Weekend Cat Blogging: Tiger!

For this Weekend Cat Blogging, we present a particularly magnificent cat:

This is a Malayan tiger, though as one may be able to tell from the vegetation it is not in its native Malaysia, but rather is at the Bronx Zoo in New York.

It is hard to watch one of these tigers and not immediately see the similarities to the domestic cats that share our homes:

Like many other tiger species, the Malayan tiger is very endangered, with possibly only a few hundred left in the wild. The Bronx Zoo has a breeding program and recently saw the arrival of three cubs, though I did not get a chance to see them personally.

Weekend Cat Blogging #286 is hosted by Othello at PaulChens FoodBlog?!

The Carnival of the Cats will be hosted this Sunday by Nikita Cat.

And the Friday Ark is at the mouldator.

  1. We see ourselves in that tiger, yesh, we does. We thinks that it is a rotten thing that some bad ‘beans have hurt the tigers so much that there aren’t many any more. Shame on them! But, there are good people trying to help and we applaud their efforts.

  2. These tigers really does look like a bigger version of domestic cats. I like the smiley tail. He’s happy. :o)

  3. I adore tigers. They are magnificent animals and it is a crying shame that there are so few left. I really hope that the breeding program helps, but what the tigers really need is enough habitat. Happy Birthday, Luna!

  4. We wish humans weren’t so stupid, destroying their home and other Beings along with it.

    However, we came to give good wishes — to wish Luna a very happy birthday (November 30th)!
