Jaguar vs Caiman

In Big Cat, Little Kitty, a "young crocodile" is shown as potential prey for a black jaguar. Notice that this is a young crocodile.

No, a jaguar would probably not take on an adult croc! However, I did find this amazing video of a jaguar stalking and bringing down a caiman.

Lynx Duet

In Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, T.S. Eliot wrote:

"Jellicle Cats are merry and bright
And pleasant to hear when they caterwaul."

If you've ever heard a cat "caterwaul," you might argue with his choice of the word "pleasant." But just wait until you hear this lynx duet!

Show of Giant Cats in Kyiv?

When I saw this headline, I was stunned. Could there possibly be people bringing 200 lions, tigers, leopards, and jaguars to some place called Kyiv's Ukrainian House?!?!?!

Well, no. As it turns out, the term "giant cats" refers to "mainly Maine Coon, Persian and British Shorthair breeds from Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Poland, Belarus and Romania." Phew! That's a relief!

These very large domestic breeds are remarkable to see and fun to watch. Read more about this cat show and find out which cat won the "biggest cat" prize at this link:

Big Cats in a Box

You may remember "_Sofie is the Cat in the Box_" from our last episode... er... my last post.

As it turns out, the folks at Big Cat Rescue did "the box thing" with a few felines of considerably larger size than Sofie, with amusing results! Just press "play"!

(Sofie made me do it!)
