back to normal now with a full dish and clean rugs to stand on while chomping. ~phew~

First snow of winter at my habitat

Santa Gracey

First snow of winter at my habitat. I am trying to get my mom to light the fireplace so I can cat nap, I mean think, on the ottoman beside the fire. But for now, I am watching the squirrels playing in the backyard. What are you working on today?
