Over the weekend, we watched African Cats, a beautifully photographed Disney documentary about lions and cheetahs. It was fun to observe how Tinsel and Lily reacted to seeing their cousins from Africa. Lily was particularly captivated by the playful lion cubs. At one point, Tinsel arched her back as if she needed to defend herself from an approaching lion!
While there are many similarities in behavior between domestic kitties and their wild cousins, we concluded that Tinsel and Lily live a much, much easier life -- especially when it comes to mealtime! These two pampered girls wouldn't fare so well in the wild! :)
