I'm told the internets love cute baby animals. And why not? They are fun to look at and harmless, like a socially acceptable form of porn, minus the orgasm (right?). OK, well I found out there was a cute baby animal farm near me (Ranier, Oregon), so I took the girlfriend and we got our snorgling on. Here's a link to the actual place, the Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center
. Do not be alarmed by that url, I assure you it is wholesome family fun. On to the cute!
|He was always interested in 'over there,' even when it was a moth|
Here we have a Siberian Lynx kitteh. You can tell he's Siberian and not a Canadian Lynx because his breath smells like vodka and he's amazing at ice dancing. He and I made fast friends. It wasn't 10 minutes before he was just in a knot of paws in my lap.
Next up was a Malaysian Fishing Cat. The smallest of the bunch. Tell jokes about her prime minister at your own peril. She's got one look and it's 'cute steel'.
|She had a bit of an otter vibe about her.|
This bearcat is called a binturong. Apparently this guy and the Malaysian Fishing cat are good buddies. She's probably attracted to his natural perfume of Fritos (seriously, he smells like corn chips and it's totally natural).
|"Why is that lady opening a jar of salsa?"|
The main attraction was the pair of Snow Leopards. These two were all over the place. One of them got out of the pen and gave the wandering chickens a hell of a scare. Also, the little dude tried to maul me, but he's not quite there yet.
|Show me a cuter mauling. I dare double kitty dare you.|
|I must have annoyed her, she was hitting the bottle early and often.|
The last stop was the wolf den. These guys were a bit bigger. Apparently, they're growing by leaps every day. Wake up in the morning, oh, the wolves are a foot taller than yesterday. Not quite as cute (I'm more of a cat person) and twice as aggressive, but fun nonetheless. They like to nip at faces and there are three of them (two timberwolves and an arctic), so I got some reflex testing. Also, wrestling and hugging.
|Sometimes they even do what you ask. For food, of course.|
Huge thanks to the whole crew at ZWCC! I'll have to stop by again for the sloths....
|See ya later, you big oaf of a monkey.|
