Ocelots, Tigers, and Servals, Oh My!

So Saturday I trekked down to the Carnivore Preservation Trust with my parents and my cousin (who is in town from NYC). Meg had to work and Nate took a pass. Sometimes about tigers escaping from their enclosures and eating him. Whatever! Although I was slightly worried about the 1.5-2 hour tour with no bathroom breaks, it was actually really cool (and I actually managed to hold it for two hours after drinking half my body weight in soda at the General Store Café)! I mean you get SO CLOSE to the tigers, it’s unreal. And also? No laws against owning a tiger in NC. Really?! How can that be possible? I mean sure it’s illegal to bring tigers across state lines, but who needs to bring them across state lines when there are idiots breeding them? It was also a very educational tour and it just made me hate stupid people even more. You know, people stupid enough to think owning a tiger is a good idea? (New flash: It’s not).

I don’t really remember much about Sunday except it involved a LOT of shopping, not terribly much actual purchasing, and a trip out to Ashley Furniture on Capital Blvd that I hope to never make again.

Then on Monday Nate started to not fell well. Something about having the chills and body ache. I told him to man up and tough it out. Kidding! I told him it was the flu and he needed to go home so he didn’t contaminate the rest of the office. Then I remembered that he was my ride home so I cleared it with my boss to work from home n case he did decide to go home early. My boss is awesome. We left at 1:30. He seems to be doing alright today so I don’t know if it was a 24 hour bug or not. He never had a fever (atleast not once we got home and could actually check it).

And I think that pretty much catches us up to today. I feel like I haven’t posted in forever and it’s not for lack of stuff to say (although maybe lack of interesting stuff), just for being lazy. I’m going to try to remedy that this week. The lazy part, not the uninteresting. That part you guys are stuck with! HA!

Also we’re sort of on the final countdown until the old house is officially not our problem any more. YAY! April 30, here we come!

One thought on “Ocelots, Tigers, and Servals, Oh My!

  1. I’ve always wanted to visit that place. My old boss is a tour guide there. She told me some GREAT stories about where the cats come from. She also told me you can’t bring very small children because their quick jerky movements make the tigers hungry.
