I love it that the lions at the San Diego Wild Animal Park have their very own SUV to hang out in:

I can't help but think that they appreciate the irony, particularly when you consider that it's a Range Rover. Talk about your Post-Colonial allegory. . .

Cats like Cars

My manx barn kitty Sophie has simular tendancies, and until yesterday when I hauled it off for Scrap, she enjoyed climbing into a 1980 Saab 900, and stretching out on the expansive dashboard in the sun. A particularly attractive location in wintertime.

Re: Cats like Cars

Especially in chilly Michigan! I still mean to do that meme, BTW, but haven't been online long enough during our trip to pull it off. I like that one, though, so I'm not blowing it off.

Yeah, unseasonably chilly. Over Memorial day weekend we had temps in the 90s, tomorrow night we are advised that we may get frost! It's the Fookin' 10th of June ferkrisakes!!! Actually the low is forecast to be 40 but the whole 7 county area will have pockets of frost, dipping down to 20. -doing a quick mental flip to figure out how we can cover our huge gardens...

Have fun!

Re: Range Rovers

No way! That cannot be a real picture. Tell me they don't have a Range Rover in the lions exhibit in San Diego! Is this the famous zoo--the one with Joan ?Embry?, the zookeeper who brought animals to late night talk show hosts--or a "free-range" place?

Re: Range Rovers

San Diego Wild Animal Park, which is part of the same non-profit that runs the world-famous San Diego Zoo. The animals have tons of space and seem very chill. But the Range Rover does make the exhibit different from the illusioneering that conveys a sense of an untrammeled wilderness.

Re: Range Rovers

Re: The Rover. Note all the glass has been removed and the tail lamps have been replaced with something more durable painted bright red. I love that the driver's door is open.
