Pensive in their post-breakfast stupor this morning, Tiny and Baby forget to hiss and spit at each other for getting too close, allowing this rare shot of the baby lion lying down with the lambie-pie.
Digestion accomplished, Baby ventures forth, demonstrating two fascinating feline facts: 1. They hate to get their feet wet (note body language of planning the next move in photo above).
2. They are able to walk in pre-existing footprints in the snow -- in this case, the "footprints" were made by raindrops when the precipitation turned from snow to rain yesterday -- presumably using vision to place their forepaws and then motor memory to place their backpaws in the very same footprints.
For more fascinating feline facts, be sure to visit the the 96th Carnival of the cats, hosted this week by Meryl Yourish's feline familiars, Tig and Gracie.
