Hi y'all! I know I normally duz Wordless Wednesday, but today all of Blogville are talkin bout Endangered Species and it are too important for me to be wordless.
I chose da Amur Leopard as my species. Ok, dis are just a leopard stuffy of my momma's and not a real leopard (I know y'all is shocked), but it are da best I could do. I mean, I asked momma to paint some spots on Travis and make him pose wif me, but she wuzn't gonna do dat.
Ok, dis are da real deal. What a pretty big kitty. Dese eggstremely rare leopards live in da far east of Russia (privet koshka!). And dey are critically endangered - dere are only about 60 left in the wild today.
Dese beeyootifull animals are so endangered because of habitat loss and prey scarcity. But mostly they is endangered becuz of nasty humans illegally poachin dem for dere gorgeous furs.
Dese big kitties are teetering on da brink of eggstinkshun.
Ya know I luvs da kitties I live wif, and dese big kitties remind of me of dem. And da big kitties has always been my momma's favorite wild animals, along wif dolphins. Which is why she felt sick when she saw someone she knows (not a friend) posing with a dead leopard dey shot on Facebook. And dat pickshure of da President's sons posin wif a leopard dey killed. :( Makes my momma (and me) real sad. Anyone who has to kill one of these pretty kitties to feel strong or like a real man are not a real man in my momma's book!
I'm hopin dese pretty kitties can make a comeback.
