A Peaceable Kingdom: Dona Nobis Pacem


There's a whole lot goin' on today. It's Thursday Thirteen (an' I've been furry delinquent with my TT posts lately) an' it's also the Blog Blast for Peace bein' shepherded by Mimi. Mom got a great set of photos in an email from her dear friend Rose, too ... So I'm gonna combine efurrything into a ginormous THURSDAY posting ...



When hurricane Hannah separated two white tigers from their mother, Anjana came to the rescue. Anjana, a chimp at TIGERS in South Carolina, became surrogate mom and playmate to the cubs, even helping with bottle feeding. But here's the truly amazing part: Anjana does this all the time having raised leopard and lion cubs.

So here's a Thursday Thirteen of KYOOT white tiger cubs bein' cared for by a chimpanzee. The kitties don't know that Anjana isn't their momma ... they just know that she loves them and would do just about anything for them.

If monkeys an' kitties can show altruism an' ignore their fundamental differences ... Can't we?

I say "good for you" to surrogate kitty momma Anjana an' salute her for her compassion an' ability to care for other species.
