Now for some humor, non-fiction so I will post it here first. Think big cats…

First off this wasn’t funny the day it happened, but not many people can claim this happened to them.

ocelot-628109_1920 (2)It was a beautiful day and my husband and I decided to visit a friend who had a small zoo of a type within town limits so it wasn’t much. He had medium-sized wild cats called Ocelots and Margays. This picture is an Ocelot.

They were beautiful wild cats and he brought them out of the cage and tied them to a stake so we could pet them. I was a little scared of them so didn’t get too close. I petted them carefully.

Problem was I wasn’t close enough. The cat wanted attention and jumped up to put his paws on my body to stand up and I moved and he raked his claws down both legs. I was a bleeding mess.

I don’t blame the cat, as it was my fault for moving back before he finished his jump. Have you every been mauled by a jungle cat?

    My kingdom to have been mauled by a big cat! Sadly I have only ever been mauled by men and they aren’t nearly as attractive as big cats. Plus men know better, big cats are just acting on instinct.
    I paid five bucks just to get a pic of Spook with a big cat. She was more impressed with the camel ride. She’s a Philistine that way.
    On the plus side, it gave me the idea for the camelraffe. Diane and I really need to do a world tour with the camelraffe. Ya know, during the warm season. Neither of us like the cold. It makes out drinks freeze up!
