[Mostly] Wordless Wednesday - Purrrrrrrrr & Links
Cute, isn't he? All fluffy and soft looking? Totally pet-able. Until he eats the villagers, that is.
This guy was at the Wild Animal Sanctuary. I've posted pictures of a few of the other critters (lions and tigers and bears...well, you know what comes next.)
Now for some links. Bearing in mind, as usual, that I am merely passing along links I've come across. I am not endorsing any of these publications, personally. Please always do your due diligence before submitting to a publication or contest.
